By SBRForum.com The 2012 regular season was another disappointment for the New York Mets, who went 74-88 and did not even have a chance of entering the post season.  They had plenty of things wrong with their play throughout the season, most notably their terrible offense and lack of overall depth.  They will need to fix these as well as some contract issues if they want to have a chance in 2013. Photo by Michael G. Baron When it comes to their hitting, the Mets are definitely bottom tear in the league.  They have few people to count on and very rarely come out swinging, both metaphorically and literally.  They need to find ways to get the job done at bat with most of their players and not just two.  The two I’m referring to are David Wright and Ike Davis.  These two pack a punch and can get on base more often than not, but they really are all the team has.  This brings us to their overall lack of depth throughout the team.  They started strong on the season but could not stay healthy and determined enough to continue winning games. Also, with the team having contract issues with both Wright and R.A. Dickey, you can bet they are in panic mode as of right now.  They have so many things to fix before April and do not know where to start.  If they cannot clear up all of these problems, then we could be seeing yet another year of the Mets playing lackluster baseball. With all the problems the Mets are facing going into this offseason, making them one of your MLB picks once the betting starts on the season will be extremely risky.  They have a long way to go before they are considered one of the elite teams in the league.
