Beltran expects to be a Met

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There have been reports that the Boston Red Sox were interested in a trade with the New York Mets for Carlos Beltran, but the outfielder’s agent, Scott Boras, denied there’s been any communication in regards to his client.

“His plan right now is to be a New York Met," Boras said. "He has a no-trade clause, so if anything were brought to him, I think it would depend on what the situation was. I would say certainly now his expectation is to be a Met next year.”
