Those are CBS's projections. They will be rather close at the end of the season. Those players have a good chance being very close to those numbers because of the system 1, 2, 3, 4 for each base. 1 RBI & RUN etc.
You obviously feel like this is collusion even though no one else agrees with you. And I realize nothing said will change your mind. However, you have no idea whether the points for any of these players will end up being close or not. I mean, I doubt Javy's projections are going to be close now that he's missing 6 weeks.
The guy made a trade for what he preceived to be a need. He may believe (whether you agree with him or not) that Beltran and/or Furcal won't perform to the levels CBS expects. While it certainly isn't the best trade, IMHO, nothing you have provided smacks of collusion.
I agree with the other poster than almost any trade of a 1st round draft pick gets calls of collusion unless another 1st rounder is involved, regardless of the strengths and weaknesses of the respective teams.
