Rumor Mill: Teams are calling about Carlos Beltran, Maybe Red Sox ???


According to Kevin Kernan of the Ny Post, All indications are that the Mets are moving forward, trying to initiate talks to get Jose Reyes signed to a long-term deal while at the same time they are beginning to accept calls on Carlos Beltran and their group of relievers for hire, highlighted by Francisco Rodriguez.

“People are calling,” a Mets source told The Post last night about Beltran before the Mets won their fourth straight without Reyes, beating the inept Dodgers, 5-3 at Dodger Stadium as they moved three games over .500.

As for Beltran, he is being a complete professional about his situation and realizes he is nearing the end of the road as a Met. He has met with agent Scott Boras to discuss his future and talk about trade possibilities.

The Red Sox could wind up a landing place for the slugger, who upped his hitting streak to 11 games with a fourth-inning double. The Red Sox could stick Beltran in right field, and general manager Theo Epstein has told reporters that adding a bat is more important than adding pitching right now.
“If a trade happens, I’m prepared for it,” Beltran told The Post. He said teams have called Boras to check in on the situation. “But,” Beltran added, “it’s still too early because we have a ways to go before the trade deadline.
General manager Sandy Alderson said that “it’s still a little bit early” to make deals. He said the Mets remain “relevant” in the wild-card race and he is right, you can’t back up the truck just yet.

Thole trying to catch on early


Josh Thole has showed up early to Mets camp simply because he knew he had to get a head start to compete for starting catchers job, even though he has been penciled in as the starter by Terry Collins.

“It was exciting to get out here and be around the guys,’’ Thole told Kevin Kernan of The NY Post Tuesday, at the Mets complex here in Port St. Lucie after catching Chris Capuano during a bullpen session.

Kevin Kernan asked him what he expected from himself this year, Thole said, “I don’t want to come in with an attitude that says, “You’re going to catch every day.”

“I’ve got to come in with the mentality that I’ve always come in with. I know I still have to win a job,’’ Thole said. “If I come out, and don’t play well in the spring on back on the way to Buffalo. Something I try to pride myself on is getting ready and coming down here a week early, just to get acclimated and get my feet wet is important.’’
