Carlos Beltran... What does the futre hold?

Postby dmacblue » Sat Nov 26, 2005 7:16 pm

I am in a H2H 12 team (10 players retained) keeper league.

What do you think about Beltran for the future? Obviously last season has to be considered disappointing for my #3 pick. Can we expect better in year 2 especially with Delgado adding some pop to the line up.

Will the hoped improvement take him back to stud status, or should we be setting our sights lower from here forward. Perhaps 25/25 rather than 40/40.

Many thanks for your thoughts and comments.

Well...I think you have to hope last season was just a blip in his career.

I don't think 30/30 is unreasonable, but temper your bidding on him this season.

Hopefully Willy sees the light and bats Beltran 2nd.

Tha ks for your speedy responses. If this were a redraft H2H points keeper league, where would you expect him to gte drafted for next season? No longer a #3 overall I am sure.

I think Beltran is going to go in the 2nd round next year. A lot of people will say they wouldn't take Beltran until the 3rd, 4th, etc., and they may be justified. But once the 2nd round starts someone will grab him based on name recognition whether or not it's deserved.

I agree with Amazinz...I think I'd take Beltran in the early third, but his name and potential alone will cause him to fly off the board in the second.

Other than sb's, last years totals were inline with his career averages. Id expect a slight increase in stats as he gets more comfortable in ny but definiteyl not 40/40. Assuming he's fully healthy 25/25 is definitely not a stretch and those are mid 3rd numbers

That is a spectacular fall from grace in 12 months. Someone could grab a huge bargain if he is still there in 3rd or 4th round. I just cant see him being WORSE than last season, a repeat of this year would be considered a failure.

As I said, i have him in my H2H points keeper league. I have been offered David Wright straight up for him. I wouldnt have considered this last year, but Wright has all the makings of a great player for the future. That said, so does Beltran , he is still young. #b and OF are both deep positions. Assuming all things were equal ( i dont want to bore you with pasting entire rosters!), would you have a preference for Wright over Beltran?

im not familiar with that point system, but taking a look at it id favor wright. First of all hes a good deal younger. That system seems to favor power and he certainly has more power than beltran. I think wright is on the verge of superstardom and i would definatly get him if i could

Dmac...even if Beltran ends the '06 season beating Wright in that points league, the fact Wright qualifies at 3B compared to OF for Beltran makes this a relatively easy deal for me...take Wright.
