Better Late than Never Applesauce - Beltran rehab, Francoeur green light, Mets and Beimel

Meet the Mets

I'll start with some good news this afternoon. Carlos Beltran's rehab is going fine and hopes to be back by May

And I'll even throw in some laughs. I really have no idea when these Wilpon video blog things started, but I hope he keeps them up.

But, there's always something to complain about. How about how the opening day lineup looks right now? Or the fact that Jeff Francoeur has been given a green light to steal bases

Then there's also just the random stuff. Like Joe Beimel is still on the Met radar. And Johan Santana's slider may not be as effective as it used to be.

Or we could just do some psychoanalysis on Big Pelf.

Around MLB

I got worried when I saw Vin Scully was hospitalized (it's the only time I watch the away broadcast on MLB.TV for Met games), but he will be fine after he bumped his head.

Stephen Strasburg's college coach Tony Gwynn sat down with Sirius/XM's Inside Pitch to talk about baseball's top pitching prospect.

Adrian Gonzalez hinted that he would be willing to take deferred money to stay in San Diego.

Paul Lo Duca may not be done in the majors.

Aroldis Chapman is quickly becoming a Cincinnati legend.
