Carlos Beltran Announces Retirement After 20-Year Career

Carlos Beltran retires from baseball

In addition to writing for ESNY, Zach is a passionate supporter of Syracuse athletics and exemplifies his allegiance through contributing for Fansided's Inside the Loud House and The Armchair All-Americans. He's going out on top after winning his first World Series ring with the Astros this year. Beltran announced his interest in becoming the manager for the Yankees, and according to Cashman, he has a shot.

Stanton is only 28 years old and coming off a season where he hit 59 home runs, Stanton is one of the biggest names on the open market. It's quite the accomplishment, among a career of sparkling superlatives. Over 20 years, I feel like I accomplished that. Join the House of Houston team!

It's pretty clear, having read all of that, that Beltran's candidacy is one about being an all-around great player, not as a supremely great hitter who achieved some hallowed milestone or who was some sort of freakish specialist in any one aspect of the game like defense or base running or batting average or something. I'm sure Dave Hudgens can use an extra hand on the staff to help this team be even better than ever before and Beltran would be a perfect fit.

Beltran retires with a lifetime.279/.350/.486 triple slash, which includes 2,725 hits, 565 doubles and 435 home runs.

HOUSTON - It took quite some time, but Carlos Beltran finally got there, winning a World Series title after 20 seasons in the majors.

"It's a blessing", he said at the time. Does a lack of an MVP award and some statistical dips make it harder to imagine him as the Undeniable Stats Monster?

After years of planning, dealing and getting millions in public financing approved, the Oakland Raiders broke ground Monday night on their new 65,000-seat, domed stadium in Las Vegas. "But I never thought that I needed to win a World Series to make my career complete". All of the swirling rumors of what do we do with Carlos Beltran if he decides that he still wants to keep playing has been put to rest. It was not immediately known if Anthopoulos will be given control of baseball operations with the Braves, duties that have been managed by team president John Hart.

"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.

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

The Atlanta Braves hired former Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays executive Alex Anthopoulos as their executive vice president and general manager, the team announced. Regardless, he will be a member of the Royals Hall of Fame in short order as one of the greatest outfielders in franchise history.
