Tonight’s win was nice. I’ll leave it at that with the exception of a few short thoughts….
It’s amazing how different the New York Mets look with Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran in the lineup. You could literally almost feel the difference couldn’t you? That might be a tad too dramatic but you get the point.
There is a lot of talk tonight about Reyes and Beltran, and rightfully so. I’m sure they enjoyed being back, and more importantly, being productive. I couldn’t help notice how much more relaxed their teammates looked in the lineup (with the exception of Jason Bay *sigh*). That is a fun little byproduct of their awesomeness.
The Real Reason Why I Brought You Here Tonight
I wanted to take a second to tell you that I am not going to participate in the “Where will Carlos be traded to guessing game?”. Not because I’m too cool or anything like that. It’s just that I’m trying to enjoy his last few games as a Met.
I get that people dig the trade rumors, so I’m not trying to rain on their parade or anything. I just don’t give a shit where Carlos goes, as long as Mr. Alderson can get some value for him. That’s as far as I’ll take it.
To summarize my friends, I’m sitting this one out. I’m going to watch #15 continue to find the gaps from both sides of the plate and go about his business for the next 11 games or so. As I do, I’ll reminisce about the times when he patrolled centerfield tracking down potential doubles and triples effortlessly.
Thanks for listening,
