We all know Carlos Beltran and the NY Mets was a divorce waiting to happen, the only question was where he going to land. Well, San Francisco is the only suicidal team… so that’s his destination.
The trade will be for a top prospect who is likely to be Zack Wheeler, a right-handed pitcher taken in the first round of the 2009 draft, which was ludicrous to me.
Beltran was in his last year of the seven year deal with the Giants and this trade was a sure thing waiting to happen. Apparently Beltran already gave his teammates a farewell dinner, according to some sources.
