Beltre Syndrome

Postby Yoda » Wed Feb 07, 2007 12:07 pm

Most of us know too well: the rise and fall of Beltre. So who will be the biggest goat of 07?

I could see Atkins having that type of fall off after his monster, monster year.

No way Atkins is a very very solid player which a good head on his shoulders.

I can tell you Atkins 100% won't have a goat season.

I'm going with Morneau
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I'd also go with Jose Reyes

Though not because he doesn't possess the tools, but Jose Reyes could end up being a goat if his hammy issues pop up this year. Especially for someone who invests a #2, #3, or #4 pick on him after one full year injury free.
I could be wrong in what I'm saying but I'll be dead before I realize it.
