It is now official, Carlos Beltran will return to the Mets lineup after the All Star break. In an article on ESPN New York, Beltran talks about his return to the game he loves, “I’m happy to be back and a part of the team,” Beltran said at Citi Field before Sunday’s Mets-Atlanta Braves game. “[And to] try to help accomplish our mission: trying to win the division and trying to be in the playoffs.” […]
The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend. Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance. And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber game against the Reds tonight, it won’t matter what the Braves do in Philly–the Mets will be 1 or 2 […]
Carlos Beltran took another major step toward his return last night as he played back-to-back nine-inning games in center field for the first time since he began his rehab assignment. Beltran, who is scheduled to return on July 15 against the San Francisco Giants, went 2-for-4 with a single, a double, a walk and a run scored. He also made four putouts in center field. “The knee is getting stronger and stronger,” Beltran said. ”Every day, I […]
Carlos Beltran continues to do well while playing rehab games in the Florida State League for St. Lucie. Last night, Beltran was 2-4 with an RBI and played all nine innings in centerfield and even made a diving catch. After the game Beltran spoke to reporters: “I feel better and better everyday,” Beltran said after the game. “Since I have began playing in games, I have not held back. I have played hard, the way the game […]
With all the uproar associated with those who even DARE mention Angel Pagan‘s name in a potential Cliff Lee trade, I thought it would be appropriate to explore a certain scenario. What if, just what if, Angel Pagan was putting up his 2010 numbers…… in another uniform. In other words, what if Pagan were on the Braves, hitting .302 with 4 HR, 35 RBI, 41 R, 14 SB and exceeding everyone’s expectations in nearly every way. […]
Just one look to the right and you can see just how far the Mets have come in the past 30 days. Or if you don’t feel like stretching your neck a little, here you go: The Mets, if nothing else, have surprised many a fan with many contributions coming from those we least expected like Ike Davis, Angel Pagan, R.A. Dickey, the catching tandem of Barajas and Blanco and yes even Ruben Tejada. The pitching, […]
How’s that for a sight for sore eyes? Last night, Port St. Lucie natives Larry and Dora Licastri were nice enough to share pictures and give us a great account of each of Carlos Beltran’s plate appearances from his first rehab game in Florida. They are two of the biggest and coolest Mets fans I know, and you can follow Larry on Facebook and see all of his great Mets pics including more of Beltran. Beltran […]
This is one of those posts that may incite a riot, but I’ll knock wood, and cross my fingers and toes when I say what I have to say…..that the Mets have had no serious injuries yet this season to key players. We won’t count Carlos Beltran, who had surgery back in January, or Jose Reyes, who began the year on the DL but joined the team shortly after. And we certainly won’t count underachievers […]
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 rather than targeting Jason Bay or Matt Holliday. I myself, saw Pagan as a great fourth outfielder and wanted the […]
