Beltran's First Game Back

At Rotoworld, they write about Carlos Beltran and how he did in today's ST game agenst the Tigers:

Carlos Beltran started in center field on Wednesday after missing Tuesday's game with neck and quad tightness.

Beltran went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts from the second spot in the Mets order. Beltran hit third behind Paul Lo Duca throughout last year, but Lo Duca was hitting fifth today. Moises Alou and Carlos Delgado hit third and fourth, respectively, and David Wright and Shawn Green were used behind Lo Duca. It's probably just something Willie Randolph wanted to take a look at. Beltran hitting second is a very good idea, but Lo Duca did do better than expected there last year, and if the catcher is going to be moved down, it makes little sense to put him ahead of the vastly superior Wright.
