Nights like this were the reason the New York Mets reached deeply into their pockets over the last few winters and brought free-agent talents like Tom Glavine, Carlos Beltran and Billy Wagner to town. Nights like this, with bright lights, high stakes and roaring fans. Glavine, Beltran and Wagner delivered impressive performances as the Mets opened the National League Championship Series with a 2-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in front of 56,311 last night at Shea Stadium.

Major League Baseball has suspended Pirates lefty Jonathan Sanchez for six games and fined him an undisclosed amount for beaning the Cardinals' Allen Craig in Friday's 9-1 loss. Sanchez has appealed the suspension, but maybe the Bucs should consider keeping him off the mound. He has allowed 16 runs on 21 hits and five walks in just 111/3 innings this season. And on Friday, he didn't get a single out, and served up back-to-back homers to Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran, and a single to Matt Holliday before he threw at Craig's head.

J.C. Romero pitched his first two innings of the spring yesterday. Now he will head off and join arms with a number of New York Mets on Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. "I'm going to go have some fun and put this all behind me for a minute or two," Romero said. "When I come back, spring training will be a lot shorter. " Romero is still bitter that he must serve a 50-game suspension at the start of the regular season because he tested positive for a banned substance last summer.

A month's work of trades and free-agent negotiations were finally completed yesterday, when Randy Johnson, Carlos Beltran, Shawn Green, Derek Lowe, Javier Vazquez and Juan Gon-zalez found new homes. Dioner Navarro, a 20-year-old catcher with seven major league at-bats, even got traded twice. There was a news conference doubleheader in New York. In the morning at Shea Stadium, the Mets announced their $119 million, 7-year contract with centerfielder Carlos Beltran. They already have added three-time Cy Young Award winner Pedro Martinez and might try to sign slugger Carlos Delgado.

Mark Teixeira could be the Atlanta Braves' new cleanup hitter as early as tonight. Meanwhile, the NL East-leading Mets filled a big hole at second base, acquiring three-time All-Star Luis Castillo from Minnesota for a pair of prospects. The Braves reached an agreement yesterday to send rookie catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and three minor leaguers to Texas for the powerful, switch-hitting Teixeira. The official announcement of the deal is expected to come today. The negotiations were confirmed by people familiar with the deal who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it wasn't finalized.

Phillies closer Billy Wagner said the game-tying home run he served up in the ninth inning Thursday had nothing to do with his being tired from pitching earlier in the day. "I felt better in the second game than I did the first," he said. With the Phils holding a 4-3 lead in the nightcap of the day-night doubleheader, Wagner allowed a solo homer to Detroit's Brandon Inge with one out in the ninth. "I felt fine," said Wagner, who was on the disabled list from May 8 to June 8 with a strained left groin.

HIS TEAM HASN'T taken any good swings lately, so Mets owner Fred Wilpon decided to take some of his own. Wilpon lashed out at several Mets players in a interview with the New Yorker that mainly focused on his getting snared in his friend Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, Wilpon, speaking about Jose Reyes, said: "He thinks he's going to get Carl Crawford money . . . He's had everything wrong with him . . . He won't get it. " The shortstop...

AROUNDTHEBASES   First Base Perhaps the most interesting development this summer is teams' willingness to float some of their cheap, young, and controllable talent on the trade market. The Rays are doing it with James Shields , Colorado with Ubaldo Jimenez , and Houston with Hunter Pence . They may not intend to trade them, but shouldn't these franchises take better care of their best talent?   Second Base Something doesn't seem right about this: Japan won the first two World Baseball Classics and is now threatening a boycott of the 2013 event.

As the non-waiver deadline passed at 4 p.m. Sunday, several contenders made trades, with the Atlanta Braves trying to stay in the NL East race by picking up centerfielder Michael Bourn from salary-dumping Houston. Boston added a starting pitcher and St. Louis and Pittsburgh picked up hitters. Bourn, who is hitting .303 and leads the majors with 39 stolen bases, is expected to give the Braves their first true leadoff hitter since Rafael Furcal left after the 2005 season.

The conversation has become more lopsided than a first-round women's NCAA tournament game between UConn and whatever poor 16th seed the Huskies happen to draw that year. It's no longer about whether the Phillies should trade Cole Hamels. It's all about when they should trade him, where they should trade him and how much they should get in return. The little hope the Phillies seemed to have when spring training opened six weeks ago dwindled to none as the Grapefruit League games progressed.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Brendan Ryan didn't get a long look at Aaron Nola from the batter's box, quickly ripping a double to right in his only at-bat against the Phillies' prospect in the third inning of yesterday's game. But he had a pretty good vantage point when Nola got into a groove against a New York Yankees lineup loaded with its regulars, including five former All-Stars. Ryan, a veteran of eight big-league seasons, stood on third base when Nola painted the lower outside corner of the strike zone with a 94-mph fastball to get Chase Headley to stare at a called third strike.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - This was 10 days before Christmas 2010, and Cliff Lee had ruined the New York Mets' annual holiday party. Students from six elementary schools had gathered on the Citi Field concourse to see David Wright dress up as Santa Claus and hand out presents, and Wright's teammates milled around and patted the kids' heads and signed autographs. But among the players, the season's joyful spirit was cut with dread. The day before, Lee had signed a five-year, $120 million contract with the Phillies, and every player on the Mets' roster knew what was coming in 2011.

CINCINNATI - With the team in free-fall mode and the trade deadline in the not-so-distant future, several veteran Phillies players will almost certainly be the subjects of a flurry of rumors over the next 8 weeks. A fan base eager for change will probably welcome those rumors, hoping they'll advance beyond the rumor stage. But a lesson in trading established, proven veteran talent for prospects presented itself on the daily baseball transactions report yesterday afternoon. Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster.

CLOSER TO the end of his long career than the start, Carlos Beltran finally got to put on the uniform of his favorite childhood team. The eight-time All-Star was introduced at a Yankee Stadium news conference yesterday after signing a 3-year deal worth $45 million that was agreed to 2 weeks ago but made official on Thursday. Sporting his No. 36 jersey and joined by his two daughters and his wife, Beltran talked about how much he admired the Yankees while growing up in Puerto Rico, and how close he came to joining them in 2005.

THREE YEARS AGO, Ruben Amaro Jr. could barely walk out of his house to fetch the mail or sneak out of a hotel for a cup of coffee without hearing the same question over and over and over. Why did you trade Cliff Lee? The back-and-forth with the fans back then, however, was mostly in good fun. The Phillies were fresh off back-to-back World Series appearances and even though they had traded Lee, the Phillies did add Roy Halladay, arguably the best pitcher in the game. Three years later, the Phillies are not coming off consecutive World Series appearances.

THE FREE-AGENT season is just about 3 weeks old, and, although the biggest outfield names available are still unsigned - including Shin-Soo Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury, Curtis Granderson and Carlos Beltran - some second- or third-level outfielders have come off the market. The Phillies were one of the first teams to go that route, signing Marlon Byrd. The Indians scooped up David Murphy earlier this week, and the Mets signed Chris Young yesterday afternoon. From the time the Byrd deal was first reported two Tuesdays ago, the reaction at the J.W. Marriott in Orlando, the site of the general managers meetings, was one of shock and awe. The shared opinion: That was certainly a lot of money to give a soon-to-be 37-year-old outfielder who was out of affiliated baseball this time a year ago. Byrd certainly had a productive, bounce-back year with the Mets and Pirates last season.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The man overseeing one of baseball's largest payrolls used the phrase "best bang for the buck" when discussing his aggressive pursuit of Marlon Byrd, a midlevel outfielder in a market teeming with talent. There is Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo, Nelson Cruz, Carlos Beltran and Curtis Granderson. All will command massive sums of money. All are flawed, sure. But all would upgrade the Phillies' current outfield. And all are likely headed elsewhere with nothing but cursory interest from the Phillies before they pounced on Byrd, a 36-year-old one year removed from baseball purgatory.

ORLANDO, Fla. - In the 3 years since Jayson Werth left South Philly for Washington, the Phillies have failed to find a replacement in the form of a righthanded-hitting rightfielder. John Mayberry Jr. has failed in multiple auditions. Hunter Pence was traded away a year after he was acquired in a trade. Delmon Young was . . . Delmon Young. In his latest attempt to solve the rightfield puzzle, Amaro turned to a name from the Phillies' past yesterday morning. Despite staring at a free-agent market flush with All-Star outfield bats, the Phillies signed Marlon Byrd to a 2-year, $16 million contract.

ONE OF THE more intriguing story lines of the upcoming offseason will be the machinations of that little ol' ballclub on Roosevelt Boulevard in Queens. Sandy Alderson has spent the last 3 years covering himself in sprocket grease and sawdust, clearcutting the Mets' roster to engender new growth. Now he has plenty of money to spend, and a boss who sounds a bit antsy to return to the days when the franchise was a significant part of the national conversation. "I want to get out of the hope business," Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said recently, according to the New York Post.
