The Bel-train Has Left the Station
July 27th, 2011 by slangon

So the Beltran Watch is over. He’s gone. From what I hear, the kid they got for him, Zach Wheeler, is supposed to be pretty good, so I guess that’s cool.

Personally, I’m a bit bummed by the whole thing. I mean, using my head I completely understand why the trade was made. Using my heart though, it kills me to know that a player that I’ve admired for such a long time and rooted for so much will be doing his best to try and help a team other than the Mets win. It’s a strange feeling.

I guess all I can do is say thank you Carlos for all those years of great baseball and good luck with your new team. I for one will remember you for more than that called third strike.
