Enough about Beltran....
It would appear that having a college degree is over-rated. Apparently the only people who think Carlos Beltran is great are the ones with degrees. Interestingly enough, no one on any baseball show is talking about him. Andy makes some great points...and I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who noticed that Berkman played center. Also...has anyone noticed that Beltran didn't finish in the top 20 in any major offensive catagory. He is seriously unproven...teams make the playoffs and world series with proven players. That is why the Yankees and Braves have been so consistent, the Astros have made the playoffs with proven players, but didn't surround them with enough proven players, that is the reason that they actually have a chance to advance this year...with depth and experience...(Pettite and Clemens).
Bringing in a young unproven player will not help them.
