In this installment of the Mets Weekly Report with Kerel Cooper of On The Black, we talk about the Carlos Beltran trade. Beltran went to the Giants for minor league pitcher Zack Wheeler last week. We recap the trade and talk about whether we think it was favorable for the Mets. We also talk about the Mets strategy, in general, of trading K-Rod and Beltran but holding onto everyone else.
David Wright is also a topic of discussion this week. Is David Wright the undisputed leader of this team now that Beltran’s gone? We talk about Wright’s leadership skills and his relatively lengthy tenure with the Mets.
