If Beckham can play great 3B, Hit .270/15/70 that's fine for me at 3B.
I'll take into next year......move rios, get a catcher. Napoli would be nice.
Thats fine, but since we are just making stuff up (because Beckham is not close to a .270 hitter) why not say if Viciedo can just become an average 3b, and hit .270/35/90 thats fine for me too?
Beckham's ONLY value is that he is a solid glove at 2b. By moving him to 3rd, you diminish his value immensely because 3b is not a defensive first position, but one that requires value both defensively and offensively.
