The graphic last night about players with 10+ runs and 10+ RBI made me think back to Beltran’s amazing 2004 postseason. Let’s caveat that Beltran kept this up over 12 games, but:
And granted, Beltran was playing amazing defense in CF. But here’s the thing: at the time, I felt like I was watching Beltran have an out-of-body experience that could never be replicated. With Yordan, I just feel like this is what he can do - I’m not surprised by it.
We’re so lucky to watch the prime years of this guy’s career.
