Granted, it was a really good pitch, thrown by a really good pitcher. But it’s Game 7 of the NLCS, your team is losing 3-1, and you’re at-bat with the bases loaded. For the love of "the old college try," "carpe diem," and countless motivational coffee mugs, YOU HAVE GOT TO GO DOWN SWINGING. If the Statue of Liberty and Mr. Met were to have a child, it would probably be Carlos Beltran.
