Carlos Beltran's Met career is over, but he will live on in the Mets Run Factor. His final numbers with the Mets are indicated below through his last game with the team on July 26 against the Reds.

Daniel Murphy, the only Met to play in at least 100 games, moved ahead of Jason Bay in the run factor. Murphy has a mild eight game hitting streak and during that time he has raised his average from .308 to .319.

What is the Mets Run Factor? 

The Mets Run Factor is a fairly simple statistical metric. It takes the "Runs produced" sabermetric created by Bill James and divides it in two different ways.

Equation 1

The first equation is R + RBI - HR / G = Runs produced per game, as indicated in the chart above as MRF/G.

Equation 2

The second equation is R + RBI - HR / PA = Runs produced per plate appearance, as indicated in the chart above as MRF/PA.

The Mets Run Factor is updated every Monday. See past Mets Run Factor reports.
