Adrian Beltre is one of the most complete players in the game, and has been since 1998. The 36 year old third baseman has captured 4 Gold Gloves, 4 Silver Sluggers, and 4 All-Star Apperances. He is sixth on the All-time third baseman leaders in RBI and Homeruns, fourth in doubles, seventh in hits, and tenth in runs scored. Put all that together and he may be in the top ten third baseman the game has ever seen.  His career numbers are .284 average, 397 homeruns, 1,386 RBI, 2,615 hits, 1,264 runs scored, 530 doubles, and 118 stolen bases. His career hits total puts him ahead of Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt. He has more homeruns than George Brett, and Brooks Robinson. Beltre may already deserve hall of fame honors, and most certainly will when his career comes to an end.
