  1. I don’t see how Beckham is draftable. I can understand someone speculating on Altuve, but Beckham has firmly established himself as below replacement level.

  2. Who’s to say Beckham can’t be 2012’s Alex Gordon??? There’s a chance. However, with Altuve, there is no chance.

  3. it’s impressive how Beckham has gotten worse in just about every way each season.

  5. I don’t know that he’s firmly established himself as anything, let alone below replacement level. He had a strong rookie year, so it isn’t as though he’s never been successful in the majors, and he’s just 25. I don’t love him, but neither so am I ready to bury him in the backyard.

    The question of draftability is really one of league depth. 8 team mixed? You’re right, no way he’s draftable. 14-team AL-only? Not only is he draftable, be glad you got him, because at least he has upside. 14-team mixed? Now it’s an issue of preferences.

  6. His fielding has gotten better, second base seems much more his speed than third and he’s now had two full seasons there. As far as his offensive stats, there’s typically something that mitigates a player’s slide, but with Beckham, it’s pretty much going wrong across the board.

  7. With Beckham, I just want to believe that he magically undoes all the wrongs he did last season… then again, I’m doing the same with Adam Dunn. Gulp.

  8. Re: Beckham:

    For those grasping for something to believe in, there’s a new coaching regime in Chicago. Ventura was a great infielder, hopefully he’ll rub off a little on Beckham. I just don’t think Beckham learned much from Ozzie (or the hitting coach greg walker) for that matter. Hopefully a change helps.
