Okay, here's the Adrian Beltre story ever year. He sucks from April till about July/August when the Dodgers acquire somebody to push him at 3B. Last year, it was Tyler Houston. This year, it is Robin Ventura. Then, Beltre gets as hot as any 3B not named Pujols, the Dodgers get excited and say the kid has finally reached his potential, but he sucks ass again in April, until the Dodgers acquire somebody new in the summer.
That being said, I'm probably gonna start him over Aramis Ramirez, who's only hit 2 homers with a few more RBIs, while he's hot.
Here are Beltre's August and July stats for the last few years:
July 2002: .300, 6 homers, 18 RBI
August 2002: .320, 4 homers, 15 RBI
July 2001: .235, 5 homers, 16 RBI
August 2001: .304, 1 homer, 9 RBI (dunno what happened this year)
July 2000: .296, 2 homers, 15 RBI
August 2000: .368, 5 homers, 22 RBI
Here's to a repeat of August 2000!
