Beltran and Wright Take a Poop

Man I hope they do not detail every time these two go to the gym together or do anything together for that matter. It was a good story once, and I know this is the first time they actually went hence the story, but after today is another deal.

"It was a great full-body workout," Wright said. "It was outstanding. Every action and exercise had a purpose and was related to something you do on the field. We worked on balance, agility, quickness and explosiveness. You can tell there was a lot of baseball thought put behind it."

Beltran said the hour-long workout is something that he plans on doing every day -- circumstances permitting -- with his personal trainer and Wright and anyone else who wants to join in.

"It was good," Beltran said. "You sweat more than when you're using weights. We did a real good job. It was good for me and good for him. We'll do that every day as long as it's not an inconvenience."


If Beltran is looking for a workaholic to go to the gym after practice everyday, he's found his man. Wright is one of the most tireless workers on the team without a doubt and he loves to soak up everything everyone tells him. It's hard not to think Wright will have a big, big season.

The Post goes over how dangerous the Mets will be on the basepaths this season.

Beltran, whose personal goal for the season is 40, said Reyes can easily steal 50 if he's healthy.

I love the fact the Beltran is all over Wright and Reyes like brown on rice (for all you low-carb people...). The guy is overwhelmingly supportive of these two and sees all the success and world for these two skilled youngsters. Before I used to say the Mets overpaid by a bit to get him, but now I do not think so. Vlad got less money, but he's quiet and I've not read much about him doing things like this. Beltran is shaping up to be worth every dime he got from the Mets. Carlos is the franchise player they were looking for and he is doing all the right things and then some so far. Life is good as a Met fan right now with Beltran, Wright and Reyes together for hopefully at least the next seven years.

  • Cammie Speaks.

  • Benson's started with the Pirates in 1999 and was with them until he was traded on July 30th last season. He was 328 and 418 in his tenure with the Pirates and he is sick of losing. This 2005 Mets team will be the first MLB club he is on that finishes over .500 when they accomplish that feat this season (and they will...).

    "There's a lot of pressure with a small-market team [Pittsburgh] when you're drafted and they want to turn things around. I feel great and confident now and that will dictate my performance in games. There's no pressure, because I know when I'm healthy, I can perform with the best in the league."

  • Dougie Fresh makes his mark.

    "He came up to me and asked, 'When you're off on your throws, where are you normally off?'" Wright said. "I looked at him like, 'Wow.' Nobody has ever asked me that. He goes, 'I just want to know so if you want me to give a target, would it help if I give a target over here, inside or outside.'"

    Awesome.

  • More ink on how Strickland should be ready for the bullpen by opening day, but the question for me is how hard is he throwing? He used to get the ball into the mid-90's and if he can regain the velocity, the Mets could have two reliable, proven set-up men in this bullpen.

  • Tim Hudson and the Braves are moving closer to deal.

    A former 20-game winner for Oakland, Hudson likely would get a three-year deal worth more than $11 million annually, plus at least two vesting option years tied to innings pitched, a source familiar with negotiations said.

    The famous source familiar with negotiations. What would we do without them?

    Hello everyone!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
