Lot of people are saying Beltran... I'm going to go with Beltre. I kept him thinking the worst he can do is 30-100-.280ish after his monster season.

NEVER, EVER pick a player who busts out for one great season after a string of mediocre, disappointing seasons. There are too many safer, good, talented players with longer track records available to choose from.
