New York Post SPORTS Carlos Beltran just wants one measly ring with Yankees By Mr October February 26, 2014 | 2:18Beltran takes his first hacks of the spring at the Yankees facility. Photo: AP TAMPA — Carlos Beltran finally took the field as a Yankee Monday, going through batting practice and some light drills at the team’s minor league complex on a perfect Florida morning. But after playing in New York for nearly seven seasons in the prime of his career and witnessing the Yankees’ $503 million offseason spending spree, Beltran knows better than most that regardless of how things look the rest of the year, his legacy will be remembered by what happens in October. “Of course we have to win,” Beltran said after his first workout. “I don’t know how far we will go, [but] at least we have to do something positive and something better than they did last year.” Even while he was helping the Cardinals to a National League pennant, Beltran could see the Yankees’ performance in 2013 was unacceptab ...
SPORTS: Kansas City Royals acquire Norichika Aoki from Milwaukee Brewers for pitcher Will Smith Outfielder, who won three batting titles in Japan, led NL in singles this past season By *** Kaegel MLB.com KANSAS CITY -- The Royals added to their outfield on Thursday. No, not with Carlos Beltran. Norichika Aoki, who had been the Milwaukee right fielder, was obtained from the Brewers in exchange for left-handed pitcher Will Smith. Aoki, 31, a left-handed hitter from Japan, batted .286 last season primarily as the Brewers' leadoff man -- a spot held most of the season for the Royals by Alex Gordon. Aoki had eight Home Runs, 37 RBIs and 20 stolen bases in 32 attempts. His on-base percentage was .356. He ranked second in the Major Leagues with 40 infield hits, while he led the National League in singles (140), tied for seventh in multihit games (50), seventh in times reaching base (237) and tied for 10th in hits (171). Aoki hit .339 (60-for-181) against left-handed pitching, the top average by a left-handed hi ...
Renck: You won't believe who is being criticized for Home Run Derby Posted: 07/09/2013 12:01:00 AM MDT By Troy E. Renck The Denver Post — There's a debate about his participation. Some openly rooted for his omission. He has angered fans in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Phoenix and St. Louis, who firmly believe there are more deserving candidates. Yasiel Puig? Try Michael Cuddyer. The Rockies outfielder was selected by childhood friend David Wright to participate for the National League in the Home Run Derby on Monday. He will join teammate Carlos Gonzalez, if the outfielder's sprained finger heals. CarGo was an easy selection. He leads the NL in Home Runs with 24. Cuddyer has been one of baseball's best outfielders, batting .337 with a .392 on-base percentage and a season-best 27-game hitting streak. He has only 15 Home Runs and, of course, there's the rub. He was taken ahead of Pedro Alvarez, Domonic Brown, Joey Votto, Paul Goldschmidt and Carlos Beltran. Wright knew he was going to receive ...

The All-Star rosters have been announced... The St Louis Cardinals lead the National League with 5 All-Star selections... 2 starters (Yadier Molina & Carlos Beltran), 1 Pitcher (Adam Wainwright), and 2 Reserves (Matt Carpenter & Allen Craig). Congratulations to those 5 and be sure to check out my blog with some info on who got snubbed that maybe shouldn't have. Enjoy!
The Official Braves Country Beat All-Star Vote: American League: C-Joe Mauer (Twins) 1B-Chris Davis (Orioles) 2B-Robinson Cano (Yankees) 3B-Miguel Cabrera (Tigers) SS-Elvis Andrus (Rangers) OF-Nelson Cruz (Rangers) OF-Mike Trout (Angels) OF-Adam Jones (Orioles) DH-David Ortiz (Red Sox) National League: C-Evan Gattis (Braves) *Write In 1B-Freddie Freeman (Braves) 2B-Brandon Phillips (Reds) 3B-David Wright (Mets) SS-Everth Cabrera (Padres) OF-Carlos Gonzalez (Rockies) OF-Justin Upton (Braves) OF-Carlos Beltran (Cardinals) *You can cast your votes for the MLB All-Star Game up to 25 times by visiting either mlb.com or atlantabraves.com. Evan Gattis, in my opinion, is the most deserving catcher. Unfortunately since the Braves can only nominate 1 Catcher for the ballot, they obviously went with Brian McCann. So if you want to vote for Gattis, you must enter his name in the Write In section of the vote.
The MLB All-Star Game is less than half a month away, and sometimes choosing starters and reserves can be pretty tough for both leagues. Joey has put together a team of 34 All-Stars from the National League by using a few specific rules: -The fan voted leaders are assumed to keep their spots or be a part of the game regardless -Every team must have at least one representative -Thirteen pitchers and twenty-one position players are allowed to be part of the team Starting Position Players: C- Buster Posey (SF) 1B- Joey Votto (CIN) 2B- Brandon Phillips (CIN) 3B- Pablo Sandoval (SF) SS- Troy Tulowitzki (COL) OF- Justin Upton (ATL) OF- Bryce Harper (WAS) OF- Carlos Beltran (STL) *Giants and Red both have two starters a piece already, and will most likely have more players in the game since both are over .500. Back-Up Players: C- Yadier Molina (STL) C- Evan Gattis (ATL) 1B- Paul Goldshmidt (ARI) 1B- Anthony Rizzo (CHI) 2B- Jedd Gyorko (SD) 2B/3B- Matt Carpenter (STL) 3B- David Wright (NYM) SS- Jean Segura (MIL ...

For my Cardinal Fans: Our Father, who art in St. Louis, Baseball be thy game...thy will be done, the National League Championship will be won, on the field, as well as in the bullpen! Give us this day our bat and glove, and forgive us our errors as we forgive those who home-run against us. Lead us not into defeat, but please help us beat the San Francisco Giants. In the name of the fans, David Freese, Carlos Beltran and the Cardinal Team, Amen...GO CARDINALS!!!
Bruce Bochy, Carlos Beltran, and David Freese talk about Sunday night's game. The Cardinals beat the Giants 6-4 to lead the playoff series 1-0.
The Cardinals ultimately endured because of the same band of precocious power arms that extricated them against the Washington Nationals -- and offensive power from Carlos Beltran and David Freese.
I sure don't miss this guy! Former Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett thought he had an easy single when he lined a ball to right field in the third inning of the Dodgers' game Thursday against the Cardinals in Los Angeles. The right fielder had other plans. Carlos Beltran took a few steps to his right to make the play and threw a strike to first base to beat Beckett by a step at first base. Dodgers famed announcer Vin Scully's reaction? "Haven't seen that in a long, long time." The Dodgers lost the game, 2-1, and fell two games behind the Cardinals for the second wild-card berth in the National League. Beckett pitched 5 1/3 innings, giving up one run on seven hits, with two walks and six strikeouts, but got no decision in the loss. In his four starts as a Dodger, the former Red Sox righty has a 3.38 ERA.
wishes he could watch tonight's Major League Baseball Home Run Derby tonight. Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran will be one of the hitters representing the National League. But I will be here doing prep work for class instead. Hopefully I will get to see the end of it tonight. Who is watching it? Back in the early 1990s when the contest started, it used to be the talk around sports fans. Is there ANY chance that baseball will become as popular among youth as football, basketball, track or the "X Games" sports in the 21st century. My odds say no, but I hope so. Other than the RBI leagues that promote the game with kids in little league cities, what can get baseball back on top?
this is my story...and I'm stickin' to it: It took over 50 seasons and more than 8,000 games but Johan Santana finally delivered the first no-hitter in New York Mets history in an 8-0 blanking of the St. Louis Cardinals Friday night at Citi Field. Santana was masterful in fanning eight batters while allowing five walks for his first no-hitter. Santana tossed a career-high 134 pitches and got a few breaks along the way, including a tremendous Mike Baxter catch in the outfield in which he suffered an apparent shoulder injury. Carlos Beltran also appeared to hit the chalk with a drive down the left field line but it was incorrectly ruled a foul ball for the ex-Met. It was still no cheapie for the superb Santana, as the no-no came against the defending World Series champions and the top offense in the National League. The normally light-hitting Mets displayed the fireworks Friday, with David Murphy collecting a pair of run scoring hits and Lucas Duda blasting a three-run homer in the sixth as New York pulled ...
Carlos Beltran had been traded twice by long-term employers, the Royals and Mets, and knew the relatively low-budget Astros could not afford him after he nearly carried them to a National League pennant in 2004. Thus,...
So Albatross Pujols finally hit his 2nd Home Run in his 37th game. The Cardinals' Matt Carpenter has 3 in 27 games. Pujols replacement, Carlos Beltran? He only leads the National League with 13 homers...
For leading the National League in a host of offensive categories last week, Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran was named the league's Player of the Week on Monday.
Your current National League Home Run leader is now Carlos Beltran, who just belted his 13th of the year.
