Why is there no love for Beltran?

Beltran is one the mose efficient base stealers around, weighing in at a 90-95% success rate. He is healthy enough right now to steal 2 bases a night, if he choses to (or if Randolph choses him to).

Rickey Henderson would not steal if he was hitting in front of Carlos Delgado AND David Wright.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now. Ricky was a machine on the bases and with a guy like Randolph behind him I think the only time he wouldn't have the green light was if he was on 3rd base. Moving on, Beltran is the man. And it's crazy to argue who's a much better hitter, between the top 10 or so hitters. I think it's really all about style. Last season I had the chance between Pujols and Beltran in a keeper and you know who I took...Beltran. I was chasing the hr/sb potential I thought he could put up. I think everyone deserves a pass on a season unless they suffer a horrible injury (tommy john or kendall's nightmare). And in real life, Boston probably would love the opportunity to move Manny for Beltran. And that's because Beltran plays solid defense and he swings a good bat.
Who says I can't be a Yankees and Mets fan???
