I was very happy to see LosB back in action and immediately serve a single to right for his first hit in his first AB. Everyone is saying how great he looks but all told Beltran looked creaky to me. Yeah he rounded third and slide home ahead of the tag but he just looks less Beltran-ish than I’m used to.
His effortless gait isn’t there. Carlos proclaimed himself about 80% which is good since he’s got room for great improvement. Then again it’s a far cry from 100% and we all know Carlos’ game falls off when his legs are less than perfect.
Unfortunately I suspect we’re gonna have a more diminished Beltran than we’re all hoping for. mean why else would he walk away from Center?
I love watching Lucas Duda hit bombs. I’m hoping he gets AB’s once Beltran and Bay hit the DL.
It feels good to see Mookie back in the Met family again - but to see Wilson with the number 53 on his back ain’t right.
