Would like to see him stay in Houston, but I'd bet he winds up in NY.

Carlos was a great piece to the puzzle this past season. He was a mentor to this young team as was McCann. He may not have put up the numbers he wanted to this year but he had quite a few key hits when the team needed them. He was very gracious and accepting of his diminished role as the season wore on and the post season got underway. I wish him nothing of the best going forward. I never understood why some fans were upset when he left the first time. He came in and did more than anyone imagined and then took advantage of the situation he made for himself. Thank you Carlos Beltran for helping bring that World Series Championship to the city of Houston your second time through.

suck up

I think he helped ...actually i know he did based on every Astros interviewed about him.... helped in his leadership capacity more than his bat... but then ..thats why he was really here...
And while there were a few that hated his at AB's, until he smoked one every now and then, and thought the team would better off with him somewhere else because his playing time contributions were just low as hell....those guys OBVIOUSLY didnt see the bigger picture BEHIND the scenes.
Its ok.
People make mistakes. Some of them ate that crow, so lets forgive and forget.

I too dont think he'll be with the Astros.. think the Yanks will let him finish whatever he decides to do as a Yankee.

I ordered a hat but not that one. Along with 2 shirts to morning after and they will finally get here Friday. My ALCS shirt didn't get here until the Friday after the WS so I just hung it in the closet.

Strom on Beltran and his contributions to the pitching staff.

Strom: Beltran made my job easier

Astros pitching coach Brent Strom recalls the feeling of being on the field for a World Series championship

By Joe Trezza / MLB.com | November 14th, 2017
Word around the baseball world following Carlos Beltran's retirement Monday, after 20 magnificent seasons, is that Beltran will make a great manager some day.

Industry insiders cite Beltran's baseball acumen and his ability to communicate with young players, who often revere him, as two of his strengths. In this vein, Astros pitching coach Brent Strom recalled a story Tuesday on MLB Network Radio that spoke to these attributes.

Strom has known Beltran since the former outfielder's days as a young player in Kansas City, where Strom took one of his first pitching-coach gigs. The two were reunited this past season in Houston, where Beltran finished his playing career with a World Series championship.

Beltran was so respected by the younger Astros that "the pitchers would listen to him more than they would me," Strom said, specifically when it came to telegraphing pitches.
Beltran has long been known as one of the game's best at recognizing when pitchers are tipping their pitches. It's part of why he enjoyed such a successful career at the plate, and why teammates love having him in the dugout. This World Series was no different.

"He wore me out," Strom said, laughing. "He wore me out telling me how my pitchers are tipping. It finally got to the point where I said, 'I know. I know.' He really helped me a great deal with Lance McCullers Jr. and Chris Devenski and everybody. It's really frustrating sitting there, watching your pitcher, and he's whispering in my ear that a changeup is coming. And there it was. Or a curveball is coming, and there it was."

Astros pitching coach Brent Strom recalls getting help from Carlos Beltran on pitchers tipping
Strom credited Beltran with helping turn around the performance of Houston's bullpen, which struggled for some of the series but also came up huge in spots -- especially in Game 3 and Game 7.
"I was just hoping the other team wasn't picking it up," Strom said about his pitchers tipping. "[Beltran] really helped me a great deal in that aspect. He actually forced me, and his credibility is such that the pitchers would listen to him more than they would me. We made some appropriate changes, hopefully in time, to curtail the tipping. There is so much of it going on because pitchers are creatures of habit. We have a tendency to go through the routine we go through and we don't even realize we're doing it. He was great. This was a leader. Between him and Brian McCann, it was really what this team needed.
"We were good the last couple of years," Strom said. "But we didn't have anybody like McCann or Beltran come in and guide the young guys."

I was thinking about this today and his list of accomplishments is probably 90% HOF worthy now. He may go down as one of the all time greats if he can duplicate the past 4 years......the next 4 years.

Chew, go to a NYC deli and for breakfast order a Taylor pork roll, fried egg and cheese on a hard roll. Your life (and arteries) will never be the same!
