After a 2009 season filled with injuries and disappointment, we were all ready to turn the page this season and move on. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to do that. Carlos Beltran, arguably the Mets best position player, had “unauthorized” knee surgery in January and still hasn’t returned 17 weeks later.
Beltran was scheduled to be out for 12 weeks of recovery but still hasn’t begun baseball activities to get ready to play. There has been rumor and innuendo that Beltran is dogging his rehab in preparation for his walk year in 2011. Maybe that’s true, who knows?
The latest news is that he’ll be back in July, at the earliest. That raises questions that I’d like to hear from you about. When do you think he’ll be back? A poll is embedded below.
