I have been trying to think of a way to make an image to portray this information. During tonights ‘game’, after Howard’s grand slam, I decided to put it together in this format. I couldn’t decide which of these two images to use, so why not post both? Up represents home runs hit by opponents, Down represents the Mets. Because there is no other direction to symbolize the Mets. Anyhow, in the second image, the length of the line represents the value of the home run. Longest being a grand slam, obviously.
As you can see in the picture, the Mets started nicely, had a nice little forest around the 1/3 point, and have been meandering their way through the daunting steppes ever since. Barely a tree in sight, and even the ones they manage to find are twisted, gnarled, and hopelessly insufficient for their needs.
Meanwhile, their opponents find themselves in a lush forest full of happy little woodland animals, happiness and success.
