Crawford or Beltre who would buy low on.

Crawford or Beltre who would buy low on. Pretty simple question but tough answer I think.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

Id rather have Beltre overall due to postion elgibilty and better HR, RBIs, but if you need an OF or SBs then Crawford. Both are great buy low candidates

Someone asked about Beltre in a recent email question and here was our answer...

Beltre, on the other hand, has suffered huge drops in walks and home runs from last year. As I pointed out in my most recent article, his K to BB ratio and power numbers look a lot like Beltre from 2001-03, when he was a .250-20-75 hitter. I wouldn't be too surprised if his final numbers look like that.

Crawford though is displaying more power and normal plate discipline so the batting average should rise to where it usually is. The problem is that he is attempting less stolen bases. Hopefully he will run a little more for the rest of the season but even if he doesnt he will still steal 40+ bases and with 15+ home runs and close to a .300 batting average he is very valuable. He will also put up more RBI than usual because he is hitting third more often and his runs don't see to be affected too much.

I don't think Crawford is a buy-low candidate. He's not playing that badly.

Unless there's some idiot in your league who thinks he's doing badly.

I would advise doing that trade in a heartbeat if it is straight up.
