Angel Pagan arrived at Mets camp on Friday – and the inevitable questions about who’s playing centerfield – Pagan or Carlos Beltran – began. The two are close friends and Pagan was asked whether it’s an awkward situation or somehow easier because of their relationship.
Manager Terry Collins was asked when he feels he has to make a determination as to whether Pagan or Beltran will play centerfield.
Collins did say that he feels he owes it to Beltran to give him every opportunity to retain his position – and also the one he prefers to play.
Pagan will also follow Jose Reyes in the batting order, and talked about getting some input from a fellow teammate who was a pretty dynamic # 2 hitter most of his career.
Beltran may possibly arrive on Saturday, so the debate will continue.
