In an effort to curb what he considers unfair criticism, former MLB All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran recently released a book about his time in the minors.
The title, “Bad: A Life of Bad,” was inspired by his experiences as a rookie and the experiences of his teammates and coaches.
Beltran is an author of the book and will be speaking at the book launch in New York City on Sunday.
Here’s a look at the most common questions and answers from his book.
Q: What’s wrong with the way I’m treated as a player?
A: The way I was treated as an athlete was that I was a liability.
If you’re in the big leagues, you’re going to get traded for a superstar.
But if you’re not in the major leagues, there’s nothing to be gained from that.
Q, What about my personal life?
A, When you play for a team like the Orioles, you have to have a pretty good lifestyle.
You’re going through the process of getting your body ready to play the game and then you’re trying to stay healthy.
The biggest thing for me was to make sure that my wife was a healthy woman who had been through this process herself.
The only thing that was going to be different for me is my career.
Is there anything I need to know before I start reading?
I’m going to put my book out at the same time that they do, and you can’t just jump right into the book.
You have to read it through and then decide whether or not you want to read more of the story.
Q.: What are the main lessons I learned?
A., It’s really important that you stay in shape, that you do the right thing.
And don’t drink too much alcohol.
I have no problem with that.
It’s all about balance.
Q., What do I do after I finish the book?
A.: If you can make it to the point where you’re able to take a nap, that’s great.
If it’s a late night or a weekday, that can be nice.
But, if you can sit and read the book for a few hours, then I think it’s time to go back to work.
Q:’Why are there so many athletes who can’t get back on the field after an injury?
Because there are so many factors.
The fact is that a lot of players that come back, they go back because they think they can win again.
They think that if they just get back, the next guy is going to win the game.
That’s not how it works.
There’s a lot more to it than that.
You want to play and win the next time.
Is there a rule that you don’t have to eat breakfast?
A,’ You have a meal at 9:00 a.m. and you have lunch at 2:00 p.m., and you don`t have a break until 4:00.
I eat breakfast, I have lunch, I go home at 5:00 and I`re on the plane and I have dinner.
Q,’ Is it possible to lose a lot from being in the minor leagues?
A.- It depends on what the injury is.
A lot of times, players are hurt that they’re hurt because of the game or they’re injured because they’re not physically capable of playing.
I mean, if it’s injury-related, the game isn’t over.
There`s a lot that can happen.
Q.,” What about your relationship with the fans?
I know that it’s not going to change overnight.
It took a while for me to find my voice and my purpose.
And I think the fans have a big role to play in that.
I think we`ve got to keep trying to win a championship and we`re going to do that.
Q., How important is it to win?
A,- It`s really important to win, but it’s more important to get a win than a win.
It`ll help you in the future and it`ll give you some pride in your accomplishment.
“Do you ever want to win an MLB championship?
A,” Of course.
I love playing baseball.
It makes me happy.
I`ve been playing the game for a long time.
It is what it is.
I just hope to continue to be a good player and to be able to help my teammates.
Q,” What do you think of the Orioles?
A.,” I think they`re a good team.
I thought they were good in the regular season.
I don`re sure if they`ll get a championship.
They are playing at a high level right now.
