Something to be optimistic about with Beckham and Viciedo:
Beckham's 1st half 2013:
.335 .357 .443 .800
Viciedo's 2nd Half 2013:
.291 .327 .466 .792
Beckham injured and lagged in the 2nd half.
Viciedo injured and lagged in the 1st half.
I'm not holding out on false hope that they are superstars - but they did actually show something decent when healthy last season.
