There is no smoldering volcano within Carlos Beltran. What you see is what you get.
Beltran is a very good player, but he is not a dynamic, fiery personality. That is not his make-up and the Mets knew that when they signed him.
If you’re expecting a Pete Rose type, or a guy like David Ortiz or Derek Jeter, keep waiting. Beltran is NOT soft as he plays hurt, but he isn’t the emotional heart of this team and never will be.
