Beltran has been hitting the ball better than I expected, given that Shea is a worse hitters park than his previous home parks. He's hitting for nice power and average and driving in runs. I have been so far correct, though, in my prediction that his steals will not approach 40 this year. He's not been running at that sort of clip, and seems to be settling into more of power hitter and run producer than a get-on-base-and-steal guy. If this remains true for the season, Beltran owners will not get their moneys worth. They didn't pay top-5 prices for an OF who hits for moderate power and average without 35+ steals. It's a long season, of course.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
