All Beltre. All the time.

I don't care about the fact he's put 2/3rds of the starting outfield on the DL.

He's got some weird aversion to having his head touched? No problem.

He plays the hot corner sans protective cup?

He's a grown man; he wants to take the chance a line drive renders him sterile? It's a free country.

All I know is he's a human hoover at third, has a swing tailor-made for Fenway Park, and anyone who can bang a home run over the Green Monster while swinging with one knee on the ground is a leading candidate to replace Mike Tyson as the official "Baddest Man on the Planet".

He's the reason why the Red Sox lost 6-5 tonight instead of 6-2 and I wouldn't blame him one bit if he stuffed Bill Hall in the laundry room for "admiring" his Home Run shot earlier in the game that turned out to be just a really impressive single.

Give him 4 years, $40 million in the off-season Theo, give Youk some mental security at first, and let's put a stop to the revolving infield, at least for a couple of years.
