Carlos Beltran: Mets Fans Should Move On From 2006 NLCS

When asked at a New York charity event whether he was worried that Mets fans would feel betrayed that he signed with the team that knocked them out of the 2006 NLCS, Carlos Beltran said that Mets fans should just move on, according to the New York Daily News.

“Actually, I’m not thinking about the fans, I’m thinking about myself,” Beltran said, according to the Daily News. “I just want to have the opportunity to be in the playoffs. What happened in 2006, you have to turn the page. That’s over. We can’t bring 2006 back to 2012. It has been six years. If they want to continue to think about that moment, then that’s their problem. Like I said, I have turned the page. I have really moved on.”

The Mets, who were heavy favorites, fell to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games in the 2006 NLCS. Beltran famously struck out to end the series in the bottom of the ninth at Shea Stadium.

Despite boasting a talented young team at the time, the Mets imploded in back-to-back seasons in 2007 and 2008, failing to make the playoffs despite strong first halves. The team has not been to the playoffs since.
