BASEBALL: Cardinal Flush

Holy Cross alum Brian at Redbird Nation has a fine writeup of last night's action in St. Louis, with bonus points for saying the weather was "Worcestering" out. I still haven't read enough about the game yet to find out who was shooting off the fireworks in the pouring rain in the middle of the 7th inning.

Oh, and: yes, I know I'm against big free agent signings, but I do want Carlos Beltran for Christmas (and yes, that's a baseball-reference.com link with 2004 stats, hooray!). He's the type of free agent worth pursuing - a top-of-the-market player, broad base of skills, showing rapid improvement in patience and power the past two years, runs well, plays great defense, and he's only 28 next season. And just imagine a defensive outfield with Beltran and Cameron.

The defensive outfield combo would be cool...as would the offensive combo of Beltran, Sheffield & Matsui. Yum.

THIS Holy Cross alum thinks Beltran will be in center field as a Yankee for the next few years. After all, you will agree, I think, that the Yankees DESERVE first-class talented free agents. If Beltran went to Boston, for example, he'd probably be injured. You just cannot fight the Curse of The Bambino.

[crossing fingers] We're keeping Carlos in Houston! [/crossing fingers]
