Hey, Gary Apple: Carlos Beltran Didn’t Play for the Mets in 2001!

By Nicholas Stix

The Mets beat the Phillies 9-4 tonight, behind 43-year-old Bartolo Colon, who got his 12th win (12-7) this season, along with two hits. The Amazins (65-63) got four home runs, two by Asdrubal Cabrera, one by Jose Reyes, and a grand slam by Wilmer Flores.

On SNY’s postgame show, Gary Apple just reported that Cabrera, who hit dingers from both sides of the plate, was the first met to do that “since Carlos Beltran in 2001.”

Sorry, Gary. Carlos Beltran didn’t come to the Mets until 2005.

How does Colon do it?Must be his conditioning coach at Taco Bell(extra cheese on EVERYTHING),that's the secret.
I've wagered a couple times against him,lost,and learned my lesson.I still can't believe opposing batters don't pound him.
