From Wright Thompson for ESPN, a heartbreaking and very lengthy but very very good account of the life and death of Gregory Halman.

Which Gordon Beckham Will Show Up In 2011?

7

Following a standout rookie season in 2009 that featured a .270/.347/.460 batting line with 14 homers and 63 runs driven in, expectations were understandably high for Gordon Beckham last year. Instead of continuing on the path to stardom, Beckham struggled out of the gate and was staring at a .182/.285/.234 batting line with just five extra base hits (four doubles and a homer) on the morning of May 22nd. Many fantasy owners jumped ship, but those that stuck with him were rewarded. Starting with the game played on May 22nd, Beckham hit a much more respectable .283/.332/.443 the rest of the way. Move our arbitrary endpoint up a month to June 28th, and Beckham hit .313/.377/.502 with seven homers in the final 225 plate appearances of his season. That’s the guy everyone was expecting, and that’s the guy we’re all hoping to get in 2011.
