referred to the fact that Nady at 3B isn't really a ton more valuable than Nady at OF. If Nady stays healthy (which is big if, considering his history), he'd likely get you Beltre-ish numbers. Not exactly the most EPIC pickup...
I'd say he has the same talent as Beltre but on a much better team. If Beltre was traded to the yankees and started at third id consider him an epic pick uup too. 3B with 300ish avg's 90+ rbi's and 20+homers are great pickups.
Those numbers are good, but I'm not sure if he could hit them. He struggled a bit once he got to NY, and he's always been a better first half guy and somewhat of an injury risk. You know what though? If he did take over third, you're right, he would be a nice little pickup.
Wait, why am I talking about this?
