All the talk centering around Jose Reyes involves him being in a contract year and possibly being traded. And with good reason. The Mets' shortstop is having a fantastic season, ranking No. 2 in MLB in hits (82) and No. 1 in triples (10).

He also leads the Mets as the most effective at producing runs.

Here's a look at the season's MRF thus far.

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.
