Underachiever of the Year

To Adrian Beltre supporters:

Adrian Beltre
1999 84 R, 15 HR, 67 RBI, .275/.352/.428, 780 OPS
2000 71 R, 20 HR, 85 RBI, .290/.360/.475, .835 OPS
2001 59 R, 13 HR, 60 RBI, .265/.310/.411, .721 OPS
2002 70 R, 21 HR, 75 RBI, .257/.303/.425, .729 OPS
2003 50 R, 23 HR, 80 RBI, .240/.290/.424, .714 OPS
2004 104 R, 48 HR, 121 RBI, .334/.388/.629, 1.017 OPS
2005 74 R, 22 HR, 93 RBI, .261/.304/.432, .736 OPS (projected #'s)

Now focus on those numbers for a second. Really take a minute to look at them. Do you see something strange there? Anything just jump out at you at all? Anything? Keep looking, perhaps it will come to you. Maybe it's like one of those magic pictures where an image appears if you focus long enough. Or maybe it's right there in front of your face, like it is for everyone else in the world.

Seriously, think of all the 3Bs available next year who should be taken ahead of Adrian Beltre:
A-Rod
David Wright
Aramis Ramirez
Morgan Ensberg
Chipper Jones
Melvin Mora
Eric Chavez
Troy Glaus
Hank Blalock
Miguel Cabrera (if he qualifies)
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

Some nice numbers there. Really...it was suspected before the season started that Beltre was another Javy Lopez. Contract year to get his bucks and then gets off them Barry "vitamins". Those numbers are amazingly consistent with the exception of 2004. Anyone who things that is an accident is only denyng the obvious reality of the situation.

Barry Bonds, no doubt about it, tho if he comes back, this post could make me look lik ean idiot. This was the year he was supposed to pass the Babe and get evenc loser to Hank Aaron. Guy's yet to even suit up for a game.

Barry Bonds was injured the whole year, he can't be an "underachiever".

he can't underachieve if he didn't achieve anything. he was a bust or whatever you want to call him, but not an underachiever.
