Tis the season for some bench clearing brawls…we are overdue for a good one! If we can’t beat them, then let’s beat the crap out of them. Why do baseball players make the worse fighters?

What else can we talk about? wishing we were more of a seller at the deadline.

I do, FMFR, especially to watch guys like Duda. Speaking of which, in 204 ABs, he’s hitting .279 with 7 HRs and 35 RBIs. He has 13 2Bs and 3 3Bs. His OBP is .346, SLG is .475, OPS is .821 and he’s walked 19 times and struck out 39.

A full season is roughly 600 ABs, so multiply his numbers by 3 and that’s a pretty darn good season of 21 HRs, 105 RBIs and 39 2Bs.

let a = probability of injury
let b = probability of med staff diagnosing correctly
let c = probability of rehab setback

Now, lets say a = 50% b=.01% and c=75%

Now, lets adjust variables a, b, & c based on a statistical sample data on NY Met players from our friends at Elias:

a = 65%, b=.001% , c = 95%

Now, using the MS Excel function calcSeasonEndingInjuryFactor(a,b,c) developed by Paul D. Podesta and IBM, we can safely project Lucas Duda’s #s over a theoretical 162 games:

Looks like the door was slammed in their face again. Another Niese big inning meltdown, this is more than a pattern, it’s a problem.

Just as the Mets own Cole Hamels, so John Mayberry Jr owns the Mets, now with 3 of his 13 HRs and 12 of his 44 RBIs on the season against the Mets.
