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.

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!
