NOT HOW IT SHOULD HAVE HAP­PENED

Star-Telegram - - Opinion -

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.
