Beltran should be a 2nd rounder next year. I just don't see his upside sliding any further. Nagging injuries and his struggles hitting at Shea figured in, but Beltran is surely a top 10 OF in my book, top 5 really. I'd take Holliday, Sizemore, and Soriano over Beltran, but he and Crawford are fairly close in value in my mind while I prefer Beltran over Vlad and Carlos Lee.
