New York Mets: 2012 Season in Review

Another season is in the books and for the 6th year in a row, the New York Mets will be watching October with the rest of us.

2012 was a disappointing season for The Amazin's. Although there were far from lofty expectations from the media and the fanbase at the start of the year, the Mets raced out to a quick start, giving them a 46-40 record and sitting them only 4.5 games behind the first place Washington Nationals.

The Mets in the first half were trademarked by a few things: they were young, they had a "never say die" attitude that tortured bullpens and they were exciting.

But, as is sadly often the case lately with the Mets, the wheels came off the bandwagon in the 2nd half of the season. 

Plagued by injuries and a leaky bullpen, the Mets stumbled through the first two weeks after the All Star Break, and by the end of July, they were virtually out of it.

In the end, the Mets finished 74-88 and in 4th place in the National League East. Clearly it was a rough season, but through it all, there were still some gems over the 162 game marathon. Let's look back at the 2012 season for the New York Mets.
