Terry Collins is aware of the chatter in the papers and on sports talk radio regarding Carlos Beltran, but he doesn’t want the negativity creeping into his locker room. “We’ve got guys that are playing for jobs,” said Collins. “The minute they give up or quit, they won’t be here next year.”
Carlos Beltran is having the type of season that could net him a nice payday in free agency. The cash-strapped Mets are unlikely to sign him after this season, and it sounds like Beltran knows a trade is probably in the cards.
