BRAVES-METS by Tom Brennan
Not an exhaustive analysis, but just a few thoughts.
The BRAVES had won 7 of 8 before being swept in 3 close games by the despised Nationals. So they are showing real improvement and scoring more.
Despite scoring more of late, they are still 29th in runs at 540.
Despite the Mets scoring more of late, the Mets are 27th in runs at 552, even with 92 more long balls than the Bravos.
Freddie Freeman, Mets' arch-nemesis, is having a fine year, with nearly 40 doubles and nearly 30 homers. May his reign of Met-targeted terror end this weekend.
Anthony Recker has roughly 70 at bats and is hitting .279. Figures. Don't be the Mets' season recker, Anthony.
The Brave's D'Arnaud has 7 more RBIs than TDA's 14. 35 RBIs for an entire family in mid-September is none too good, though, if you ask me.
Mets will take 2 of 3 in their continued trek towards the Wild Card and October Glory.
Somewhere, Lucas Duda is taking batting practice. Nothing to do with anything, just rambling.
