Izzy did it again. And not only that but Parnell rebounded to post an uneventful 8th.
But the big news is Beltran is still a Met. If you’re tracking the situation the Phils look as though they’re starting to fade from contention.
Apparently the Giants and Rangers have pulled ahead of the Braves as well. Sounds good to me if we can get him out of the division all the better.
BMF will listen to the reports of who’s closer and further from making a deal but I can’t put much stock in any of these digital rumors.
It’ll be interesting to see how Alderson plays this negotiation. Smart money sez Beltran’s value will rise the closer we get to the deadline especially since he’s far and away the best available bat.
I realize both the Phils and Braves could benefit from his bat but you have to imagine neither would be a quick to give us a top prospect who might beat them for years to come.
