having money to spend elsewhere and not necessarily on him. IMO, as good as he's been lately, he doesn't fit I for us. He needs to sign with a team that has LF/RF/DH spot available in the American League. If he wants 3 years at that age and looking for 10+ mil a year that's his best fit.
Now, if we are being mentioned as being interested, then we appear to have 10-15 mil a year to go towards a player, even after arbitration raises and not trading BP yet. I think we need to go after a CF with some pop like Granderson, or another guy via trade with a sizeable contract already, that has a high OBP, alittle pop, and right handed.
I hope that's what this is really telling us, because I don't see Beltran a fit, but maybe that's their way of letting us know there is that kind of money to spend.
