Carlos Beltran Getting Interest from Cardinals
Former Met Carlos Beltran is receiving interest from several teams including the Red Sox, Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Rays.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Beltran is being extensively looked at by the Cardinals as an offensive alternative. With Albert Pujols now in Anahiem, the Cards are looking at everyone in order to replenish their offense. If the Cardinals pickup Carlos Beltran, then its going to be interesting to see if he still has gas left in the tank (as far as the knee is concerned).
It would make more sense for Beltran to join an American League team as a DH. If the Cardinals got him on more than a 2-year deal (which may be the most he will get), then they are out of their mind.
Do you think the Cardinals will grab Beltran? Does he make more sense as a DH in the AL? What are your thoughts?
Thoughts from Joe D.:
I think it’s a good move for the Cards. Berkman goes back to first base where he belongs and a 3-4-5 of Beltran, Holliday and Berkman is still pretty impressive.
