Overall Season Analysis
I was not expecting a playoff berth for the Mets this season, so the fact that they were in the race until the last couple weeks of the season was a bonus! Pitching was great, bullpen was spotty, Alonso was awesome, and with a little more consistency in the middle of the season, this would have been well beyond expectations!
