Carlos Beltran has an excellent chance of being a Hall of Famer and it all began in Kansas City.  In 1999, Beltran took over the starting Centerfield job and the third spot on the batting order.  Not surprisingly, Beltran would win the Rookie of the Year in the AL and he would belt 20 Home Runs and 100 RBIs in all of full seasons with Kansas City. 

Beltran provided excellent defense for the Royals and great speed as he went over 35 Stolen Bases four times with KC.  Sadly for the Royals and their fans the in the 2000’s the team was in the midst of their small market doldrums and were unable to afford what would become a rich (and deserved) contract.
