Many Mets fans on this site, spent a great deal of time debating whether outfielder Angel Pagan was capable of playing leftfield everyday or if he was nothing more than a good fourth outfielder. We had posts that wanted him as the leftfielder so that we could go after a starting pitcher over the winter […]

An Under-appreciated All-Star: A Case For Carlos Beltran

An article by posted on June 22, 2010 0 Comments

On October 19th, 2006 Adam Wainwright’s knee-buckling curve ball did more than strike out Carlos Beltran to end the NLCS and shatter the Mets hopes of going to the World Series.  Once Tim Welke called strike 3, opinions of Carlos in the minds of Met fans would be altered.  That one at-bat, that one pitch, may have set the groundwork for  Beltran becoming on of […]
