A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. I read the names and had to laugh. The dichotomy between these two clubs in New […]
The St. Louis Cardinals are going to the World Series after a 9-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers to take the best of seven series, four games to two. It will be the Cardinals’ fourth trip to the Fall Classic in the last ten years. Overall, this is the 19th National League Championship for the Cardinals, the most by any franchise in the National League. Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals stunned Clayton Kershaw with a four-run third inning, and […]
Carlos Beltran, who has become one of the most clutch players in postseason history (except for that one night at Shea), could be on the Yankees’ radar this winter, a move the former Met will strongly consider, sources tell Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. According to multiple sources, the Yankees could be in the market for an outfielder this winter as they look to add some pop to a lineup that finished […]
Some people live for the big game. Joe Montana saved his best efforts for the many NFC Championship Games and Super Bowls he won. Michael Jordan was excellent at sinking clutch shots and the spirits of opposing teams in his six NBA Finals victories. (I’m a Utah Jazz fan. I should know.) And then there’s one Carlos Ivan Beltran. Carlos Beltran has never been a player who has sought the spotlight. But come October, the […]
Last night, Carlos Beltran continued to cement his status as one of the greatest post season players of all time with yet another incredible performance. Having already delivered a two-run double to tie Game 1 of the NLCS at 2-2, the former Met would hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 13th inning to clinch a dramatic 3-2 win over the Dodgers for the Cardinals. Beltran also kept the game alive for the Cards […]
I read some scuttlebutt last night about the Philadelphia Phillies possibly honing in on free agent to be Carlos Beltran this winter. If every free-agent signee were able to guarantee a replication of the previous year’s performance, Beltran would be No. 1 on the Phillies’ list. In 600 plate appearances for the Cardinals in 2013, he hit .296/.339/.491 with 24 home runs. More important than Beltran’s overall numbers is the fact that he is a […]
Before I begin, let me preface this by saying that if you’re not a Daniel Murphy supporter, then in all likelihood you will not be a fan of this post. (And for the record, the title of this piece was suggested by my Gal For All Seasons, so I’m not alone in my appreciation for the Mets’ second baseman.) Now that we have that out of the way, let’s look back at the great second […]
DAVID WRIGHT, 3B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: As they always are, expectations were high for David Wright, especially after a strong 2012 season, one in which he hit .306 with 21 homers and 93 RBI. And, those were numbers compiled with little protection in the line-up, at least in the first half of the season. They were also lofty because he signed a monster eight-year, $138-million deal through 2020 and was named team captain. Whenever a player […]
Carlos Beltran told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he wouldn’t be against a return to the Mets when he becomes a free agent this offseason. “Maybe I’ll see you, maybe I won’t,” Beltran said laughing when asked about a return to the Mets. “I’m going to listen to everybody and we’ll see what happens.” According to sources, Beltran spoke with Mets COO Jeff Wilpon at the All-Star Game in July, and the two […]
