Carlos Beltran talked Jon Niese into getting a nose job

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York has an “after” picture of Mets left-hander Jon Niese, who got a nose job during the offseason at former teammate Carlos Beltran’s urging. Seriously.

Beltran apparently even offered to pay for the operation, but then he was traded to the Giants in July. Niese had the surgery anyway and now says the rhinoplasty (that’s the official name, amusingly) has helped with his breathing.

As someone with a big schnoz the idea of a 25-year-old professional athlete getting a nose job seems weird to me, but then again I’m not constantly on television and getting my picture taken by people at my job.

More worrisome for Mets fans? Niese was pretty decent (4.39 career ERA) with the old nose, so what happens if he goes the way of Jennifer Grey with the new nose?

“Nobody puts Niese-y in a corner!”
