Carlos Beltrán announces his retirement on The Players' Tribune

Carlos Beltran announced his retirement in an article on The Players' Tribune on Monday.

Enjoy retirement, Carlos. We can't wait to see what you'll do next.

The interviews the Yankees are conducting today include the names of Aaron Boone and Hensley Meulens according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. I think I speak for the entire staff here at Redbird Rants when I say thank you Carlos Beltran for everything you did throughout your baseball career. Over 20 years, I feel like I accomplished that.

Before we do that, though, can we stipulate that, however irresistible it is to ask this question, it's not a question that must be answered in the affirmative for a player to be appreciated? But the Gators (3-6, 3-5 SEC) turned to Luke Del Rio in early October, went back to Franks the following week and then ended up starting Zaire after the program parted ways with coach Jim McElwain two weeks ago.

Beltran's career saw him win the American League's Rookie of the Year award in 1999 as well as three Gold Glove and two Silver Slugger Awards. He succeeds John Coppolella, who was forced to resign Oct. 2 after an ongoing investigation by Major League Baseball disclosed rule violations committed by the Braves in the international player market. Beltran stood tall at the plate and kept his body straight and quiet as he whipped around a long swing that always managed to meet the ball right where it needed to.

"He was worth every penny for us", Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday at the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando, site of the annual GM meetings.

Steen tied it at 11:46 and then Ferland's power-play goal restored Calgary's one-goal lead at 12:31. "He was someone that people gravitated to in the clubhouse". In that way, he understands the highs and lows of the things players experience and how to utilize each's skill set into the overall good of a team.

The Atlanta Braves have hired former Dodgers and Blue Jays executive Alex Anthopoulos as their general manager.

Though his production lacked in his final major league season, Beltran was immediately revered by his Astros teammates for his veteran leadership and wisdom. The Raiders and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million, while the team has also secured a $600 million bank loan. Regardless, he will be a member of the Royals Hall of Fame in short order as one of the greatest outfielders in franchise history. He then batted.231 with 14 homers and 51 RBIs for Houston. "But it still feels nice to have a ring", he continued.

Despite never finishing in the top three in MVP award voting, Beltran piled up several individual honors, including his Rookie of the Year award.

He finishes with a.279 average, 435 home runs, 1,587 RBI and 312 stolen bases.
