Okay, 40/40 possibilities aside, where will Beltran finish the season? If the Royals keep playing the way they are (6-10, 2 wins in their last 10 games) and fall out of the race, the Royals could trade him because they likely won't be able to afford him as he becomes the best free agent out there. Which team will win the Beltran sweepstakes if he gets traded mid-season?

Yankees--always at the top of the list and really need a centerfielder
Astros--could use a centerfielder to replace the aging bones of Biggio
Giants--how about another bat besides Bonds in the lineup?
Mariners--Randy Winn stinks in center and the M's were second in revenue to the Yankees last year, but GM Bavasi is an idiot

Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

you pretty much everyone that might be seriously interested... anyways, i think the Padres are a team that could make a run if Payton stinks it up and the're in contention for the pennant.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
