It's part of the reason why I scaled back my involvement with the thread this year. If it wasn't about a NY or Boston team, no one would've cared. The conversation would've fizzled. The only reason that Matt Holliday remained a hot topic last year was because David Wright was contending for the MVP as well.
Tis true. And its not like the NY assholes say "Fuck your non NY sports talk" its that the posts are just ignored for the most part since there are 13 different Yankees/Mets/Red Sox discussions going on. Its not a big deal or anything just the nature of having die hard baseball fans from a particular region be the main baseball talkers here.
But as for Beltan, my favorite moment from him is him being frozen like a statue as Wainwright struck his punk ass out to clinch the NL pennant in 06. He's a loser in my book, one big series against us in 04, which he still lost btw, other than that he's small change.
