    Mets canít stay silent on Carlos Beltran

    In November, Beltran went out of his way to deny knowing the 2017 Astros ó his last season as a major league player ó were using technology to steal signs. He doubled down on that position during last monthís Winter Meetings. On Monday, MLB commissioner Robert Manfred distributed stern repercussions for cheating. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow and field manager A.J. Hinch were handed one-year suspensions. Astros owner Jim Crane took it one step further by firing Luhnow and Hinch. The Red Sox fired manager Alex Cora, another key instigator in the scandal, before MLB could finish its investigation on Cora and the 2018 Red Sox.Beltran is now the only name from Manfredís report that still holds a position on a coaching staff. He sidestepped punishment from MLB because Manfred decided he would not discipline Astros players. But, for those that still believe players should be disciplined for the trash can banging scheme that they created, the target for that punishment is Beltran ó the only Astros player named in the nine-page report.

    The Mets have remained mum on the subject since Monday, but they cannot remain passive much longer. Some questions begging to be answered include: Did he lie to the team the same way he lied to the public? Is the organization still on the same page as its new manager ó prepared to defend his integrity until the job he was hired to do speaks for itself in the regular season? Would Van Wagenen still describe Beltran as trustworthy?

    Perhaps the Mets are buying time and waiting for the storm to pass. If that is the case, they should be ready for a long battle with a strong position, positive or unfavorable, on their manager. The blizzard that will follow Beltranís every step is just beginning.

    Mets should move on from Beltran. NY media will just hound the guy and turn the coverage into a Jerry Springer show. .

    Baseball is the most corrupt sport going.

    Doped up players, Juiced up balls, Systemic electronic cheating.
