    On a positive note.....

    I thought Scutaro played well at SS, making two sparkling plays in the field.
    Beckett also swing the bat well given he usually stands there and takes three and sits down.
    Lee brought his A game, and I don't think it would have mattered what line-up we put out there.

    On another positive note, as I personally requested 1.5 months ago, we will soon acquire Carlos Beltran.  He will play RF, occasionally DH'ing, and of course bat 6th.

    The burning question:   

    What's left of talent in the farm system, who will Theo have to part with in order to get Carlos Beltran  ?
    He won't come cheap in terms of salary and talent.

    LOL...bright side...beckett swinging the bat well? That should really help down the stretch. Maybe he can pinch hit for crawful or varitick.

    Varitek has a higher OPS than Jeter.

    If we are taking on Beltran, as a rental, and the balance of his $18M Salary without the Mets having to take Drew or Cam in return: I would say 1 or 2  B level prospects. Other than a salary dump--the Mets are  only 9.5 games out--there's always a wildcard possibility--why trade Beltran with a .281, 11 HR's and 53 RBI.

    There likely will be a lot of interest in Beltran. The Sox can look to the farm in the next month--Navarro, Nava, Lin and Hassan--if they are looking for a RHanded bat. Certainly Reddick should be given a fultime shot @ RF the way he has been hitting.

    another positive note is something i noticed about beckett; or rather noticed was missing about beckett. about 25 pounds. i haven't seen him pitch since last year. i wonder where his professionalism was the last few years. he is so good he seemed ok, but he was not at his best carrying all that weight. but he's back now. so that's good. same with "not that fat" whathisname at dh. be in shape and good things happen.
