Beltran turns 200

Carlos Beltran hit his 200th career homer and scored three of the Mets' 12 runs in Saturday's victory over the Phillies.

The homer was his 38th, matching his career high established in 2004, and it gave him 108 RBI, which equals his previous best from his rookie season in 1999. David Wright's recent slump has left little doubt about who will be the Mets' most significant MVP candidate. If Beltran just keeps doing what he's doing, he should have a strong case for the hardware.
