KC really can't trade Beltran , not while they are in contention for the AL central and, with the level of talent in the central, KC never will be out of contention.


Thats true, but you gotta agree that the smart way would definetly be not to let him go to the FA but to get some prospects for him at least. They need something. As Peter Gammons said "They have NO CHANCE of resigning this guy."

Just wait...Steinbrenner will start to panic and spend all the money he needs to get another All-Star pitcher on his team. Pedro? Big-Unit? Zito, Mulder and Hudson all at once? If someone's gonna pull of something ridiculous like that, it's him! :-b

how the hell could the Yankees afford to pay Beltran as a FA next year? He will be looking for $15-17 million a year. ;-7


And Vidro will be in a Sox uniform next year if they don't sign Nomar...and you can put that to the bank. :-)

What prospects do the yanks have to trade? if they trade Beltran, they lose any trust they regianed with their fan base by resigning sweeney and contending last year.

As good as Beltran is he is no Alex and no Pujols. He is not a $15 million player. I'd say between $9-12 million.

The Yankees can afford anyone.

god like the yankees need another all star. I hope they wont get Beltran, but I bet they will. They always pull some crap like this off. And they can afford to pay beltran whatever he wants.

Beltran said in an interview he likes it quite and likes to walk around without anyone knowing who he is. If he comes to NY - that's gone.

So, he may go elsewhere. Who knows.

Back to the topic for a moment - I've been entertaining offers for AROD and have gotten nothing decent. Nothing worthy of the guy picked #1. If you have Yankee that you want to trade and his name isn't Vazquez, Brown or Posada I say you have to wait. It stinks.
