Last year absolutely was a career year for Beltran. Huge bump in homers and a smaller bump in RBIs with 18 SB. Try telling anyone who owned him last year that it wasn't a career year.

Take a look at 2004: 38 HRs and 42 SBs between KC and Houston. If a guy has two years like 2004 & 2006, then I don't think you can call either of them "career years." He's just a damn good ballplayer who's hurting right now and his stats show it.

Agreed. Career year usually refer to numbers that are well outside the norm. Beltran has had many great years since '99. To say he had a "career year" that people should never expect again, you must've only looked at his stats from '05 and 06. Yes, he hit 3 more HR and had a some extra RBIs and Rs (mostly due to being on the Mets rather than the Royals), but he also stole 24 less bases.

If healthy, Beltran has the ability to go 35/20 every year. But staying healthy is the key. He was raking before the injuries, and now with his bad quads, he can't hit a lick. He should go back on the DL. :/
