The Mets have two of the big fish in this year's trade pond, and we have the latest on their situations here at MLBDD. It's looking more and more likely that Reyes will stick around and Beltran won't, as the reports have trickled in over the past couple days.
- According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, some Mets officials believe that a Beltran trade could be completed well before the July 31 trade deadline. He notes that the Red Sox and Phillies have been the most aggressive suitors, but also that the Tigers have been surprisingly disinterested in pursuing the slugger. It's becoming pretty clear that the Tigers are focusing on starting pitching this summer.
