Seriously, I don't see why everyone is so down on Beltre on this forum. Maybe I'm biased because I have him on my team (I traded for him) but the man's numbers last year -- in a pitchers park, hurt most of the year, and not on a good team -- were amazing. Now, I guess it could be a fluke. Anything's possible. But do the research on the guy. He's 25. For 2004, he shortened up his swing and showed much more patience at the plate. The way I see it, this is a correction that shows he's turned a corner.
It's not true that all his years were disappointing. His first few years were actually promising and he improved each year. Then he fell into a hole between 2001 and 2003 when he was swinging at anything. I believe he has corrected this error.
In the end, it's hard to argue with Beltre's 334 BA and 48 HRs at age 25. That's better than any year Pujols had (and in some cases much better) with the exception of Pujol's BA in 2003. And let's not forget it was in LA. So yeah -- I'm extremely bullish on the guy!
