Angel, Watch Out for that Bus!


“I called that ball like six times,” Beltran explained to reporters, from his locker following the game. “That particular play right there, I have priority, so once I call that ball… if it was a different way, Pagan would have called that ball, and my job is to get out of the way. But, basically he stood in the middle and I couldn’t see the ball… He knows that when the center fielder calls for the ball, every one has to get out of the way.”

Spoken like a true leader.

    Just out of curiosity — is Pagan running away from the bus because he got his license taken away?

    And of course, by that, I mean — the days of ragging on Joe.
