Jon Heyman reports the “Rangers interested in Beltran as well as K-Rod… Could be a big trade partner for Mets”
If that’s the truth I say we move on either/both of these deals asap. I realize the Wilpons are hoping to be “in the hunt” so they can make a few extra bucks in ticket sales but let’s be honest - that’s a farce. We ain’t making no playoffs - no way no how.
So if we can move Beltran and K-Rod I don’t even care what we net in return. I wish it weren’t like this but the broke ass Wilpons may have to let Reyes walk away so relieving ourselves of K-Rod’s 17M next year and about 1/2 of Beltran’s salary this year - providing we move him soon.
This is the money we need to allocate to Reyes next year. I don’t care about this season. I only care about building a winner within 2-3 years and to do so we need to retain Reyes.
Prospects in return would be great but let’s dump these salaries and put some money in the coffers to pay Jose.
