Victor Zambrano

According to Ken Davidoff of Newsday, the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan gave RHP Victor Zambrano’s elbow a clean bill of health – his ankle is another story. The Hospital believes that Zambrano twisted his ankle during his first start as a Met, which led to overcompensation, and pain, in his elbow.

“He is completely healed,” Zambrano’s agent, Peter Greenberg, told Davidoff.

 

 

Carlos Beltran

“The meeting with Steinbrenner was very good,” OF Carlos Beltran told Primera Hora, a newspaper in Puerto Rico, over the weekend.  “He is a professional person, super educated.  The Yankees have shown that they are champions and the owner is going to do everything possible to win.

“[The Mets] entered and they are being aggressive,” Beltran added.  “To this point, they have not made an offer. I believe that we will have a meeting very soon.”

The Associated Press reports that a meeting between Beltran and the Mets will “probably” take place the week of Jan. 3.

 

 

Trades
Jon Heyman of Newsday writes that the Mets asked about Rockies 1B Todd Helton and Reds 1B Sean Casey.  However, the Rockies wanted SS Jose Reyes or 3B David Wright, and Casey was not available.

MetsBlog Activist
Send an email to faneditorials@metsblog.com containing a well-written pitch to OF Carlos Beltran, stating why you feel he should come to the Mets. Maybe it’s because he would enjoy the nightlife, maybe you’ll take him to a strip club, maybe you think he’d have much to offer the New York community, maybe you simply believe he can be the perfect leader for a group of young up-and-coming talent in the world’s biggest city. 

Keep your statement pithy, well-researched, sincere and less than 500 words.

We will accept submissions through the weekend. If we receieve a comparable amount, we’ll print each, have it bound, and send it to the attention of the team’s management and media department and the office of Scott Boras. We will, of course, post each submission at a new MetsBlog site, BeltranToTheMets.com, as well. 

Good luck.
