The Astros will not be shooting for the division title, but the wild card. They are only 3.5 games back of the wild card, which is more than reasonable. The Astros have over 2 weeks or so to make up that ground. If they can keep close and have a chance to win the wild card, they will hold onto Beltran. But if they slip much farther back, they most likely will be looking to deal Beltran to another contender. But it is going to take a big slip for the Astros to admit they are totally out of it and give up, not with the talent they have.
