Flushing Frivolity – 1/8/10

Posted by JD on January 8, 2010

After yesterday’s Frivolity, I decided to see which Mets position players had the most plate appearances in a single season without registering a single walk. Cover your eyes:

Rk Player PA BB Year Age
1 Shawon Dunston 97 0 1999 36
2 Ronn Reynolds 46 0 1985 26
3 Joe Moock 40 0 1967 23
4 Marco Scutaro 38 0 2002 26
5 Wayne Graham 33 0 1964 28
6 Rich Chiles 25 0 1973 23
7 Mario Diaz 23 0 1990 28
8 Sandy Alomar 22 0 1967 23
9 Brock Pemberton 22 0 1974 20
10 Sandy Alomar 22 0 2007 41
11 Ced Landrum 20 0 1993 29
12 Roy Staiger 19 0 1975 25
13 Craig Paquette 19 0 1998 29
14 John Milner 18 0 1971 21
15 Kevin Elster 18 0 1992 27
16 Tito Navarro 18 0 1993 22
17 Rick Parker 18 0 1994 31
18 Jorge Toca 17 0 2001 26
19 Choo Choo Coleman 16 0 1966 28
20 Ted Martinez 16 0 1970 22
21 Cleon Jones 15 0 1963 20
22 Mike Jorgensen 14 0 1968 19
23 Kevin Mitchell 14 0 1984 22
24 Rusty Tillman 13 0 1982 21
25 Lou Thornton 13 0 1989 26

Couple of thoughts: Obviously, it just cracks me up that Shawon Dunston leads the list. I liked the guy, but his lack of plate discipline never really sank in for me while he was here. Also, being on this list is not entirely a negative, as evidenced by Cleon Jones and Kevin Mitchell, who both went on to have special careers.

Mostly, I think it’s awesome, hilarious, and awesomely hilarious that both Sandy Alomars are on the list. That’s just how I roll.
