When Carlos Beltran proclaimed the Mets the team to beat, Philly’s Jimmy Rollins said it showed signs of him being becoming more of a vocal leader.
That hasn’t been lost on Beltran, who said he’ll speak up more this season.
“You donâ€™t always lead by what you do on the field,â€™â€™ Beltran said. “I feel fine. I wonâ€™t say anything I donâ€™t feel. I will say whatâ€™s on my mind.’’
Beltran has been quiet as a Met, but this is a good sign. I want Beltran to speak up more, if for no other reason, than to deflect some of the attention from David Wright.
