It was mentioned in another thread, but I think he deserves his own.

Carlos Beltran has announced his retirement. I hope he gets into the Hall of Fame

Mostly underappreciated by Mets fans in general.

Classy guy, great player, good teammate.

Just kidding. :lol:

Was a great Met and is a great human being by all accounts. Best of luck to him in retirement.

Should probably go in as a Royal, but this would be a cool one day contract decision.

He and Carlos Delgado were two of my favorite guys off the field. Class, professionalism and baseball awesomeness.

First ballot IMHO.

We were really fortunate to watch him play most of his prime.

He was one of my favorite players to watch. He made everything look so easy. I never saw Willie Mays play live, but I've heard comparisons in this regard (outstanding all-around player that made the fame look easy).

I believe he's on the record as wanting to go on as a Met if the HOF comes calling. And it's very debatable as to what cap he should wear. He played for the Mets in more games, had a higher OPS, and won 3 Gold Gloves as a Met. As a matter of fact as i'm typing more he really should be inducted as a Met.

Might go with one of those no team caps, or where you can't see the logo

I remember his homer early in 2006, the fans cheered (after some booing him in 05). Julio Franco made him get out of the dugout and acknowledge the fans cheers. He got on great with the fans after that. Props to Julio and I loved Carlos. He gave us some great seasons.

I wouldn't go in as a Met if I were him. The fans never appreciated him. He didn't deserve the crap and they don't deserve the cap.

But maybe he's a bigger man than Sergio, The Little Man.

I actually don't disagree with your point, but as someone who always had to stick up for the guy I hope he does go in as a Met.
