After Rangers reliever Robbie Ross showed up a few minutes late one day recently, he found his clothes cut into little pieces. That was third baseman Adrian Beltre's way of letting the rookie know he'd messed up and that someone had noticed. And there was another rookie, reliever Tanner Scheppers, who walked by Beltre without speaking the other day. Beltre playfully poked Scheppers. "You don't talk to me?" Beltre asked. Beltre was letting the rookie know that he indeed was part of the team, that it was OK to loosen up a bit.

From Richard Justice's column on Adrian Beltre.
