Just thought that I would add this on Beckham: I think he'll improve because he showed improvement last year. Sure, the numbers do not show that, but that's because he had an atrocious April and a bad July...but it seems that after that he seemed to figure SOMETHING out, and by the last month of the season (albeit, after some of the pressure of getting into the playoffs was gone) he seemed to grow confidence. I KNOW that he changed his stance by holding his hands a bit higher, and ever since he started doing that he's shown improvement.

Of course he hasn't shown enough that he actually can sustain that improvement, but I'm not willing to throw him into the ditch yet. At the very worst he gives you an average-to-slightly-below-average 2B's bat, and plus defense. Out of a position that league-wide isn't really filled with All-Stars, I'll take that any day of the week.

As the old adage goes however, time will tell.
