The thing is, if you look at Abreu's last three years, they are pretty consistent. Yes, last year was his best, but most stats remained pretty close to the same. Beltran is kinda all over the place and is really pretty darn young to prove anything.

I'm still not sure why Beltran picked NY over Houston. It appears only that money could have been his motivation and somebody who's motivated by a few extra million dollars over that long of a period of time I get a little concerned with.

Also, last year he was incredibly streaky. I know because I had him on several of my teams and the guy would just kill me for weeks on end and then make up for it all within 4 days. Streaky players have a tendency to be less disciplined than their consistent counterparts and are subject to "outside" issues.

For my money, I can't see myself taking Abreu in the top 3-4 picks like everybody will take Beltran, but I certainly couldn't say that Beltran is going to outproduce Abreu.

the good thing about him going to Texas is he could play DH if needed
