If The Mets’ 2012 Seasons Were A Book…

I want these bookends!


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…
