New York Mets OF Carlos Beltran has bad knees, and apparently bad business practices as well.

According the local CBS affiliate in New York City, Beltran, who is the co-owner of Sofrito’s in Manhattan, is being sued by two employees (a bartender and a waiter) who are claiming Sofrito’s owners did not pay them overtime and their tips were distributed among workers who hadn’t earned them.

The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages for themselves and more than 50 other workers.

Sofrito’s is a Puerto Rican restaurant on 57th between First and Sutton Place in NYC. I have never been there, but the Ropa Vieja Con Arroz, More Y Maduros sounds pretty good. For the people like me who fell asleep during high school Spanish class, Ropa Vieja Con Arroz, More Y Maduros is translated to shredded beef stew with black bean rice and sweet plantains.

I personally don’t think this will effect Beltran on the field one bit.
