    The New York Mets' 1992 season was the 31st regular season for the Mets. The Mets entered the season attempting to improve on their 1991 season, where due in part to a second half collapse they finish 78-84 after being in second place for most of the first two-thirds of the year. Instead, the Mets fell back to 5th place in the NL East with a 72-90 record. This was the Mets' first season under manager Jeff Torborg, who replaced the fired Bud Harrelson.

    All 81 of the Mets' home games were played at Shea Stadium.

    The Mets lost 90 games despite an offseason of acquisitions designed to help the team better compete. The team acquired several big name players in free agency and trades, including veteran second baseman Willie Randolph, power-hitting first baseman Eddie Murray, and star pitcher Bret Saberhagen. The biggest of the acquisitions was outfielder Bobby Bonilla, who signed a five-year deal for just over $29 million. None of these acquisitions resulted in any success, as Saberhagen was ineffective, Randolph was injured, and Bonilla failed to live up to the deal he had signed and often heard boos from the Shea Stadium crowds. In response to Bob Klapisch's book on the 1992 Mets, The Worst Team Money Could Buy: The Collapse of the New York Mets (ISBN 0-8032-7822-5), Bonilla confronted Klapisch in the team's clubhouse, threatening him, and having to be restrained.[1][2]
