I feel like I do these at least once a week. It is so sad.
Well there is some news on the Carlos Beltran front. He worked out back-to-back days and said he was pain free.
Here’s what he told the media:
I took balls going back, to the sides, coming forward. I didn’t feel anything [pain] in what I did out there.
An MRI is scheduled for the end of the month which will determine whether he can come back or not.
I really do not understand why we are still talking about this. This is why I have to criticize the Mets and how they handle their injuries.
The Mets are not making it to the playoffs. It is time to come to that realization. So why force Beltran to come back. Just shut him down for the season and be done with it.
There is no point in having him, Jose Reyes or Carlos Delgado back in the line-up at this point in the year.
I want Beltran to just rest and do what he needs to do for next year. That is if he does not have the microfracture surgery. The same thing for Reyes. I would not worry about Delgado because I do not see the Mets bringing him back next year anyway.
Billy Wagner did not come back to the Mets yesterday as anticipated. According to the New York Post, a Mets spokesperson said Wagner was helping his family get settled in a new home in Virginia.
He will be activated during this week. It is not known on what day.
Jerry Manuel said when he does come back, he will still be on a “regimented schedule”. Obviously!
