Pulled this off an article on ESPN. It'll be a real kick in the balls to have to watch him in pinstripes next year. :Lin:

Yankees officials weren't available following DePodesta's announcement. Principal owner George Steinbrenner, president Randy Levine and GM Brian Cashman were in Tampa, Fla., meeting with free-agent center fielder Carlos Beltran. An offer to Beltran was not made, although one is expected to come at a later date. Beltran is scheduled to meet with other teams.

He is an incredible talent, but IMO he was never a Royal. He was in the line-up and wore the uniform but he was not dedicated to the KC Royals. He was always about Beltran, even though he was the second best talent to ever wear the uniform. From the time he got hurt in his Rookie year, he defied the team instructions for rehab. He was a "me guy". Just like Johnny Damon.

This is inevitable. Look for both him and Johnson to end up playing for those pricks.

If only the Yankmees had made to the WS this year. I think the Cards would have taken them. Probably my last chance to see any team I like win it all in baseball.

At least they didn't get Randy Johnson... for now.

Not much of a suprise there after the Johnson deal fell though for now. Gave them a chance to focus their cash elsewhere for now.

Hopefully the Cards will still have a shot at it over the next few seasons. The big spending doesnt screw them as bad since they are in the NL.

Yeah, and they do have a decent payroll. But it's still less than half of New York's. Upon the completion of Scumbrenner's orgy of greed, it'll be about a third. :shake:

Along with Boston, The Angles are quickly geting up there too. They may be up to 120 mil by the end of this offseason. Really sucks for AL fans because there is very little chance another team could get though that shit to make the WS.

Baseball is a tough sport to watch without the Cap. As a Dodger fan I shouldn't complain about it because we spend the max and don't know how to spend it all.

GO LA

Baseball does not just need a cap it needs true revenue sharing.

If baseball ever had a cap, the Yankees would probally fold not knowing how to build a team of lesser talent.
