"So, this year, tell Jimmy Rollins we are the team to beat." -Carlos Beltran, February 16thSo we're stealing quotes now. Wasn't enough we steal "Who Let The Dogs Out" and "Sweet Caroline". Now we're stealing guarantees.
If you know me at all, you'll know that I applaud this. Good for Carlos Beltran. Enough blandness and vanilla wafer quotes. Go for the throat. Now he's the lightning rod, and you know that he's gotta know that even an off-handed quote to a bunch of reporters would make it's way towards the headlines ... because that's what quotes like that do. So good for him in his attempts to be a vocal leader.
Just so long as Carlos knows that now, to back up that quote, he's gotta be Superman this season. And as you know, there's only one Superman.
All right, I guess there's two now.
