Rumor Mill: Carlos Beltran will likely be moved this week, Fire Sale afterwards?


According to Andy Martino of the Daily News,  the Mets' strong preference is to move Carlos Beltran to another team several days before next Sunday's trade deadline, but the garage sale likely will stop there.

According to a source with the direct knowledge of the team's thinking, it is "unlikely" that players other than Beltran will be traded, and there is "no activity on any other player at the moment."

Because of Beltran's continued health and production, the Mets believe that they can wrangle a top prospect from Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco or another suitor.

Rumors : Reyes playing for another team next year ?, Possible Fire Sale?


All signs point to Jose Reyes playing for a team other than the Mets in 2012, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. Sherman talked to five non-Mets executives and not one expects to see New York re-sign Reyes. As we heard yesterday from SI.com's Jon Heyman, Reyes' OBP will be a major consideration as the Mets contemplate their future with the shortstop.

In a separate piece, Sherman wonders whether we'll see a full-fledged FIRE SALE from the Mets, with the Wilpons attempting to keep control of the team. Two rival execs that spoke to Sherman said it would be wise for the organization to cut payroll nearly in half for 2012.
