Mets Final 2020 Report Card

Well, that was quick and weird. All the Mets had to do was be .500 and they would have made the playoffs. And they couldn’t even manage that. Since the Mets only played 60 games, it could be difficult to judge the final statistics. So what I did here was extrapolate what players’ numbers would have been over a 162-game schedule (just multiply by 2.7). I did not do this for players acquired at the trade deadline because they were only on the team for a short time. So here it is — the Mets final 2020 report card:

conforto

Lockdown reliever. Then couple of good starts, couple of terrible ones.
