BMF had to smile when I saw Beltran’s quote over on MetsBlog
“What happened in 2006, you have to turn the page. That’s over. We can’t bring 2006 back to 2012. It has been six years. If they want to continue to think about that moment, then that’s their problem. Like I said, I have turned the page. I have really moved on.”
It’s so preposterous that some Met fans held that moment against Beltran for all these years.
Holding that moment against Beltran is a symbol of what’s wrong with the Mets. We suffer self inflicted wounds on every level of the organization.
First the owner’s meddling son poisons the front office, then all of the money vanishes when Wilpon finds himself in his second ponzi scheme in a decade.

And often the fans are no better. We pick a target, zero in on him until we ruin his career or run him out of town whichever comes first. (Luis Castillo)
I realize Beltran was frustrating at times but I guarantee you we miss him this summer.
