Carlos Beltran, one of the best hitters in New York Mets history, did not have a happy exit from the team. He still displeased that team executives said that he went for knee surgery in 2010 without their blessing, but Beltran told New York Post columnist Joel Sherman that he’s “turned the page.”
“I don’t know what they gained from what they did to me,” Beltran told Sherman. “But I know what I gained. It made me a stronger person. Look, if you are a bad guy, you are a bad guy everywhere and the people in the game know it. The people who have played with me know that is not true.”
