Beltran, who stole his autograph, supports less than 50% of the qualifying examination for the Myeongjeon

 Carlos Beltran (45) won 46.5% of the vote in the first year of qualification for the 2023 Hall of Fame of the American Baseball Correspondents Association (BBWAA). This is 181 votes out of 389 who cast their votes.

This is the highest number of votes among 14 candidates in the first year of qualification. Excluding Beltrán and closer Francisco Rodriguez (10.8%), 12 are less than 5% and no longer hold the candidacy. In a word, it is a failure. Beltran’s 46.5% was less than expected by experts. In 2017, the censorship by the ringleader of sign stealing at the Houston Astros worked. It is difficult to get 75% support in the first year, but more than 50% is expected.

Born in Puerto Rico, Beltrán is an excellent hitter who ranks in the top five switch hitters of all time. Only four people have more than 400 home runs as a switch hitter: Mickey Mantle (536), Eddie Murray (504), Chipper Jones (468), and Beltran (435). It is also included in the Hot Junjok, which has created 5 all-time home runs of 400 or more and stolen bases of 300 or more. It wouldn’t be strange if he joined the Hall of Fame this year.

He was drafted in the second round by the Kansas City Royals in 1995. He played 20 years for 7 teams including the New York Mets, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros, Texas Rangers and SF Giants before retiring. He had a career batting average of .279, 435 home runs, 1587 runs batted in, 312 stolen bases, 1582 runs scored, and an OPS of .837. He also won the 1999 AL Rookie of the Year award, as well as two Silver Slugger Awards, three Gold Glove Awards, and nine All-Star selections. He even received the 2013 Roberto Clemente Award for community service and good deeds in St. Louis.

But he fell for autograph stealing in 2017 when he won his only World Series. His previous MLB performance was stained, and even his manager had to step down. After he was appointed head coach of the New York Mets on November 1, 2019, the MLB Secretariat’s investigation revealed that he was the mastermind behind Houston’s sign stealing. Eventually, after reaching an agreement with the club, he resigned as Mets manager on January 16, 2020, after failing to hold his baton. He currently works as a commentator for YES, a dedicated New York Yankees broadcast.

Judging by the voting results of this press corps, it is clear that Beltrán’s sign stealing had an effect. However, he was clearly distinguished from drug suspects. There is a big difference between the voting results of drug suspects such as Mark Maguire, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens. Their voting support was at the level of a joke. 슬롯사이트

In 2013, the unprecedented 7-time MVP Bonds and 7-time Cy Young Award winner Clemens’ approval ratings in the first year were 36.2% and 37.6%, respectively. In 2022, which was the last 10 years of qualification, the baseball reporters vote ended with 66.0% for Bonds and 65.2% for Clemens. The two were in a position to be asked whether or not to join the modern baseball era committee (Contemporary Baseball Era Committee). Fred McGriff became a member of the 2023 Myeongjeon through this committee. In a situation where 75% of the 16 voters needed to win more than 12 votes, Bonds and Clemens received 4 votes.

2023 member Scott Rolen, who became a member of the Myeongjeon by voting by baseball reporters after six years, started with 10.2% (43 votes) in the first year of qualification in 2017 and entered with 76.3% this year.

Beltrán was strong in the postseason and was known as ‘Mr. He had a .307 batting average, 16 home runs, and 42 RBIs in 65 postseason games. It is interesting to see when the American baseball reporters will support more than 75%.
