On Carlos Beltran, I'd you add 5 years to each side of his productive career (1994 to 2021),he comes in 11th in FG WAR.

The first eligible we haven't elected in Abreu, his peak isn't ahead of Beltran or career. Next are the criminally overlooked Lance Berkman and Brian Giles, guys with potentially comparable peaks, but less career value.

To comments on David Ortiz, I think the DH penalty is a bit stiff, give him WAR back here +playoff value and I like him as a candidate, though I agree with those touring Berkman, better peak, less career.

On Tommy John, extreme pitch to contact hurler that is loved by FIP and Thress WAR, adds clutch and playoff value, I'm convinced he belongs.
