  2. If Beckham could just hit good consistently like he is now and K less, I would like him much more. I still think Posey woulda been the better pick whether he was hitting the way he is now or if was only hitting .150 in MLB.

  3. If Beckham can make Aug = July, He is going to change a lot of valuations on him. We'll see.
