So i just woke up (it is 10am but i have the morning off work so had a little lie in..) and seen the news about Carlos Beltran’s surgery. It took my awhile to soak in all the blogs/tweets/press release/ forum posts and in the end i still think the whole thing is weird.
So he will be out for roughly 3 months, i’m sure a lot of fans are skeptical of this approximation based on last years injury ridden season. If however it appears that 3 months is accurate then i’d be happy with Pagan taking over the role for awhile.
I sincerely hope that Beltran has a speedy recovery and that this whole mess gets cleared up quickly.
Whether or not the surgery gained blessing from the Mets i’m pretty certain that it will get spun to be OK by the organisation eventually.
With just a few weeks until spring training its not exactly a big team morale booster. Lets hope the rest of the team manage to stay mentally pumped and in the right place for the coming months.
On a more positive note, i have arranged to visit NYC in May and should hopefully get to the Mets vs Giants games which i’m so excited about its unreal!
and on a more somber note, whatever happens in sport or travel, nothing compares to the harsh reality of what has happened in Haiti, my thoughts and prayers go to everyone there.
