Adrian Beltre is Absolutely, Unequivocally a Hall of Famer

Nineteen ninety-eight was a big year for Adrian Beltre. Four years after he was originally signed by the Dodgers, the 19-year-old Beltre made his major league debut with the Los Angeles ball club. That's right, Los Angeles so coveted the burgeoning talents of Beltre that the team signed him at the ripe old age of 15 despite the fact that Major League Baseball had rules in place...

Red Sox Revisionism: What If the Sox Had Signed Adrian Beltre?

Adrian Beltre played just one season with the Red Sox, but it was a good one. He was among the top third basemen in baseball in 2010. He sported a .298 true average, made the American League All-Star team and won a Silver Slugger. He was also a Gold Glove candidate. Beltre’s 2010 was a breakthrough after five middling seasons in Seattle. He emerged as a top-tier player who was...

Adrian Beltre played through torn thumb ligament

Thanks to one of the biggest postseason meltdowns on this side of Clippers-Rockets, the Texas Rangers failed to advance to the American League Championship Series this season. But one Ranger that certainly can’t be faulted for not leaving it all out on the baseball diamond is third baseman Adrian Beltre. On Friday, two days after...Read More

Beltran, Beltre and the greatest active players without a ring

Carlos Beltran‘s season ended last night in the same way it’s ended in each of the last 18 seasons he’s spent time playing Major League Baseball: without a championship. Beltran, one of the greatest postseason hitters of all time, with 16 home runs and a 192 wRC+ in 223 plate appearances, did what little he could against Dallas Keuchel, producing one of the three New York Yankees...

Adrian Beltre’s case for Cooperstown is rock solid

On Monday, following Adrian Beltre’s home run in the fifth inning that completed the cycle, his home run trot would suggest he had done it before. That’s because he had. Indeed, last night was the third cycle Beltre had hit during his 18-year big league career, only the 4th player in history to hit that mark. Beltre continues to impress consistently and quietly with his play...

Rangers’ Adrian Beltre Hits For Third Career Cycle, Ties MLB Record (Video)

Adrian Beltre completes cycle, gets mad when assaulted

Adrian Beltre became just the fourth player in baseball history to hit three cycles in his career on Monday night – and he completed his cycle in the fifth inning with a home run off of new Astros pitcher Mike Fiers. After homering, his teammates (and *especially* Elvis Andrus, as usual) removed his helmet and mauled poor Beltre’s head. Beltre’s reaction here is amazing...

Video: In two swings, Adrian Beltre goes from foolish to fearsome

We already know that Adrian Beltre has a tremendous sense of humor, as demonstrated by how he’s reacted over the years to teammates and colleagues rubbing his head. The Rangers third baseman again displayed his (un)willingness to laugh at himself after spinning himself to the ground on a swing-and-miss at an Evan Scribner curveball. Swinging so hard that he drops to a knee is...
