No evaluation of the Mets is complete without a list of disappointments. While 46-40 at the break, the Mets have more to be happy about than not. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t laments.
Had everything broken right in the first half, the Mets could be sitting on top of the NL East.
Here’s what went wrong:
The struggling bullpen: Most of Sandy Alderson’s off-season tinkering was made with improving the bullpen in mind. Frank Francisco has pitched well enough, but is a house of cards. He’s coming off a strained oblique, so there are no guarantees in the second half. Set-up man Jon Rauch has also been hurt an ineffective.
Mike Pelfrey’s injury: Considering how well the Mets’ rotation has performed, is this a disappointment? You’d have to say yes, because a well-functioning Pelfrey should be worth at least five victories. Compounding the disappointment is the injury to Dillon Gee, which could keep him out the remainder of the season.

The Mets will be faced with an upcoming roster move soon as Gee is about to go on the DL till at least September. You can read about that story everywhere, it’s not the focus here.
What are the Mets supposed to do? Do they trade for another pitcher? Do they rely on Batista? Do they rush Harvey?
Harvey says he’s ready, and his last several starts have shown improvement but Mets...
Who should fill the rotation spot of Dillon Gee?
Dillon Gee now knows the problem he has been dealing with and it’s not good at all. Gee had an arterial clot, not a vein clot. So this is completely different from what Bobby Parnell had gone through.
The only recent pitcher data available who went through this is Jeremy Bonderman and once it happened to him, he was done. I believe...
Few Mets fans have been riding the Dillon Gee bandwagon for as long as I have. To me, and some of my closest Mets fan friends, he’s the second-coming of Rick Reed, down to sharing the number the veteran righty wore in his time in New York.

After an All-Star break with some highs and lows, the Mets are ready to begin the second half of 2012 after some mild roster tailoring.
The glaring difference for now is the lack of Dillon Gee after the discovery of a blood clot which has him sentenced to shoulder surgery which could potentially end his season. Lefty reliever Josh Edgin has entered the fray however.
