Found October 24, 2013 on Sports Injury Alert:
Carlos Beltran is back on the Cardinal’s Line up card for tonight’s game. After pulling a David Ortiz grand slam back over the right field wall,  Carlos Beltran slammed up against the low lightly padded fence in Fenway and had to leave the game. He was taken to the hospital and a CT scan came back negative. Speculations as to what the Cardinal’s would do to fill the void left by Beltran have been flying and there is still question as to whether or not he will be able to perform at full capacity. Beltran reportedly worked out in the batting cage to test his level of pain before making the decision. Mike Matheny has pulled a few other strings on the lineup card for tonight’s Game 2, Jon Jay starts in center field, and Daniel Descalso takes Pete Kozma’s place at short.

Opposing pitchers would be wise not let Carlos Beltran (above) even get this far in his swing.   Look up there in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Carlos Beltran!

Cardinal Way? Game 1 was the wrong way

When the 2013 World Series began Wednesday night at blustery Fenway Park little did we know what the Cardinals had planned for the viewing audience. It was a comedic tribute to the 2004 World Series 10 years after. Mental errors and physical errors. Futility and frustration. Slapstick and silliness. A no-show of startling proportions.
