My vote has to be Frank Thomas.

If you're prejudiced against him for some reason, I'd say Beltran too.

um sheff has 16 SB, to go along with his amazingness in the other 4 fantasy catgories. This is why he is ranked #1 in fantasy by yahoo. Sheffield all year has been the best fantasy player and the best 5 catrgory fantasy player

The problem with Beltran is that he is not much of a power hitter. He has 21 HRs, 7 3B, and only 8 2B. He only has 36 extra base hits. That's rather low for a "power" hitter. His SLG% is only .513 which is very low for a"power" hitter.

The key to Fantasy Sports is NOT about Sports but rather the "manipulation of numbers" in your favor

i would say the number oen has to be beltran, no one else seems to have his blend. I would say that 20 sb's 20 hrs are a minimum to be considered.

But is that more valuable than someone who hits 40 HRs and 18 SBs?

it all goes back to which 5 categories: Real or Fantasy. real is what was mentioned: average, power, running, fielding throwing. Fantasy is the categories in a 5x5 league: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG. regardless, it's beltran for both in my opinion.

Exactly. Everyone here seems to be forgetting the fielding and throwing categories when talking about a 5-tool player. It seems fantasy has altered people's perception of an all-around ball player. In addition to Beltran's diverse fantasy prowess, he is a defensive stud.
