I just traded a lot for him. I'm wondering what people's thoughts on him are.
My hair's turnin' white, my neck's always been red, my collar's still blue
We've always been here tryin' to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say we've always been red white and blue

I got him yesterday for Winn and Benson which I think is a steal. I also think he will have a great season once he finds his grove. As long as you didn't sell the farm to get him you should get a very nice return on your investment.
He is a 5 tool players. In terms of fantasy production, he's definitely a top 25 player in a league that has the steals category. I don't really like him though since he's not as good in real life as he is in fantasy baseball. He's not a perenial .300 hitter and he's never actually been a 30-30 guy. He's very streaky. Overall I'd take him for my team but I hate him and all other players who suck in real life.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
i think you bench beltran for a bit until he gets it going. fortunately, on teh team i've got him on, i've also got vlad, manny, burrell, carlos lee, and ibanez. suffice to say, beltran can have a week or two off and my team should be ok.
