All right, all right. Call it Lunching with the Mets. Little late today. Had to run some errands.
The NL Gold Glovers will be announced today, and Carlos Beltran is the most likely to snag anything. For the most part, the Mets played solid defense, but outside of Beltran, nothing that you would call scintillating. Off the top of my head, the catch Beltran made in Houston when he crashed into the wall might be the Mets’ defensive play of the year.
I also remember a diving, with-back-to-the-infield, catch by Anderson Hernandez in April. Damn, that seems such a long time ago.
David Wright also made a great play against Philly, but the Beltran plays stands out. Probably because he ended up getting hurt and missing a handful of games.
