Now batting, number 15, Carlos Beltran

And with the $119 Million dollar signing of Beltran, as well as the earlier acquisition of Pedro Martinez, the Mets are serious contenders again. Mets leadership has given fans a reason to believe that the downward spiral of the last four or five years is finally reversing. They’ve also done a lot to ensure some actual viewership for their upcoming Cable TV station. It could be argued that the team would have been smarter to spend that dough on Vladimir Guerrero last year, but there’s no point in naysaying on a day like this.

Now, how about a decent first basemen?

It’s only mini-camp and I’m already starting to get excited about the season!
