Did you know that Carlos Beltran not only speaks English, but also follows his team in the offseason? Shove that in your pipe LoDuca. And while Carlos apparently doesn't have access to a television or internet access in beautiful Puerto Rico to follow the team on his own - he never has to worry about being up to date on essential Mets-related news and information:
"I paid a lot of attention to this," the Mets' center fielder said of his team's offseason, made prosperous with the trade for Johan Santana.
Assistant general manager Tony Bernazard kept him apprised by phone, but Beltran wants to look down the aisle of lockers in the Mets' clubhouse in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to see Santana.
Well thank you Tony! We could have a CF who didn't even know we acquired the BPInB if it wasn't for you!
And guess what baseball fans...Carlos doesn't yet feel 100%!!!!!
Beltran had both knees scoped over the winter.
"I don't feel 100 percent, but I hope to be by the start of the season," Beltran said. "I couldn't play anymore like that. I didn't feel pain as much as I did weakness.
"I just want to be 100 percent and to be able to do a lot more."
Ladies and Gentlemen your 2008 New York Mets! Your Collapse Has Come!
