Beltre's Keeper Value?????

Postby RIP HB » Fri Aug 13, 2004 4:09 pm

What's your opinion on the keeper value of Adrian Beltre?
I mean, I just don't get it. Last season, he bats .240 and most of his previous seasons were unimpressive also. Then, this year he comes in and becomes a hitting machine(all done with a strained quad and bone spurs in his ankle).

At first I thought this hitting streak of his was only temporary but he just doesn't seem to be slowing down.

So what do you think of this guys keeper value? Was this year an exception or are his numbers here to stay?

If he's going to keep these types of numbers, I'll keep him(who wouldn't). Otherwise, I'm looking to trade him away before it's too late.

Well the thing with Beltre is that were not talking about some 32 year old journeymen who was never expected to produce. Beltre was supossed to hit like this. The thing is he was supposed to hit like this for the past 3 years.
Remember he got into the game VERY early and he is still quite youn(24 i think). He´s not even close to reaching his prime.
3b is quite deep but i dotn see why beltre shouldnt continue to put up stats like this for the years to come

One factor in Beltre's success is the fact that he's been surrounded by left handed hitters all season. Now more than ever with the dodgers batting 2 lefties in front of him and 2 lefties behind him.

Not saying Beltre is crap. He's good. But he's not THIS good.

and last time i checked, the player(s) batting in front or behind you did make a difference on how the game went, and how you fared.

remember geoff jenkins last year?
with the almighty richie sexon in the lineup, sometimes before,
and sometimes after him?

and look at jenkins this year - but no, that's purely a coincidence.

I think people put too much emphasis on who bats before and who bats after. Sure it could help or hurt a very little, but look at beltres numbers. I harly doubt those are because he is surrounded by certain hitters

I think he is this good, if its just a matter of putting him in a sweet spot the Dodgers will do that. I mean early in the season Beltre was the only one doing anything for the Dodgers and he still was hitting
