Mets 2nd In This Week's Power Ranking

Jay Jaffe at Baseball Prospectus , gives the power rankings for the entire league:

Mets (2nd)

OK Duque: Orlando Hernandez sparkles in his return from the DL (6 2 0 0 0 4), helping to fortify a rotation that's third in the league in SNLVAR. El Duque is 21st in the NL despite his month-long absence, joining John Maine, Tom Glavine, and Oliver Perez on the leaderboard. The Mets' outfield could use that kind of patchwork, given that the surprisingly effective (.314/.373/.485) Shawn Green's first-ever trip to the DL accompanies injuries to Moises Alou, Lastings Milledge, Carlos Gomez, and now Carlos Beltran. Perhaps they can clone Endy Chavez, who's hitting .315/.360/.446 in limited duty to top last year's surprising .306/.348/.431.
