The players included are the ones who, for the most part, have had the most at-bats at their position this season. What I found really surprised me.
For every position except third base the Phillies player had a higher OPS. Further, while four Phillies had an OPS above .900, not one Met did.
Ready for a second suprise?
The 2007 salaries for the eight Mets total to $61,930,585; in comparison, the eight Phillies' salaries total to $36,495,714.
Phillies: higher OPS's, lower salaries. That could prove to be a dangerous combination for the Mets as the pennant run heats up.
