This came to me as I watch Carlos Beltran finish a horrible evening. On the way to Yankee Stadium I listened to talk radio, which is usually a mistake. Anyway, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing about Beltran.
The guy doesn’t care. He’s too soft. He loafs.
This came from the fans, who honestly I thought would know better if they’ve been paying attention. It also came from the radio hosts who couldn’t find Shea with a map.
Beltran is in a miserable slump, but he’s also playing on a strained left quad. The guy should be on the DL. “Rest is the only thing that will take care of it, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to rest.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
For an explanation of BeltranÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lack of power recently, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the quad. The left leg is BeltranÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s push-off leg when batting left-handed, which is how he would generate his power.
In my line of thinking, anybody who plays hurt isn’t soft.
