Mets Links: Carlos Beltran, Phillies Cheating, More

<a href=New York Mets v Washington Nationals" width="234">

On the heels of a home series lost to the Nationals again, it’s time for some Mets links. The team is in Miami for four games and really needs to show something against a division opponent. It’s warm in Miami, so Oliver Perez doesn’t have the built in excuse for getting bombed. Anyway, here are the links.

Carlos Beltran started some light running in Port St. Lucie. He says that he feels fine and is hoping to avoid another knee surgery.

The Phillies were caught on camera stealing signs against the Rockies. The Rox filed a complaint with MLB and the Phillies were reprimanded. The Mets filed the same complaint with the league two weeks ago when they roughed up Johan Santana. And Santana seems to agree with the assessment.

Jeff Francoeur has cooled off and the stat guys are out for his head again. I’m really not liking what I’m seeing from Francoeur right now. It looks like he’s regressing to his pre-Mets days.

MLB gave the Phillies three extra home games to avoid the G20 Summit in Toronto. Francoeur told the Daily News that it’s “bullshit”. And I couldn’t agree more.

Yahoo’s Slumpbot .200 has some good stats on the not-so-graceful aging Santana. They recommend that he find his change-up again quickly.
