Beltran Leaves Game, Twitter Reacts

Carlos Beltran left this evening's game in the second inning after fouling a Tim Hudson pitch off of his shin. After being evalutated at the plate, he completed his at bat and was removed from the game. In a devastating turn of events, this forced Willie Harris into the game as the outfielders were shuffled around to plug the hole.

As with all things Beltran, this event drew an uneven response on Twitter, ranging from the once witty but now poorly aging Selfish Beltran joke to genuine concern about how it would effect the team.

And, then, finally, we all received a prognosis.
