Whatever Adrian Beltre was on during the 2004 season, I want it.

    Maybe he got a tip from A-Rod and he got some Bole (or however you spell it) from the streets of the DR for it's vast energy benefits.

    It was likely a combo of contract year PLUS PEDs. You know, the pressure and all.

    2002 - 21 HR, 75 RBI, 70 R, .257 BA, .303 OBP, .426 SLG
    2003 - 23 HR, 80 RBI, 50 R, .240 BA, .290 OBP, .424 SLG
    2004 - 48 HR, 121 RBI, 104 R, .334 BA, .388 OBP, .629 SLG
    2005 - 19 HR, 87 RBI, 69 R, .255 BA, .303 OBP, .413 SLG
    2006 - 25 HR, 89 RBI, 88 R, .268 BA, .328 OBP, .465 SLG
    2007 - 26 HR, 99 RBI, 87 R, .276 BA, .319 OBP, .482 SLG
    2008 - 25 HR, 77 RBI, 74 R, .266 BA, .327 OBP, .457 SLG

    I mean, come on now. This guy had an ARod-esque (clean version) season in 2004. He hit nearly 100 points higher in 2004 than 2003, 40 more RBI, more thandoubled his R, a SLG of 200+ points higher.....? [​IMG]

    I think it's safe to say he was on the juice.

    Take this for what its worth. The year Beltre hit so well, he had something wrong with his left knee/ankle. After he hit the ball it was almost painful towatch him run around the bases.

    I remember hearing some baseball expert say then, that the fact that he was unable to fully put pressure on and use his hurt left ankle/knee, it actuallydrastically improved his swing. His balance was better, he was able to keep his weight back, and his fundamentals were all around better when his knee/anklewas injured. Beltre was always known as a player who swung out of his +#% (Adam Dunn-esque). The fact that he was hurt actually made him a better hitter.

    Now, I am not saying he didnt use steroids. But supposedly, his injury was a blessing in disguise, as it actually dramatically improved his swing. The nextseason, when he was recovered, he reverted back to his swing for the fences swing, and his stats went back to normal.
