NOT HOW IT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED
Thank you, Adrian Beltre, for being the consummate professional in your time with the Texas Rangers. See you in Cooperstown.
However, I will never forgive Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz for choking and thereby robbing a great and deserving player out of his World Series championship.
With two outs and two strikes, a simple, routine throw sailing over first base into the stands and a routine flyball sailing over an outfielder’s head prevented a true legend from properly capping his career.
Thanks for the memories, Beltre.
