One team that is somewhat on the rise is my #20 team, the New York Mets. I am nowhere close to becoming a Mets fan by any means, but I no longer despise them. When I first started watching baseball I liked two teams, the Cardinals and the Reds. Because of this, I also hated two teams, the Mets and the Dodgers. Yes young folks, the Dodgers-Reds and Cardinals-Mets rivalries were two of the best of the 1980s. Of course, those rivalries have since lapsed due to divisional realignment. The Dodgers are still my favorite team's rival, but I still can't quite get rid of the feeling that the Mets are also the bad guys. I think it is starting to wane though, because now it just seems that the Mets don't matter that much. Maybe a few years down the road will even let me sometimes cheer for New York's "other team." Until that happens, let's take a look at some trivia along with the first half of the 2012 New York Mets.
