The Giants are in excellent position to return to the playoffs and defend their World Series championship. This would be a great opportunity for Beltran who hasn't seen any playoff action since the 2006 NLCS. You know, the one where he struck out on 3 pitches, the last being a called third strike, against the St. Louis Cardinals Adam Wainwright to end the series and put the Cardinals in the World Series. An at-bat that has gone down as perhaps the most infamous in New York Mets history. That 2006 NLCS.
Oh yeah, almost forgot-- he struck out on 3 pitches with the bases loaded to end the game, leaving the tying and winning runs on base. That's the 2006 NLCS I'm referring to. But then again, who's remembering?
So GOOD LUCK in Frisco, Carlos.
As for his new teammate, Brian Wilson....
And finally, I wonder how Mr. Met is handling all the chaos surrounding his team?
Don't worry Mr. Met, I'm just as much a disgruntled Mets fan as you are.
UPDATE (7-28-11): Beltran accepts trade to Giants! http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=Ak1RPP6lj6Aikb9RyrLbjhgRvLYF?slug=ap-giants-beltran
