Beyond the Box Score: On the lack of interest in Albert Pujols’s 600 HR and Adrián Beltré’s pursuit of 3,000 hits

Had Biggio retired a year early, it would be interesting to see how it would have affected his Hall of Fame entry. He had to wait too long for entry as it was, because voters have historically struggled with all-around players such as Biggio. There are likely still voters who can’t be bothered to look beyond whether a player got 3,000 hits or not, but the electorate is gaining a higher percentage of voters who actually know how to evaluate players’ careers with nuance.

Texas Rangers: Excitement from Rangers’ win marred by Adrian Beltre leaving Globe Life in a walking boot | SportsDay

The “good” news: It is apparently not an aggravation of the calf injury that cost him the first two months of the season. The rest of the news: Beltre suffered a left ankle sprain and is likely to miss at least Wednesday’s game against the Mets, if not more.

“It’s tough to put weight on it right now,” Beltre said with uncharacteristic softness, his hands jammed in his pockets,. “It doesn’t feel great. We will say what happens in the next couple of days. But I missed 50-something games, and then to have this happen after six games—yeah, it’s a little frustrating. What can I do?
