Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre, whose habit of falling to one knee while batting is second only to his absolute hatred of having his head touched in a ranking of Adrian Beltre quirks, did not expect a 61-mph pitch from Red Sox reliever Fernando Abad in Wednesday’s game. The result was a powerful man somewhat…
The Rangers had already clinched the division before last night’s game against the Brewers so Adrian Beltre was in high spirits—even after striking out in the fifth inning.
Adrian Beltre is one of the most entertaining baseball players any of us will ever have the pleasure of watching. He’s done many great things on the field that I will remember fondly, but falling to one knee as he hits the goddamn hell out of a baseball will certainly go down as his signature move. Last night, he gave…
Ambidextrous relief pitcher Pat Venditte has been in Major League Baseball for about a year. He’s bounced back and forth between the show and the minors, and Venditte made his Mariners debut this evening. After starter Hisashi Iwakuma was chased after three innings, Venditte stepped in and pitched three innings of…
If you try to touch Adrian Beltre’s head, he’ll flip out. If you try to douse him in one or more jugs of celebratory post-game beverage, he’ll mount up, grab weapons, and ward you off with them.
Jesse Hahn served up a nice tasty meatball to Adrian Beltre tonight, who was so excited to sink his bat into it that he fell and had to steady himself while he was in the process of sending it 429 feet into the sky.
Chris Tillman had a rough night. The Orioles pulled him after he gave up 6 runs in 5.1 innings of work. That’s nothing to be ashamed of, the Rangers can really hit and they’re in their home ballpark. However this pitch to Adrian Beltre is flat embarrassing.
To be fair, if Albert Belle suddenly made an appearance at bat in the MLB postseason that would be a pretty big story.
The Rangers beat the Mariners tonight in the most anti-climactic of climactic ways, on a walk-off walk. Here’s a video of the play, but it’s pretty boring considering that it’s just a walk:
Adrian Beltre’s frequently the target of his teammates’ antics, usually when he excels, but the Rangers third baseman had some fun as the instigator with Astros third base coach Gary Pettis Tuesday night.
Adrian Beltre really needs to stop doing great things, or he’s going to keep getting his head touched. And you know how much he hates that.
Rangers third baseman Joey Gallo made his major league debut tonight, and I can already tell that he is going to be one of my favorite baseball players. Basically, every time he comes to the plate, Gallo swings as hard as he possibly can. This results in a ludicrous number of strikeouts, but an equally ludicrous…
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hit a homer last night, the 399th of his career, meaning it was time for his soulmate, Elvis Andrus, to attempt one of the most dangerous feats in the game.
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre got worked over pretty good by Angels starter Garrett Richards on Friday night. Beltre faced Richards three times in six innings, and ended up with nothing more than three broken bats to show for it.
Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre hit a solo homer against the A’s yesterday. As usual, his baseball life partner, Elvis Andrus, was there to mess with him when he returned to the dugout.
This offseason, MLB instituted a handful of new rules aimed at speeding up games. Less than a week into the season, the league seems to be making an effort to stay on top of the enforcement of these new rules.
You might want to sit down for this. After hitting a triple last night, Angels outfielder Mike Trout chatted with Adrian Beltre, and touched the Rangers third baseman's head without him getting mad.
