Carlos Beltran cried "like a baby"

The Star-Ledger's Andy McCullough has an article on Carlos Beltran as he returns to Houston, where Tim Byrdak noted that we all still hate him, apparently.

The interesting part is Beltran's reaction, when he got traded from Kansas City to Houston:
On June 24, 2004, the Kansas City Royals shipped Beltran to a contender, Houston, in a three-team deal. Beltran wept “like a baby” when he heard the news. Kansas City was home. The organization scooped him out of Puerto Rico when he was 18. His Class-A hitting coach, future Yankees instructor Kevin Long, taught him how to switch-hit. He won Rookie of the Year as a Royal in 1999 and finished as an MVP candidate in 2003. “That was all I knew,” Beltran said.
