Mets: Beltran agrees to seven-year deal

by Fanball Staff -
Sunday, January 9, 2005

The Mets and outfielder Carlos Beltran have agreed in principle to a seven-year, $119 million deal, reported. A source said that the contract would include an $11 million signing bonus. The Mets and agent Scott Boras still need to structure the season-by-season salaries and any deferred payments. Beltran is expected to take a physical on Monday. He split his time between the Royals and Astros in 2004 and hit .267 with 38 homers, 104 RBI, 42 steals, and 121 runs.

The Mets already bolstered their pitching staff by adding Pedro Martinez and signing Beltran would obviously be a huge boost to their offense and defense. Putting Carlos in the middle of the Mets' lineup helps everyone in their order, and an outfield featuring both Beltran and Mike Cameron will definitely make the pitching staff smile. That being said, the deal is not yet official, and we'll have more to say once that time comes.

Wow, first Pedro and now most likely Beltran.

Did the Mets hit up Steinbrenner for a loan?
