“I’m not close to playing.’’ – Carlos Beltran today after a MRI showed fluid build-up with his strained left oblique muscle.
The DL is a very real possibility, or at least it should be.
id be unhappy too if I was in the prime of my career and battling nagging injuries every year. Not for nothing,but maybe its time to find a new training method or something when you continue to have the same injuries year after year.
of course thats easy for me to say,what the hell do i know?
To Dan: You’re not taking a stab in the dark. When players have the type of injuries Beltran has had, revising their training isn’t off base. He’ll get asked that. I know he will, because I will ask him.-JD
Maybe Carlos should enlist the services of trainer Mackie Shilstone? He is the guy who Jose Reyes worked with and has been injury free with!! He’s a genius at what he does.
Any indication that this is serious enough to force Omar to think even harder than he has been to acquire an extra outfielder? This could be a pretty big deadline problem, but it could also be a blessing in disguise. It should force Omar to hold out on trading Milledge until he knows Beltran’s going to be back. Who else could play CF? Marlon Anderson (sarcasm)? Certainly not someone like Jermaine Dye, or either of the corner guys the Mets have now.
Man, at the beginning of the season, with Beltran and Endy coming off career years, and both Milledge and Gomez waiting in the wings, CF had to be the least of Omar’s concerns.
To Mark: Omar has to be talking about outfielders. How can he not be? But, he really does have to fight against overpaying.-JD
Fluid buildup? Could someone please explain to me what the heck that means? These baseball players and their injuries…
