I thought I'd be the first to post what will certainly be a hot topic for fantasy owners: what will Beltran's fantasy value be as a Met?
Personally, I don't see how his value doesn't take a hit. I'm skeptical that Willie will let the Mets shiny new $115M superstar run enough to post 40 steals. On the hitting side, Shea is not a good hitters park, and their line-up is questionable at this point in time (they could certainly improve it with Delgado or another thumper).
Beltran's lifetime stats in Shea are .176 in 6 games and 17 at-bats. granted, that's not enough at-bats to draw any conclusions, but that's gotta give some pause.
I'm thinking he goes 280-95-90-35-30 next year. Definately top numbers, but far behind his projections in Houston.
What sayeth the soothsayers?
