Here's the list of guys with 450/3000
If you add Beltre to that list in 2018ish, I don't see how he doesn't get in. Especially when you consider the fact that he's been a great defensive 3rd baseman on top of the offense.
I thought that you and all your new-age advanced stats eschewed the tradition old "counting" stats and were all about the advanced "rate" stats.
Yet here you are, counting home runs and hits and ignoring OPS+.
I thought we had also moved past the point where there are certain "magic numbers" for compiled stats that get you into the HOF. No?
