Time To Ride The Pine

Carlos Beltran said that if Moises Alou or Endy Chavez were on the roster, then he would take a couple of days off to rest his nagging quad.

What the Mets are getting out of him now, can measure up to the great time the Anderson Hernandez had at the plate last year. The Mets have got Carlos Gomez, Rickey Ledee, Jose Valentin and Damion Easley that could take turns in the outfield if they needed to and for a worst case scenario, Paul LoDuca spent a little time out there and has some gloves just in case.

My two cents opinion is to put Beltran on the bench for a couple of days, move Gomez over to center, put Valentin in left and keep Gotay on second in a more regular role.

So the lineup would resemble something along the lines of this:

Jose Reyes, Paul Lo Duca, David Wright, Carlos Delgado, Shawn Green, Jose Valentin, Ruben Gotay and Carlos Gomez.
