Carlos Beltran has joined the 400 club and an elite one it is. I don’t know how much gas he’ll have in the tank as the season progresses, but for now he’s delivered power when we’ve needed it and made a case for himself as a Hall of Famer. He’s also supposed to be a really nice guy. Bravo, Carlos.
Oh, and – no small thing – the Yankees took the series from the White Sox despite having lost to arguably the sport’s best pitcher, Chris Sale. Chase Headley of all people had a big hit today, and Chapman continued to throw heat in save situations. All in all, a good weekend for the Yankees.
As we move into the second half of May, I’d love to see them bust out of last place in the division. I’m not even asking for first place. Just please let them get out of the cellar. I’d say that maybe the warmer weather will help them, but it got colder again today and the coming week doesn’t look much better. Isn’t it supposed to be spring or am I just disoriented from living in California so long?
