Let Beltran be someone else's fantasy problem

The 2009 season was a miserable one for the New York Mets and their fans, and, well, the 2010 season isn't off to such a great start, either.

Center fielder Carlos Beltran had surgery on his right knee Wednesday. The Mets aren't happy about that, implying the procedure was unnecessary. Beltran's agent, the inimitable Scott Boras, disagrees (of course he does). Whatever the case, this Boras quote scares me as a fantasy baseball owner:
    "The doctor said eight weeks, possibly, and a window to 12 weeks to resume baseball activities. With elite athletes, the timetable is sometimes shorter than the original prognosis."
