getting rid of Jimmy Williams was the best thing that ever happened to Houston and Beltran. Carlos is stealing a base almost every game now (even with a sore knee, I might add), and the Astros are now within 4 or 5 games of the wildcard.
Beltran will surpass 40-40 easily this year. 4 steals in one month is practically a given. 10 is not out of reach at all. 5 HRs in one month is a definite possibility, and if he stays hot, I could see as many as 12. Honestly, I could see Beltran going 40-45 or even 43-50 this season.
