Tony Clark is my son wrote:Beltran is overrated. He does what Bobby Abreu does EVERY YEAR, but Bobby goes unnoticed. Don't get me wrong, Beltran's postseason was unimaginably good, but the thing that scares me is his .267 average. (Abreu consistantly hits .300)
apparently not many people agree with this, which is fine....I wish you were all in my league.
Just because everyone SAYS Beltran is the best doesn't make him the best.
He's never been hyped as the #1 overall player until he came off a magical post season and signed a huge contract in the #1 media market
Abreau jsut does it every year...power and average, and 40 SB's last year.
Granted his numbers could go down, but so could Beltran's.
We judge based on past history, and there is no getting around Abreau has the better track record
