Those Walkin’ Mets

Despite being four games under .500 the New York Mets have outscored their opponents through 108 games this season.  By pure run differential the Mets are better than the Yankees, Cardinals, Rays, Pirates and Reds in 2014.

So how have the team from Flushing been able to score runs?  The Base-On-Balls.

NYM lead the National League in walks.   Terry Collins‘ lineup features five players with on-base percentages over .330.  Lucas Duda, Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy, Ruben Tejada and David Wright have all been very good at reaching base this year.  Only St. Louis has as many high OBP guys as the Mets.
