After just 1 spring game Carlos Beltran has been Spring DL’d for 4-5 days due to a “little tendinitis”.
Raise your hand if you find this incredibly alarming — yup me too.
What are the odds that Beltran’s knee actually gets to a place where it’s healthy enough to play without pain?
Pretty Friggin’ Slim!
Once again I stand by my observation about Beltran punting CF. The guy wouldn’t have given up his position unless he knew he was going to be hobbled all season.
Perez surrendered 3R in 3IP but did manage to touch 89 on the gun. I guess we should be encouraged by improved mph but I gotta believe it’s only a matter of time before Perez gets his walking papers.
There’s an Alderson, Collins, Warthen meeting to discuss Ollie’s future so hopefully we’ll all be put if out our misery sooner than later…
Shout out to Rick “The Jacket” Peterson for telling it like it is about the Met “collapse” in ‘07.
Peterson sez it wasn’t a collapse at all - instead it was a complete lack of depth that prevented them from recovering from the losses of Pedro, El Duque and Billy Wags.
He’s 100% correct and you realize as much when he reminds us the replacement players were essentially Brian Lawrence, Dave Williams and Jorge Sosa.
Wow - those guys are so forgettable I couldn’t have given you one of their names if there was a gun to my head.
