Texas really got a young hitter

Postby MaudDib » Thu Aug 09, 2007 4:57 pm

I was just checking up on Engel Beltre for my Dynasty league and noticed that according to RotoTimes he was born 1/1/2050. Man to actually trade for a guy not even born yet. I think that maybe reaching a little too much for young cheap talent.

To be fair, he's done a lot more than anyone else did at that age.

Alex Rodriguez couldn't even crack the majors at -43.
That speaks wonders for this kid's potential.

As I am from the future, I can tell you Engle Beltre is TRÜ's great-grandchild. Great potential, but plagued by his great-grandfather's 50 years of tax problems, TRÜ IV's career fizzled and never made it past AAA.

On the brightside, his name is Engle...wait..no, nevermind, there is no brightside to this story.

Just think of how many years this kid can play. Heck, even if it took him 10 years to get to the majors, and then he played until he was only 32, that's a 65 year major league career! :-B

That's gotta be some kind of record, and just imagine how many records he could break in a career that long! :-B

I heard this kid once hit three home runs in a game at the age of -50.

Whatchu got on that, Damian Easley?

Beltre is the player in the Eric Gagne deal most likely to make the trade look bad for Boston 10 years from now.

Well, duh. We all know what happens at -33...
