Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the league division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm-system overview.

Today we look at the New York Mets. It's time to kiss 'em goodbye.


For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
