On Thursday, Carlos Beltran will return to the Mets lineup, batting cleanup and playing centerfield. This will also mark the return of my "Ask the Carlos" bobblehead watching the game.
In 2005 the Mets had a Carlos Beltran bobblehead giveaway. In 2006 I decided to have him around while watching some games. I got into the habit of asking random yes-or-no questions and it seemed to get every answer correct. It predicted correctly things such as the Mets pitcher getting out of a jam, or even David Wright hitting a home run. I thought it was pretty amazing at the time.
Thursday will show if Ask The Carlos still has his old magic. Hopefully both Ask The Carlos and the player he's modeled after can perform the way they did in 2006.
Let's Go Mets!
