BUCK: Proving very valuable. It’s...

Buck-ing the System: Taking A Look At Contact Rates

Baseball is a game of adjustments. The Mets under Dave Hudgens’ tutelage have adopted a doctrine of selectivity that emphasizes seeing lots of pitches, running up pitch-counts, zoning in on your pitch, and ultimately getting on base one way or another. There has been a lot of discussion on MMO about whether this approach is effective. The consensus, bolstered by a pile of data...

If you were asked to close your eyes and I told you the following numbers 7 home runs 22 RBIs 290 Average 303 on base percentage and a 661 slugging percentage and said who on the Mets has those numbers you think maybe David Wright?
