I don't think Beltran gradually declines this season, as his numbers were pulled down hitting half of the year at Shea for the past 4 years. Problem solved. In Soriano's case, if he can shake off the nagging leg injuries, even if his SB start to sag, he still has it in him to knock 30-35 homers.
i dont really think beltran declines THIS season in particular, but im just saying i could see it happen. i actually remember saying something to the beltran owner in my money league about how quiet a year he was having (he agreed) and then he ended up with very solid numbers. instead of declined, i probably should have used peaked.
as for soriano, i agree he can easily finish with 30-35 homers, but his days of high sb outputs are over, and his rbi/run collective totals always are lower than the others who are drafted around him.
