You can say that about literally 99% of utility infielders. When they're hot, they can help carry the offense. Well no kidding. The problem is that Beckham's hot streaks come seasons apart.
He's done nothing outside of his rookie season to prove he's an everyday player.
I wouldn't mind giving Semien 600 PAs next season to see what he can do. If a good chunk of those come at Beckham's expense, so be it.
