Adrian Beltre doesn’t really need an excuse to be silly. Sometimes he’s faking a catch. Sometimes he’s dancing on the basepaths:
So, when he got silly at the plate last night, I guess there didn’t have to be a reason – but I can’t help but wonder if he was feeling extra good because he’d just signed a new, two-year, $36 million extension with the Rangers.

I like playing out Beltre’s monologue as I’m watching the play. “OK, ready to hit, ready to hit, he’s winding up, here it comes, WHOOOOOAAA. NO. NO THANK YOU!”
Of course, he’s just having some fun. As he does. Especially now that he got paid again.
