I'm skeptical. I'll believe it during the press conference and when Michael Kay is trying to spin it into "how this was a horrible move". :-D

The Astros knew it was a gamble when they got into this situation. They figured they would make him feel welcomed and then hopefully he'd give them a hometown discount. It's nothing against the Astros. If they resign Beltran then great for them but I can't feel sorry for them the way I do K.C. You're right K.C. never really tried to sign Beltran and they are the ones who traded him away but we all know that's because they can't afford to pay Beltran $17M/Year or whatever he ends up getting. :-)

The Astros don't have the bucks that the Mets have. The offer they made for Beltran was a TON of money for them. There's only so far they can go and not break the bank.

If you really want to show a pic that "summarizes" Beltran, you should have posted the pic of him in the NLCS hitting that home run of Tavares from about .000000000000001 inches above the ground.

dont get me started on Renteria!!! you know what made me mad about that guy was that at his press conference he said that he wanted to goto a winning team, and one that had a rich history. Not sure but i think the cards are over 100 years old? and not sure but i thought the cards won the most games in 2004? what a joke. why couldnt he just have said it was the money? Boston overpayed.

not summarize beltran
jsut showing a picture of him for those who dont know what he looks like
i thought a picture might help people understand who he is and what hes all about
it gives them a better understanding of the impact of this possible signing
i will be doing this more often if i have the time

Boston is older, with a richer history than St. Louis. Plus they just dominated the Cards in four games (IE the winning team). It's more than just the money.

I really doubt that. He is not worth 11 million a season, which is why he took the offer.[/quote]
