Adrian Beltre Would Like a Moment

There is a sense of inevitability about a baseball card that features a player attempting to call a timeout at the plate. The inevitability is that this player can be no one other than Adrian Beltre …

For this and countless other reasons, Mr. Adrian Beltre shall be known, from this moment until we return to ash and primordial soup, as “Interrobang.”

The fact that he will point to the 1st base umpire to appeal his own swing is certainly an Interrobang moment, considering the fact that only the defense can appeal a swing.

And considering the fact that the only thing that could result from an appeal is a strike.

This is great and all, but now I’m upset that he doesn’t play on the Brewers. Interrobang, BEAST MODE!!!

I strenuously deny the allegations against me. The bald statements of my accusers will not hold up to the facts. I have never voted for Adrian Beltre three times in one poll in my life.

If anyone has any more questions about this, my response is 999.

(I say… did Adrian Beltre win by two votes?)

I feel personally responsible for Beltre winning this nickname. He was my pick in the nomination thread, I voted for him in the first poll, and I suggested the shenanigans that ensured a tie in the second poll.

So I’d like to commend you on your assistance in this conspiracy.
