I’m Rooting For Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals

October 8th, 2012 by Ceetar in 2012, Baseball, Mets

Normally I wouldn’t be pro-Cardinals, especially after they eliminated the Mets in 2006, but as long as it’s not the Yankees It doesn’t really matter to me which team wins.  I don’t hate the Yankees because they win, I hate the attitude of many of the fans and the treatment they get in the media.  That’s what makes me root against them.  The Cardinals could be considered similar, but I have no contact with their fans and being in a different city keeps me separated from most of the Yankees writer counterparts that you can’t help but hear about when you live in the NYC area.  What does matter to me is Carlos Beltran.

 

Carlos Beltran may be a Hall of Famer alreadydepending on who you ask, but for those that don’t think he is, a World Series ring and further postseason domination would strengthen his case.  He’s played more games with the Mets than anyone else, the next closest being his Royals origins.  This suggests that if he were to get inducted down the road, he’d go in as a Met.  That means I’m invested in Beltran collecting the criteria required to strengthen his case, and if that means rooting for the Cardinals this postseason, so be it.

 

Carlos Beltran was one of the best Mets ever, and it was a joy to watch him during his tenure here.  He’s still a great player, and I’m rooting for him to continue the postseason dominance he’s shown in his previous two trips there.

    It’s still hard for me to bring myself to root for the old NL East clubs, but Beltran’s presence on (and TLR’s absence from)the Cardinals overcomes that. I’d like to see a Cardinals/O’s World Series because it guarantees that either Beltran or Chavez wins. And then we all win.

    The Nationals do not deserve to go to the World Series because they benched their ace. That behavior should not be rewarded with a championship.

Let’s Go Mets!
