As I wrote in a previous article, the 2012 New York Mets are exceeding all expectations thus far. Led by RA Dickey, Johan Santana and David Wright, the team is surprising almost everyone in baseball.

After this week's sweep of the Rays, the Mets are six games over .500 with a 35-29 record.

What's even more impressive is that the Mets are doing this with a shaky bullpen and questionable defensive play. In looking through the first 64 games of the season, there are at least 13 games that the Mets could have won. In some cases, these are games they should have won. The common thread in all of these losses is the unreliable bullpen and at times inept defense.

If the Mets had won even half of these near misses, they very well could be leading the National League East. 

On the plus side, if they can improve in these areas, the Mets could put together a serious post-season run.

Here's a look at the games they should have won.
