A leaping stop, spin and throw from his knees later, Adrian Beltre added another great play to his repertoire

In 1988, glam-rock band Cinderella hit No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Don't Know What You've Got (Till It's Gone)," an epic power ballad with an important message. 
The sentiment of missing out on something because you didn't appreciate it while it was around is a sad one. Nobody wants to feel that, and especially regarding Adrián Beltré. The veteran Rangers third baseman has made it clear that he's unsure if he'll play past this season (and if he does, he'd prefer to remain in Texas), so that means we have to appreciate every great Beltre Moment that we get.
Like this one, from Thursday night's 17-8 win over the Orioles in Arlington, when Beltre robbed Renato Núñez of a hit with a reach, spin, and throw across the diamond from his knees:

Always a cut above, that Beltre.
