Someone said something earlier about Beltre being on the roids. Looking at the home \ away splits from his years in Seattle versus his years in Boston & Arlington, it definitely looks like the Parks lead to his rise. While his away numbers from his last years in Seattle and from recent years with the Rangers they barely changed (They were actually higher in Seattle, probably because of having Arlington instead of Safeco as an away park). Meanwhile, he OPSed at over 1 at home last season, and near .900 in 2012. so It’s a big no for me on the roids.
