If he hadn't been trending this way for the last two years, I'd put a little more stock in the hurt back argument.

i've heard a theory that the matt cain pitch he took to the head in 09 could have affected his approach at the plate. he's been standing farther from the plate the last couple years, but i don't know if there's a correlation anywhere in there. either way, his stance is full of holes and he gets beat way too often on the outside.

It's that, Hojo as hitting coach for two years, the move to Metco or a combination of the 3. All 3 coincided with the drastic increase in K's.

After yesterday, I hope Collins decides to leave Beltran in the 3 hole... at least for a little while. As a side note, I am thinking of starting a twitter campaign to convince the Mets to trade Wright and use the savings to sign Reyes to a long term deal. One of those two is built for that park and the other likes to swing at face high fastballs and hit warning track flys to the deepest part of the yard... Plus, I'm pretty convinced that a change of scenery would be a huge benefit to Wright's career.

Quote:
Beltran belts three homers: Mets OF Carlos Beltran clubbed three homers and tied a career-high with six RBI in New York's 9-5 win over Colorado on Thursday. Beltran went deep off three different pitchers, including Rockies SP Ubaldo Jimenez in the first, to post the first three-homer game of his career and first in the majors this season. It was also the fifth time Beltran has homered from the left and right side in a game as a member of the Mets, tying him with Todd Hundley for the most in team history. Beltran finished 3 for 5 against Colorado and is now hitting .295 this year. "I never smile a lot, but I was smiling," Beltran said. "It's going to be a day I'll never forget."

Fantasy Analysis
Beltran continues to amaze despite health concerns at the beginning of the season and is now tied for 10th in the National League with 24 RBI. With David Wright (back) held out of the lineup Thursday, Beltran hit from the third spot in the batting order -- the position he has clubbed more than half of his 288 career homers. The 34-year-old slugger has now slugged five home runs in his last nine games to give him eight total this season. He has displayed unexpected durability this season and with everyday at-bats in New York's lineup, should be considered a strong OF option in the majority of Fantasy formats.

Um, hello? Spot on tha1000, leave him at 3.

in addition to the holes in his swing, he's starting to put an uppercut on it. someone really needs to get in his ear. this is starting to be ridiculous.

He needs to get the hell out of NYC... If I'm Alderson, I trade Wright, trade Beltran, use the money saved to sign Reyes to an extension... done and done.

Wright has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back... headed to the DL for quite a while.

Welcome to my starting lineup, Mr. Wilson Betemit... FML.

Thanks for the heads up. I had enough time to make the switch in my weekly league.

Here's hoping for a big week from Betemit... :food-smiley-004:
