With the no trade clause combined with the amount of money he's owed, we're looking at a very limited number of teams that could pick him up. Any discussion that has Beltran leaving is moot, I think.


And, most who can afford him already have an equally good option in CF. The Dodgers have Kemp and the Angels have Hunter. Even the Tigers wouldn't want to pay that contract when they have a 28 year old Curtis Granderson. In Boston, he'd obviously be an upgrade over Ellsbury, but I'm not sure they'd want to pay that contract rather than play one of their low cost homegrown players.

Really, the Yankees are the only team that I think would be interested in Beltran at this point.


Not interested in trading Beltran but the Cubs would be interested, I'm sure Texas would be, White Sox... etc


Texas just had to borrow from MLB to meet payroll, and Hicks might default on his loans for Liverpool. And they've already got a few good offensive players who can play center. So I doubt it.


Ok but the point remains for the White Sox (nearly added Peavy's contract so clearly money isn't an issue), The Cubs etc

The Holliday idea is still interesting, acer, but between Boras and a no trade clause, I don't think it makes sense even if it were possible.

Always the argument that you can just trust Beltran's health in center and hope the farm produces something that can be decent there a few years from now (Kirk? Javier Rodriguez? Puello or Fernando attempting it? Veloz's move to the outfield? Don't love the looks of this) and just signing Holliday after this season without trading for Rios, but the health scares me.
