Anthony Castrovince: Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran pads postseason legacy | MLB.com

Understand, though, that modern medicine played its part in Beltran’s unexpectedly electric evening. No, he didn’t rub down his ribs with some of that magic green rosin that apparently helps Jon Lester when he’s sweating like a pig, but Beltran did get a shot of Toradol, the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that is an alternative to cortisone. It’s a legal substance not banned by MLB.

“Basically they gave me an injection to kind of block the pain for five hours or six hours,” Beltran said. “I know for sure [Friday] I’m going to feel sore. The good thing is [Friday] I have the day off, and I’ve got the opportunity to get treatment, and hopefully Saturday I feel better than what I feel today.”

Edit: link fixed. Jim.

I read an interesting study in the Journal of Applied Psychology that 90% of the people who believe in Beltran's Magical Postseason Powers also believe in the tooth fairy.

The other 10% are just plain crazy. Although it gets difficult because the two groups overlap. The study concluded that more study is needed. Children make up an unspecified percentage of the group, although many of these children appear to be living in adult bodies.

When you speak of "the group", you mean "trolls", right?

WADR, STFU, and go play some DMB. Please.

Neither the excerpt nor the article mention any special postseason powers for Beltran, so maybe save your wisdom-less ranting for when it is at least somewhat relevant.

Looking forward to your next exposé, “NORAD Isn’t Really Tracking Santa Claus, You Happy, Sociable Morons."

So it's okay that Beltran is on the juice in the playoffs?
