That would also make absolutely no
sense unless the Cubs eat part of the contract. If they're willing to spend that kind of money why not resign Beltran?
Most of the Sosa talk involved Sweeney (actually most of the Royals trade talks involve Sweeney) and considering the Cubs have D. Lee at first and no DH spot the rumors never made any sense whatsoever.
I don't see the Royals making any sort of substantial trades unless perhaps the Padres feel the need for more crappy pitchers off of the Royals roster. They do have some extra cash to use now with Juan gone so could make a run at a pitcher like Sele, maybe Estes. What they really need is one decent power bat at a corner outfield position maybe Ray Lankford.
