Mets Contact Boras; Would Consider Bringing Beltran Back In 2012

I loved this column from Bob Klapisch of The Record, where he sums up the sentiments and feelings of Carlos Beltran’s final moments at Citi Field in a Mets uniform.

Baseball Musings: Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Ken Rosenthal reports the Red Sox and Phillies have been the most persistent thus far. That may be true and I’m not discounting that, however I […]
