The Mets got a much needed win last night behind some good pitching and timely hitting. Steve Trachsel only mistake was Barry Bonds 710th career home run in the second inning. Beyond that Trachsel was solid.
Carlos Beltran sat out again. He hasn’t played since April 21. I think the team really needs to make a decision on Beltran. Jose Valentin‘s appearance as a pinch hitter last night is a clear indication that Beltran isn’t well enough to hit. Clearly an assesment needs to be made on putting him on the DL. If he can’t be ready by the Atlanta series then you’ve given up a roster spot for a week and may as well just DL him to open up that spot for someone else why Beltran gets better. Let’s not waste time on this one.
