Don’t get me wrong - I’m a big Carlos Beltran fan. In fact I own a Beltran jersey.
But the inevitable is approaching and since I know he’s going I’m excited at the idea of adding a quality young Alderson acquired prospect. As good as LosB has been he’s on the backside of his career.
Beltran is also a giant link to Minaya and BMF is all for cutting most ties to that era.
But a strapping young Philly, Frisco, or Texas prospect will be someone new to root for and I can’t wait for the kid(s) to get here.
Niese should cross off one of those bullpen blown W’s off his karma list since he got a gift if a win after giving up 5 ER in 5 IP.
David Wright continues to rake ever since his recent DL induced maturation process. It’ll be interesting to see how he responds once Beltran is gone.
I really gotta tip my hat to Daniel Murphy. The kid can flat out hit. He’s proved this yet again in 2011 but the crazy part is he’ll almost certainly enter 2012 without a lock on a position.
