I think both are going to regress some, but i prefer Casey.

I agree, plus the fact that Beltre is going much higher in most drafts.

Beltre for me. More run production in that lineup.

I'll actually be picking from Beltre or McGehee in the first round of my keeper league (we kept 12 guys prior to the draft). So ADP is thrown out the window. All I'm worried about is who is better.

Beltre! He's only 31, coming off a big year and in a great situation.

Casey's a nice player but, IMO, has limited upside and is at best going to duplicate Beltre's numbers. He's 3 years younger which is nice in a keeper league but are those 3 years worth taking a risk on a player that isn't quite as good? I mean, I don't see Casey as a long-term keeper stud at 3B. But, maybe I'm wrong...the position is fairly thin.
