Last night Carlos Beltran made his return to Citi Field playing in his first game since June 21, 2009.  At the time Beltran was placed on the DL the Mets were just 2 games out of 1st place in the National League East.  They were above the .500 mark.  One of the reasons why the […]

Beltran’s Heroic Blast Falls Short, Mets Fall 4-2

Not so much a recap this morning, but instead an anatomy of one single at-bat… An at-bat that almost was… Last night, with the Mets down 4-2 and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, Carlos Beltran made his way from the batting circle to the plate. “Could this really be happening?”, I thought […]

Carlos Beltran returns to the Mets starting lineup tonight for the first time in more than two months, reports Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. While his return will not help the Mets avoid missing the playoffs for the third straight year, Beltran’s return should bring some legitimacy to the Mets lineup. Prior to […]

Last night Carlos Beltran returned from a “bone bruise,” on his knee in a rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones. I keep hearing, and reading people asking why he is even trying right now. My opinion, he is auditioning to prove he is healthy enough to garner attention on the trading market this winter in […]

Carlos Beltran stormed out of the gates quickly this year, leading the National League in hitting for a good portion of the first few months of the season.  Then he started feeling some pain in his right knee but continued to play through it.  Finally, on June 22, the pain became too much for him […]

While we all know how the Mets have suffered what has basically amounted to season-ending injuries for several players, among them arguably our two top sluggers in Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado, I don’t think any of us expected this power outage to be legendary.  Because that’s what this is bordering on. The Mets have […]

Going into the 2009 season hopes were high for the Mets.  Most people believed that once the Mets signed Francisco “K-Rod” Rodriguez that all the problems from last year were solved.  Last year the bullpen killed us in our race to the playoff’s but that was not the only reason why missed out of the […]

Despite some earlier rumors that suggested Carlos Beltran’s season may be over, he continues to work toward a September return. I don’t know exactly what purpose his return will serve at this point in time, but it would be nice to see him playing centerfield and providing some additional pop to our anemic lineup. Beltran took another step […]

The Mets played one heck of a series against the Phillies this weekend, sweeping Philly and securing their lead atopthe NL East, pushing the Phillies back 16.5 games in the division. At this point, don’t be surprised if the Nats don’t pass the current 4th place team. Then their only hope would be to play spoiler. What a series for […]

Who Are These Doctors Anyway?

You know, I can accept the fact that the injury bug has bitten our Mets hard this season, and that freak accidents have hurt, as has being beaned in the head by opposing pitchers.  We’ve learned to accept that we have average to below-average replacements and that the season was basically over before the all-star […]
