It's fitting that Beltran earned his lone World Series ring in such personally anti-climactic fashion-he gave Houston -0.6 WAR in the regular season and went hitless in three World Series at-bats-because the story of his career is one that has always been somewhat at odds with itself.
Beltran finishes his career after winning his first World Series title.
Besides being named an All-Star 9 times, most recently in 2016, and the 1999 AL Rookie of the Year, he won 3 Gold Glove and 2 Silver Slugger awards.
At the mention of one high profile job that remains open - that which Joe Girardi recently vacated, not of his own volition - Beltran was cagey about the possibility of taking his talents back to New York. It's quite the accomplishment, among a career of sparkling superlatives. Interim coach Randy Shannon said Monday that Feleipe Franks will be the team's starter against UAB, regaining his spot on the depth chart following an injury to Malik Zaire. Eddie Lack played the final 40 minutes, stopping 13 of 15 shots for his first win with the Flames. He had come a long way and I'm positive that he didn't want squander this unique opportunity to ensure that he's financially set for life. Boone currently is an ESPN analyst and has been employed there for 12 years. He then batted.231 with 14 homers and 51 RBIs for Houston. Beltran played for eight different teams over his twenty years, two stints with the Astros.
Bellinger received all 30 first-place votes in the voting conducted by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, giving the Dodgers the top NL rookie honor for a major league-best 18th time.
He had one of the great postseason runs of all time in batting.435 for the Astros in 2004. Assessing defense is not an exact science, but we appreciate defense a lot more now than we have in the past. It's difficult to capture Beltran's career in a single image or smash it into some archetypal shape or other, but that's a feature, not a bug.
After years of planning, dealing and getting millions in public financing approved, the Oakland Raiders broke ground Monday night on their new 65,000-seat, domed stadium in Las Vegas. The Cardinals lost in six games to the Boston Red Sox.
Enjoy retirement, Carlos. We can't wait to see what you'll do next.
We'll have to see about that but until then, thank you Carlos for all that you've done. Regardless, he will be a member of the Royals Hall of Fame in short order as one of the greatest outfielders in franchise history. He signed that winter with the New York Mets.
Despite that, Beltran's veteran presence and his work with Houston's younger players including Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and Marwin Gonzalez proved invaluable for the Astros. The pursuit may just be a decoy to push the price up for him though according to Mike Axisa of River Avenue Blues.
