Funny, but it would be nice if you offered a lil more insight, along with sarcasm.

Yes, they moved them back for their young pitchers. Last year, Kaufman was the AL version of Coors.

what i think people are missing is that beltran is still getting better and better and better. he is heading into the prime of his career, and i just dont see why he isnt capable of hitting 40 HR's.

Swinger is sarcastic but right.

There's no reason at all to think that Beltran can hit 33% more home runs this year than he has in any past year.

I think 30 / 50 is far more likely than 40 /40.

You have to remember this guy is only 190 lbs.

All off season I've been saying he'll go 30/50.........I guess we'll see if it happens. He certainly has the speed and power to do so, but the only question is if he gets the green light. The 30 HR will be the hard part, not the 50 SB's. He's quite possibly the best base stealer in the game.
