Rumors: Carlos Beltran

According to Jon Heyman of SI, there's a "strong belief" that the best offer for Carlos Beltran may come from the Rangers. Heyman continues by saying that the major hangup on a potential deal with the Rangers is that Beltran (who has a full no-trade clause) would prefer to stay in the National League.

Analysis: There have been so many Beltran rumors that it is starting to get ridiculous. Rumors have circulated about what team he will go to, what the Mets will get in return, the asking price, and the value of his services. At this pointed I think it is best for everyone to stop the speculation and wait to react on the trade when/if it happens. As far as I'm concerned, the rumors and speculation are boring and exhausting.
