Last I heard, he was handing out his Beltran isn't a 1st rounder flyers. Maybe he's stuck in KC. 8-o

Perhaps you'll think I'm nuts, but if you can get number one pick value for Beltran now--or more--than trade him.

Yes, he's a stud and will put up HUGE numbers, but this won't continue.

Plus, if he's traded, he could have trouble adjusting, or say he goes to Yankee stadium and as an Arod-like power loss as is common among righthanders in the stadium.

Just a thought.

I agree with you, his value can't possibly get any higher right now. And if the season started today, I think Beltran would be drafted first in the majority of leagues. That means you could probably get any player in the league, AND another QUALITY player in a trade. I would trade him, if I owned him.

true, but I really don't see any reason he can't keep it up either. If your team is realtively set -- keep him. need to get a lot of quality back, trade him.

he has hit 25 hr's in the past two seasons, and stole over 35 bases. he hit over three hundred last year and has scored over 100 runs and rbi in both of those seasons. he is entering his prime this year, and last year he missed abotu 110 ab's. I don't see why people insist that he "can't keep it up". Why not? his career is spiking, not declining and his past two seasons show he is quality. I don't think he will hit 40 hr's, but I don't see 35 out of the question. I think 45 sb's is more than obtainale as well.

Isn't Beltran a switch hitter?

touche. What can I say? It was early.

Nonetheless, I'd trade him if I could get peak value.
