If The Mets’ 2012 Seasons Were A Book…
Hey, anybody read any good books lately? I’m so busy watching AMC most of the time, that I hardly get any time to read anymore. That said, I’ve comprised a Winter Reading List for those of you who might want to catch up on some compelling reads during the cold upcoming months of another quiet Mets offseason.
I asked myself, what if the Mets’ 2012 seasons were a book, what books would they be. Hey what do you want, I’m bored…

About the Author: Joe DeCaro
I'm a lifelong Mets fan who loves writing and talking about the Amazins' 24/7. From the Miracle in 1969 to the magic of 1986, and even the near misses in '73 and '00, I've experienced it all - the highs and the lows. I started Mets Merized Online in 2005 to feed my addiction.
