A few days ago in the Boston Herald, columnist Michael Silverman pitched the idea of Carlos Beltran going to the Boston Red Sox.
It was just a suggestion, but the Full Count blog squashed any rumors before they could get started.
From WEEI’s Full Count blog…
A major-league source said that the Mets would not even entertain the idea of trading Beltran. The Mets are instead giving every indication that they will be active in adding pieces this offseason (New York is expected to get involved in the markets for Bay and/or Matt Holliday). Given that likelihood, it would not make sense for the team to deal one of its best players.
Don’t worry, Beltran fans. He’s not going anywhere but back out to centerfield in Citi Field for at least another year.
