I'm with Jayman.

Why send $119 million hurtling down the basepaths unless its absolutely necessary? That's why I didn't draft him this year. I didn't think Mets management wasn't going to make a track star of him. I'd be surprised f he gets more than 20 this year.

if they aren't going to send him, really -- what is the point? why didn't they spend for a more one dimesional slugger and let cameron patrol that area?

Vlad: 3 Steals
Beltran: 1 Steal.

Beltran has not given what made him the high pick, and that was his steals. And he isn't running, plain and simple. And that doesn't look like its going to change.

That is a great point. Maybe it's just because they can send him if they really need a SB, like Dave Roberts last year. Either way, his base running instincts are so great that he might be rusty in reading pitchers when that time comes that they actually need the base.

Pretty dumb, I know he's a big investment...but I see no reason not to at least let him steal 20-25.

real baseball is not fantasy baseball.
you don't have to steal bases to win baseball games.
