Quote of the Day: Matt Carpenter on Carlos Beltran
Carlos Beltran continues to be a cool customer in the postseason. The veteran outfielder played hero in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers last night by driving in all three runs, including the game-winner in the 13th inning. He also made a critical throw to nail Mark Ellis at home plate in the 10th.
Beltran’s teammates are at a loss to explain the guy’s remarkable postseason success, but Matt Carpenter attempted to give it a whirl while talking to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com.
Any guesses on the song? I’d probably have to go with “Birdland.” Beltran digs that jazz-fusion.
By the way, Carpenter also suggested that perhaps Beltran’s nickname should be “Mr. Playoffs.” Not sure about that, but it’s certainly better than Señor Octubre.
