Rumors: Carlos Beltran

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Mets are looking for a big time prospect in return for Carlos Beltran. They feel they have the best hitter in a weak market.

Analysis: They are absolutely right in their thinking. Beltran is by far the best all around player available and I'm starting to think it would be foolish not to trade him. Sure, we will have to suffer for the rest of 2011, but you have to look at the big picture, and the big picture is 2012 and beyond.
