"That means a higher BA (much higher - I can see +.300 pretty easily), fewer HRs, and basically neutral to slightly positive SB projection. The batting avg dilemma solved, Beltran will challenge Pooholes for fantasy MVP."
Wow. I think there's more likelihood that Beltran sprouts alien tentacles than hits 300+ in Shea, unless of course he's willing to hit for BA only and settle for 20 HR and 70 RBI. Not likely. Again, I'm having a hard time seeing anything more than 280-95-90-35-35 for him. In fact, even 280 with 35 HR would be better than he posted last year (267-38) in a more favorable hitters park.
I don't have Beltran or Pujols on my fantasy team, and I'm not a Met fan nor a Met hater, but if I had Pujols I wouldn't give a second's worth of thought that Beltran on the Mets might dethrone his MVP status, and if I had Beltran I'd be concerned that his fantasy value just took a hit.
I am the Master. Don't question the Master. Just do what he says and be proud.
