Flushing Frivolity – OPS+

Posted by JD on February 3, 2010

Out of curiosity, I used Baseball Reference’s Play Index to generate the Mets career leaderboard for OPS+ (minimum 540 plate appearences). Check it out:

Rk First Last OPS+ PA From To
1 Darryl Strawberry 145 4549 1983 1990
2 John Olerud 142 2018 1997 1999
3 David Wright 136 3665 2004 2009
4 Mike Piazza 136 3941 1998 2005
5 Keith Hernandez 129 3684 1983 1989
6 Carlos Beltran 127 2966 2005 2009
7 Bobby Bonilla 127 2040 1992 1999
8 Tommy Davis 125 621 1967 1967
9 Howard Johnson 124 4591 1985 1993
10 Dave Magadan 122 2483 1986 1992
11 Carlos Delgado 121 2023 2006 2009
12 Lance Johnson 121 1023 1996 1997
13 Rico Brogna 121 889 1994 1996
14 Kevin McReynolds 120 3218 1987 1994
15 Steve Henderson 120 2029 1977 1980
16 Rusty Staub 119 2965 1972 1985
17 Donn Clendenon 118 957 1969 1971
18 Bernard Gilkey 117 1567 1996 1998
19 Art Shamsky 117 1345 1968 1971
20 Cliff Floyd 116 1884 2003 2006
21 Rickey Henderson 116 650 1999 2000
22 Lenny Dykstra 115 1908 1985 1989
23 Benny Agbayani 114 1083 1998 2001
24 Daryl Boston 114 1016 1990 1992
25 Fernando Tatis 113 685 2008 2009

Look who cracks the top 25: Fernando Tatis. Granted, he checks in just behind Benny Agbayani and Daryl Boston, but still…top 25. Tatis has been 13% better than league average for the past two years. Not a bad signing for less than $1 million guaranteed.
