For the entire postseason of 2004, Carlos Beltran had a HRD of 6.7841. While that is a strong HRD for only twelve games, it isn’t going to produce a very good DPA. That came in at 0.8480, meaning each Beltran home run is well below one in this formula.
Beltran’s 2004 Postseason was phenomenal, as he homered in five straight games, not to mention hit six home runs in those five games. The Astros played well in games where Beltran left the yard, as they went 5-2 in those such games. Unfortunately for Houston, they fell in seven games to the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series. On the flip side, that offseason Beltran signed a 7-year, $119 million deal with the Mets.
