MLB Trade Rumors: Carlos Beltran To Boston Red Sox 'Might Be Tough,' Says Buster Olney

The MLB trade rumors are not subsiding over the weekend, particularly when it comes to Carlos Beltran. The New York Mets outfielder has plenty of suitors, but ESPN's Buster Olney reports that not all teams have an equal chance at picking him up in a deadline deal.

The Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants are all in the running for Beltran, according to Buster Olney, but the ESPN reporters indicates that Boston might be falling behind the others interested simply to due to the two teams not exactly having what the other needs to complete the deal.

The reason the Red Sox would be interested, of course, is due to J.D. Drew being more than a little underwhelming this season. If the Boston front office isn't able to put together a decent crop of prospects in exchange for Beltran, however, it makes sense that the Mets would be quick to move on to one of the many other teams interested.

Either way, it looks like Beltran will be traded somewhere.
