In fairness to Beckham, in most organizations, he wouldn't have probably seen the field in '09 or '10 so last year would have been his rookie year. At 25, there's still time of him to turn it around. I don't think he'll ever be a superstar but I can see him becoming a .270/18/80 type of player which is pretty good for a second baseman that is a plus fielder.
