at least manny produces at mega bucks level and Sox might not want to take on Beltran..
no manny stands right now left with weak hitting team
3rd, 1st no hit, 2nd ss, rest outfield average at best.
course with 22 mil, could sign Kornerko and improve pitiching...
or play Ortiz at first and sign a mess of moderate grade hitters.
interesting off season.
The Red Sox aren't getting Beltran in return for Manny. Why would the Mets do that, plus eat Manny's contract? It's not like fantasy baseball, you'll likely only see a few prospects go to Boston, maybe with a player like Cameron or Heilman. Not Carlos Beltran.
Never say never
I've at least read about it myself, so it's not like this is just some made-up fascination of someone. I've actually seen it in print so others are mentioning it also.
Again, I'm not saying it will happen but don't be so quick to say it won't.
