When I think of Beltran, I think of the extra innings game at Shea against the Phillies when he hit the walk off HR in extra innings. One memory of Beltran that doesn't affect me negatively but he hit a HR early in the 2006 season and the fans were demanding a curtain call. Beltran wouldn't budge until Julio Franco insisted he go. He gave a half hearted wave to the crowd.
He destroyed the Braves that year in that three game sweep in August. He even won game 1 of the NLCS with his 2-run HR in the Glavine shutout. He also played the most graceful CF I've seen since Garry Maddox.
