I know we all think Beckham should be an All-Star caliber 2B based on his draft position and effortless minor league success but it's pretty clear he's not that kind of player, however, considering the position he plays and the type of defense he brings, he's still a useful player at 2B.
Look at the offensive production Detroit got from it's 2B last season and they won the division. Offense from your middle infielders is nice to have, but not essential.
Love this, thanks for the data to back it up......That's what I've been telling people. Decent glove, and average offensively (for the position) for what 650k??
Also Keppy is a huge addition, as of now he's starting 3B......Brings a ton of utility and opens a lot of trade windows...
I'd like to see some fuel to the Ellsbury talks. BOS wants a SP, Floyd for Ellsbury........Possibly beckham and flowers for ellsbury and salti????
