Rumor Mill: Red Sox, Braves, and Phillies would love to acquire Carlos Beltran

According to ESPN's Buster Olney,  the Red Sox, Braves and Phillies would “undoubtedly” love to acquire Carlos Beltran, but all three clubs are distancing themselves from the teams behind them in the standings, so they could decide to acquire a second-tier bat instead of surrendering an elite prospect for Beltran.

Despite the many injuries to their starting pitchers, the Red Sox haven't begun an all-out search for rotation help, according to Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi. The Red Sox, who have checked in on Carlos Beltran, are prioritizing a right-handed hitting outfielder.

ESPN: Source, "Mets need to trade Francisco Rodriguez soon, to keep his vesting option from becoming a problem"

According to Buster Olney of  ESPN:
A rival team official believes the Mets need to trade Francisco Rodriguez soon to keep his vesting option from becoming a problem.
He's at 28 games finished now (needs 55 to vest a $17.5MM salary for next year), and the longer they keep him the less flexibility a team will have after acquiring him.
I think the Mets should rid themselves of K-Rod. At this point the way things are going , Parnell can't do any worse.

Castillo Release and Pursuit of Lefty Reliever

Do you remember?
In his Insider-only blog, Buster Olney writes that the Mets have internally discussed the possibility of simply releasing Luis Castillo. The team has repeatedly tried to free up some money by trading the second baseman, but has yet to find a taker.

Olney indicates that it's possible the Mets could drop both Castillo and Oliver Perez before Opening Day. Here are this morning's other New York-related notes:

The Mets were one of the teams pursuing Randy Choate before the southpaw signed with the Marlins, according to Newsday's Ken Davidoff. Davidoff says the Mets made Choate a one-year offer worth about $1.4MM, but the veteran lefty accepted more years and more guaranteed money from Florida.

If the Mets still intend to add a Pedro Feliciano replacement, Davidoff continues, it'll probably be someone on a minor-league deal, since the market is thinning.
