Mr. Steady Beltran for me in 09, but if this is a keeper, it would easily be Upton.

With the vote as it stands now, I think this is the last round of Holliday debates. Make the most of it. ;-D

I can't believe that Holliday has gotten this many votes. Uncertainty alone should prevent him from being the 4th best OF.

Holiday his SBs are pretty valuable and and he has a pretty good line up.
I like Beltran right behind him, they are basically the same player but Holiday is younger.

Holliday without question.

Beltran is OK, but his power is on a bit of a slide, and his speed should start going soon. 2005 is recent enough for me to remember.

Holliday owns elite power, and if he can lift a few more flyballs it could be HR Armageddon for the AL West.
Also what Dan said is exactly right, beyond Lackey, Ervin and Felix the AL West pitching looks real tasty.

;-D

Also - Beltran and McLouth are nearly the same guy except McLouth is peaking and Beltran is slowly going backwards.
Would you have McLouth as the 4th OFer at the moment? No.

A lot of Beltran's value comes from his consistent RBI and run totals. He's one of the most solid run-scorers in baseball and is sitting in the middle of one of baseball's best lineups. A comparison between him and McLouth is wrong.
