You have to realize, though, that there are much fewer players who steal 30 bases each year than hit 30 homeruns. Beltran is a productive player, someone you'd want as your second most productive, in HR and RBI, while stealing those 30 bases you normally get from over-valuing Juan Pierre.
I agree with you, however. I would not touch Beltran until, at the best, the late first round. I always feel your top pick has to be a player who produces a lot of runs while hitting for a high average, something Beltran does not do. Plus, I hate the Mets from a fantasy standpoint. You always see solid fantasy players drift into the fantasy oblivion when they join the Mets, ala Mo Vaughn, Cliff Floyd, etc.
