Collins Thinks Trading Beltran Sends Wrong Message

A week ago I wondered about the possibilty of not trading Carlos Beltran, but instead keeping him and trying to work out a 2-year deal. You can read that below.

The question doesn’t appear to be “if,’’ but “when,’’ the Mets will deal outfielder Carlos Beltran.
