Talk about a bright spot from 2010. Adrian Beltre, top-notch third baseman and all-around bargain, came in on a one-year contract to try and prove himself worthy of a big deal. While that hasn't exactly materialized this offseason, you can't say he didn't do everything he could. Beltre went from a big disappointment in Seattle to a big bat in Fenway:
2010 PA HR RBI BA OBP SLG Adrian Beltre 641 28 102 .321 .365 .553
Which likely explains why these predictions are so very, very bad.
|German Red Sox Fan||572||22||81||.268||.328||.479|
So that's a 3-way tie between myself, BHeebs, and theartolater, each with exactly one decent prediction.
Strike that! BHeebs and mmmmm take it with a pair of very close guesses and one perfect respectively.
A surprising season indeed.
We're still a ways from wrapping up 2010, and it'll be a while before we hit next year's projections, but for now, have a great New Years Eve, Over The Monster readers!
