    Red Sox not willing to give up what Mets want for Beltran

    From MLBTraderumors.com:
    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/

  2. The Red Sox aren't willing to part with the prospects the Mets want, according to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com. The Mets are interested in Josh Reddick, Ryan Kalish, Jose Iglesias, Anthony Ranaudo, Felix Doubront and Will Middlebrooks, according to Edes. Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald hears that the Red Sox are focusing on internal solutions, particularly Reddick.

    I'm sure they don't want all 6; more like 1 or 2 from that list; 6 other teams want him, so the Mets would get over it.

    Maybe, just maybe Theo is involved in negotiations to drive up the price of Beltran.

    Beltran is not the answer, Reddick is, and is in the fold. Beltran, please forget him.

    Why? The Yankees aren't interested; the reports were that the Phillies & RS are the chief contenders; the others being Detroit, SF, Pitt, Cin, Cle, Atl, and a couple of others.

    Who says the Mets aren't interested in a combination of those guys for Reyes.

    How would this lineup look?

    Ellsbury
    Reyes
    Gonzo
    Youk
    Petey
    Papi
    Reddick
    Crawford
    Salty

    If the Mets want Middlebrooks/Inglesias plus Weiland, pull the trigger. Throw in Hsuang and or Jacobs.

    To get Reyes the Sox would probably have to give up Ellsbury, Reddick, Pedroia, Lester, and maybe John Henry.

    I think Iggy/Ranaudo/Doubront could hypothetically get it done...or even a Iggy/Ranaduo/Kalish.......hypothetically.  I kinda like the idea of Iggy though for multiple reasons.

    We can't afford to pay every player 20 million dollars, I like having a guy making nothing playing SS, he's a defensive wizard and who knows he may even possibly hit his offensive ceiling and become a gap .270-280 hitter.  The money not spent on Reyes can be used to upgrade other positions in coming years (or retaining players)

    I wouldn't trade any two of those prospects (and I don't consider Reddick a prospect) for a short term rental of Beltran. In my humble, however jaundiced opinion, the Red Sox should stop talking to the Mets about him. He is not needed.

    Ridiculous.  The price will never be nearly that high and each day it drops.  The buying team is potentially buying a rental only.  As such, there is no way what you write even has a hint of truth.

    Forger Reyes, too. The Mets aren't going to trade him.

    I haven't lost all faith in Drew. I could see him popping up in the playoffs with some timely hits. The line up, as it is, should be strong enough to score runs without Drew contributing. That's why I think pitching is more of an issue. Drew and Crawford have shown they can get the job done. They might not actually do it, but they're capable of it. A pitcher on the DL will give you nothing for sure.

    Focus in on Hanley-- forget Reyes.  Iglesias, and two other prospects could get it done.  Marlins are not going anywhere this season and getting rid of Hanley's contract plus getting a top Cuban prospect is apealing to the Miami Marlins in 2012.

    i wouldnt trade any of those guys for 3 months of Beltran, besides the sox need starting pitching more than they need offensive help, get Guthrie from the O's if possible for the right price. he'd be a nice 5th starter

    I agree that a pitcher is more important right now.I'm not sure the O's will trade Guthrie within the division though.Maybe Hiroki Kuroda from the Dodgers is an option that would work out well for both teams.

    Re: Red Sox not willing to give up what Mets want for Beltran

    The way Reddick is playing diminishes the need to acquire Beltran or any rightfielder. Carlos is a switch hitter who is better from the left side. Free agent next year. Would love to have Reyes at short , but cannot see the Mets trading him. They are having money problems, but they are still a big market team that cannot just dismantle their club. I think their dealing KRod and Beltran is to free up some dollars to re sign Reyes. Reyes is easily their best player , and extremely popular with the fans.

    They'd have to get Henry's wife, too, and the Mets aren't looking for that kind of baggage.

    forget beltran and forget reyes. If the sox plan to trade for a hitter, the guy they should get is hunter pence. Perfect fit for this team. Solid right handed hitting outfielder in his prime with a cannon for an arm.

    He has 4 extra base hits in 220 at bats at AAA.  Everyone that wants Iggy would be horrified if he came up and hit 210 with no homers.  People act like Alex Gonzalez couldn't hit. Gonzalez has 145 career homers.  Iggy makes Gonzalez look like Babe Ruth.

    I would trade for a starting pitcher at this point, and let Reddick play everyday in RF. If Reddick slumps you still have Drew who at least has been decent in the past and he is healthy (ahem, physically healthy).

    Our starting pitching is teetering on the brink of dissolve.

    Oh I agree with you, I don't think most people could stomach that.  Personally I could, Defense at SS has more value than great defense at other positions...and a team that virtually leads the league in every offensive category has the capacity to make that sacrifice.  I'm also running under the assumption that Iglesias should be able to blossom into a hitter that can replace Scutaro or close to it (offensively).  Iggy is a stud with the glove, he'll take away a LOT of hits and that will make up for a lot of the offensive production he lacks...and I expect that Lowrie will hang around and possibly even Scutaro's option exercised and platoons with Lowrie for another season or half a season.....if Iggy needs more seasoning.

    I still stand by my point, giving the youngsters a chance at their prospective positions.  Reddick-RF, Lavarnway C/DH, Salty-C, Iggy-SS, Doubront-p/rp.....but your right will lower their opinion of him if he comes up and hits .230 If makes sense too the team will only have around 35(-+5) million to play with next year with holes to fill in RF,SS and possibly even DH with the year after only losing dice-k's contract and still having holes at C and CF on the horizon.  I like the financial flexibility the youngsters allow and I think most of them are ready for their roles (Iglesias needs a little more time)

    I believe he comes off the D.L. tomorrow, so lets see how the rest of his season goes.
