You may have forgotten that Adam Wainwright struck out Carlos Beltran looking to end the 2006 NLCS. That is, unless you read the New York tabloids because they have never let that go.
And so it was this morning, that Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted that Beltran was going to face his new teammate Wainwright in batting practice today. Which led to this exchange. Note: I was joking when I said what I said:
@craigcalcaterra It’s funny that you would ask. Why, yes, one of New York’s finest is here to chronicle the event.

Never change, New York media. Never, ever change.
