Nothing stops Carlos Beltran these days . Not even a foul ball off his protected shin/ankle.
The Mets start a road trip against the Brewers who are 21-7 at home and Beltran is in the lineup. Chris Capuano gets the start against his former team. Mets start play just a couple of games under .500 and 5.5 games out of the wild card at this juncture.
Mr Beltran is trying to show some interested teams out there that he will play no matter what. The Mets need his bat since Bay has been useless to this point.
Reyes-SS; Turner-3B; Beltran-RF; Murphy-1B; Pagan-CF; Bay-Left out; Thole-C; Tejada-SS; Capuano P
