Helton. Beltre will have a good year, but come down to earth a bit. Helton is on another planet, and despite having no protection he will still put up stellar numbers.

I think there is no way that Beltre repeats last year, and you always know what you are getting when you draft Helton.

Helton.

Do I need to provide back up for my decision? If so, it's "Duhhhhh!"

I actually think that Helton has a slight edge. I see him scoring slightly more runs and having a much higher average. I see Beltre having more RBIs and slighlty more SB (3 to 7). The problem with Helton this year is that he is playing with a AAA squad so he cannot drive in a ton of runs this year.

And that planet is called Coors field.

The reason why I started this thread was that I am in a situation.

I have Beltre for $1 in my keeper league. we have already drafted and we now dont have to worry about salaray caps. I already have D Wright and M Mora and Belte was at my UT spot. One of the other owners wanted Beltre and is willing to part with Helton for him. My first baseman are S Green and D Young. I am not sure if this is wise move. I love Beltre but i think Helton could be a better fit for me.
