Why my opinion not matter?
Remember when the Mets were a thing? With the season over and the playoffs raging on, the Mets have become a distant memory but their fanbase which is easily the most interconnected and destructive presence in the world of sports twitter continues to make it’s presence known. The mere fact that ex-met Carlos Beltran is once again in the postseason and putting together another solid showing has given fans a talking point. There are fans of the Mets that dismiss Beltran’s entire career because he looked at a called third strike once and ended a playoff run. Never mind the fact that he alone won game one of the NLCS in 2006 but that doesn’t count apparently. Then there is the other side of the fanbase that believes Beltran should be brought back during the offseason…once again that is stupid. Beltran will be 37 years old next season and even though he is still competing at a high level, there is no way he should be given a multi year deal at this stage...

The Yankees are a team that could use some bat power, and Carlos Beltran would reportedly be more than happy to lend his services. Let's make it happen Yankees!
Beltran is set to be a free agent and according to CBS Sports, the Cardinals slugger wants to wear the pinstripes:

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig stole the show in his team’s Game 3 NLCS win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. He deserved the spotlight after delivering an RBI triple to give LA a 2-0 lead in the 4th inning, but it was his reaction to the hit that set the internet […]

There has been a growing conversation among fans and reporters about the possibility of the Mets bringing back OF Carlos Beltran, although the organizations interest is unknown.
Does it make sense for the Mets to bring back one-time fan favorite Carlos Beltran? I sit on the fence with this one, but opt to say yes under certain conditions.
First off, there is a group inside the Mets...
Baseball’s newest Mr. October could be a Yankee next year.
Carlos Beltran who has become one of the most clutch players in postseason history (except for that one night at Shea) could be on the Yankees’ radar this winter a move the former Met sources say would strongly consider.
According to multiple sources the Yankees could be in the market for an outfielder this winter as...
Over the weekend, the two most well regarded “clutch hitters” in baseball did their thing. Carlos Beltran won Game 1 of the NLCS with a 13th inning walk-off double, continuing his long trend of destroying the baseball in the postseason. On Sunday, David Ortiz hit a game tying grand slam in the 8th inning, capping a somewhat miraculous comeback when the Tigers seemed fully in...
The New York Yankees have outfielder Curtis Granderson scheduled to be a free agent at the end of the year and he is not guaranteed to return. The Yankees are expected to be in the market for an outfielder this offseason and they reportedly are eyeing a future Hall-of-Famer as a potential option.
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that the New York Yankees are interested...
Yasiel Puig has been ticking some people off all season. It appears that he’s now under the skin of the Cardinals.
Puig, who is as polarizing as he is talented, became very animated while delivering an RBI triple in the Dodgers’ 3-0 win over the Cardinals in Game 3 of the NLCS on Monday. He raised his arms upon smacking the ball to right field, and then once again celebrated...
The Yankees exciting free agency rumors continue to swirl. Shortly after we mentioned that Carlos Beltran is interested in wearing pinstripes next season – and, suffice to say, the feeling is mutual – another big name free agent became linked with New York, and it’s hard to see the Yanks letting this one go easily.
Yep, ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchland is reporting...
Sunday night, David Ortiz faced Joaquin Benoit with the bases loaded. There were two outs, and the Tigers were winning the game by four, but it was nevertheless a tense situation, with Tigers fans feeling deeply anxious and Red Sox fans feeling something similar to that, only a little warmer. Everybody recognized that it was the plate appearance of the ballgame — a hell of a lot...
Claim to fame: Seemingly, Carlos Beltran's moment has arrived. As I write this, Game 3 of the National League Championship Series is underway, and while Beltran's St. Louis Cardinals are present losing 3-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers, something has finally come to light through this series: Beltran is a beast in the postseason. I never knew this, but through 181 lifetime...
What do these ladies ( above ) have in common?They are all die-hard Yankee fans who have a response to Brian Cashman's brilliant idea to bring soon-to-be 37 year old Carlos Beltran to the Yankees. For, let's say, a 3-5 year deal at $15 million per. See if you can judge their reaction. Anyone feel the same?If Cashman pulls off this debacle, he should be stripped naked...
In the deciding game of their NLDS match up, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves on a late inning two run home run by former San Francisco Giants postseason hero Juan Uribe.
Then, a few days later, in the first game of the NLCS, Uribe’s Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals when former Giant stopgap Carlos Beltran ended the game in the 13th inning.
Before the post season started, a few people asked me which two teams I predicted would meet in the World Series. I calmly responded that I hoped it would come down to the Pirates and the Athletics. Well as we know predictions are like opinions – everybody has one, and of course mine were wrong.
So now that we are down to the final four teams, I will have to hold my nose and...
