When the Mets traded Carlos Beltran to the Giants before the non-waiver trade deadline last season, they were waving goodbye to the old and going with the new. By that point, Beltran had been supplanted in center and had become a right fielder, a position the Mets believed they had covered with the young, powerful Lucas Duda.

This season, Beltran has gotten off to a hot start with the Cardinals and Duda has been less than lukewarm in Flushing:

  Carlos Beltran Lucas Duda
Average .294 .257
On-base percentage .394 .346
Slugging percentage .594 .413
Home runs 15 7
RBIs 42 20
Runs 32 26
