GameDay: What If Beltre Was A Giant?

CBS 5 Sports Director Dennis O’Donnell hosts “Gameday” every Sunday night at 11:30pm and offers his unique sports analysis here.

San Francisco (CBS 5) – Watching Adrian Beltre put on his one-man show Tuesday made me wonder what might have been.

The power-hitting third baseman’s name has been linked to the San Francisco Giants for several years, dating back to the off-season of 2009 and then again this off-season before he signed a 6-year, $96 million contract with the Rangers.

Beltre became just the sixth player to hit three home runs in a post-season game Tuesday.

 Brian Sabean wasted no time in signing Aubrey Huff to a 2-year, $22 million contract last offseason after his 2010 heroics. The Monday morning quarterback in me questions that strategy and wonders if a Pablo at first base, Beltre at third scenario would have put the Giants back in the post-season and possibly the World Series. We’ll never know. But Buster, Beltre, and Pablo? Yo Adrian!
