Carlos Beltran offers his thoughts on the Mets

Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals are facing the Mets today. It’s Beltran’s first action against his old team. And if Beltran facing Adam Wainwright in freaking early-spring batting practice was deemed newsworthy, you can bet than him facing the Mets is too.

To that end, Jon Paul Morosi asked Beltran for his thoughts on the Mets:

“You have to be a little frustrated for the fans, knowing probably the team isn’t going to be what the fans really want to see out there. But at the end of the day, they have prospects, players who are going to be good one day. But when that day’s going to be, only God knows.”

There’s nothing terribly controversial about any of that. So why do I feel like it’s going to be leveraged into something controversial by talk radio or whoever by lunchtime today?

Maybe I’m wrong. But I dunno.

    Carlos basically explained every baseball team in the MLB. If every player was good every game, teams would go undefeated.

      So… Mets fans exist, is what you’re saying?

    The Mets were built on the same faulty model for sustained success that quite a few teams (the Astros, for one) employed during the last decade, and the consequences of that are just coming home for some of those teams. Carlos is just surveying the results and giving his considered opinion.

    No doubt he is correct. But how long it will take to come back will depend on how well they execute the recovery. You can plan to do it; but you still have to draft, develop and maintain the right people. And they are in what is getting to be a pretty tough division.

    I have no doubt that NYC’s sports radio phone lines will be lighting up with infuriated fans this afternoon, although he really didn’t say anything patently offensive.

    They are always more fired up when someone tells them the truth, that’s not what they tuned in to hear.

    We are New York and we are better than you, even when our teams suck. Get over it.
