Default Texas Rangers 2020 (and beyond?)

For anyone with a subscription to the Athletic, Adrian Beltre comes in at 52 in one writer's countdown of the top 100 players in MLB history.

Another nugget that's fun to read about - a recap of how and why Trout is the GOAT of the 2010's but their team has sucked.

I definitely agree.. Love Beltre but I'd have a hard time putting him that high. The reality was that he was only a good player throughout most of his career. Yes, he had a great 7 year stretch towards the end of his career.. I love Beltre. His WAR is extremely high.. this is obviously what gets him high on the list. However, he was rarely one of the best 2-3 players in the game at any point in his career. His greatness in large part is his long career. He played at a high level for 20 years. I guess it depends on what you value. A greater peak or more consistency over a long period of time..
