Before the first pitch was even thrown, most Mets fans knew what to expect for the 2013 season.

With Johan Santana sidelined for the year and an outfield consisting of Lucas Duda, Collin Cowgill, Mike Baxter, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Jordany Valdespin, it was obvious that a championship was a long shot.

These expectations were met as the Mets finished their schedule with the exact same 74-88 record they had in 2012. They did, however, finish third as the once mighty Phillies managed just 73 wins.

Despite the less than stellar season, there were enough bright spots to give Mets fans hope for the future. Injuries and ineffective play allowed the club to give valuable playing time to a number of up-and-coming players. Zack Wheeler, Travis d'Arnaud, Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares were just a few of the players who showed promise while gaining significant major league experience.

Here's a look at the final regular-season grades for the Mets using the standard report card grading system.
