What's the deal with Beltre?

Postby krunchyfrogg » Thu May 14, 2009 6:52 pm

He sucks this year. What happened to his huge year in a contract year?
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

hopefully saying this will come back to bite me, as im hoping it will, but thank god the only league i have him in has deep benches cuz ive stashed him there as no one will touch him with a 10 foot pole in that league and i can't blame them... im half tempted to just cut bait, but seriously i know hes a slow starter but come on i think its about time we stop making excuses for him and just be blunt that he has lost something to his game and that hes not the same 'slow start in april/may type guy anymore'... my honest opinion if you can get any sort of value for him right now do it by all means otherwise just let him rot on your bench and hope and pray he puts his head on straight to help you make a late season run... !+)

He actually seems to finally be heating up, however slowly. He's hitting over .300 for the last week with 1 or 2 HRs and a SB and he's actually been pretty productive over the last 2 week period.

It's just a slow start. I think he is one of the best buy low candidates there are. Look at his H/R splits the past couple of years: he should have a really nice second half once he gets traded and does not have to play half his games at SAFECO.
