Mets eyeing Soriano
"It was termed a routine scouting mission by Mets' officials, who insisted there's no reason to raise an eyebrow. Still, Dave Engle, the club's
western region bird dog, was in Arlington this weekend, monitoring, among other things, the irrepressible Alfonso Soriano. Does this mean the Mets are
still interested in the former Yankee, now batting .302? Yes and no."
There'll Be A Lineup For Beltran
"The Yankees' best shot at Beltran, however, would be in the off-season. Their farm system lacks the level of prospects the Royals could get from
other interested teams such as the Padres, Dodgers, Angels, Tigers and even the Red Sox."
Red Sox unlikely to sign Boone
"Youkilis' ongoing status as the organization's top on-base prospect and third baseman of the future shoots holes in a rumor printed in the New York
Post (attributed to `industry scuttlebutt') that the Sox are trying to sign former Yankees third baseman Aaron Boone."
Boone may return to Yankees
"Speaking of which, our gut tells us that Aaron Boone - rather than his brother Bret, who also will be shopped by Seattle - will wind up back with the
Yankees at second base."
