Mets Minutia – 12/8/09

Posted by JD on December 8, 2009

Much was made last season of Fernando Tatis‘ proclivity for grounding into double plays, and rightfully so. Even though he only had 340 at-bats, it felt like he grounded into a double play every other bat. And he did GIDP once every 26.15 at-bats, which is nothing to write home about. But that’s nowhere near the top of the leaderboard. It’s less than half what Mike Piazza produced in his 1999 season (27), and exactly half of the second highest total (26, by Piazza in 02 and Cleon Jones in 70). In fact, Tatis doesn’t even come close to the top ten in that category. So he’s got that going for him, right?
