I don't care if he is ever awesome again. He is one guy I will absolutely avoid for the rest of my life. What a bust.
When did we start considering 25 year olds busts?
Beltre will be fine. He'll have an entire season in the AL under his belt, where he saw the pitching, the parks, the whole shebang. Give him another season or two and we may see some seasons ranging near what he did last year, if not matching them. I don't think it was a fluke in the slightest.
I don't believe that. Even at 25, I don't think he ever repeats that year.
How bout in the final year of his contract?
