Mets rely on . . . hope?

NEW YORK -- The Mets say they don't know when Carlos Beltran will be back. They say they don't know when Jose Reyes will be back.

They have some idea when Carlos Delgado will be back, but they say he likely won't make it back before mid-August, and in any case shouldn't be back before Beltran and Delgado.

Oh, and the Mets say that we really shouldn't expect any problem-solving trades anytime soon.

So here's what the Mets have to offer: hope.

"We're battling," general manager Omar Minaya said. "We hope as guys get back, we're in contention."

He never said how he expects that to happen.

As for manager Jerry Manuel, at least he has stopped saying publicly that his remaining players aren't good enough (they're not, but it doesn't really help when a manager says they're not).

"We might have to play good with this group for a longer time than we anticipated," Manuel said. "That's my responsibility. I've got to find a way for this group to mesh and play good baseball."

He's hoping.

Hey, as Tug McGraw said.. Ya Gotta Believe.  

It's extremely frustrating to watch injuries doom the team like this, but it's part of the game
