What other large market did he play in? Since leaving KC he's been good at every stop, so I don't know what you're referring to.
If he was to be booed it would be because Yankees fans are spoiled rotten and an unreasonably impatient group.
The last paragraph explains why he would be booed to a T. He would be a disappointment regardless of what contract he signed if he did nothing short of bringing the 28th ring to the franchise.
Beltran may have overall good numbers, but in do or die situations he folds. Bottom of the 9th, full count, in game 7 of the NLCS, and he strikes out looking? Brutal. I do believe he was mostly a non factor against Boston this past season, but to be fair, so did every Cardinal.
If it's me, I'd bring in Choo or I'd pass all together and go for a pitcher.
