Summing up the Beltran coverage

There certainly has been plenty to absorb over the last 30 hours, from the time news of the Carlos Beltran trade first broke to Beltran’s press conference in Philadelphia, a mere hour ago. To make it easier for all of you out there in cyberspace, below is a catalog of the coverage on MLB.com.

It began Wednesday afternoon with this news story,  which received continual updates throughout the day. The final tweak came early Thursday afternoon, when the Mets and Giants announced the deal and made it official. At that point, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson addressed the deal on a conference call, noting that his team is probably done trading prior to this weekend’s deadline.

I later caught up to prospect Zack Wheeler, the centerpiece of the deal, who called the trade “eye-opening” from his perspective.

In between, there were emotional victories for the Mets on Wednesday and Thursday. MLB.com’s Giants beat writer, Chris Haft, also weighed in on the trade from a San Francisco perspective.

In all, an eventful day and a half in the Queen City, and there was more from Philadelphia. Late Thursday, the Giants welcomed Beltran to the team, before beating the Phillies in his debut.
