BASEBALL: So Close, Yet So Far

I don't generally do rumors here - I have enough trouble finding time to follow things that actually happen - but it certainly looks like the Mets are at least making a serious run now at Carlos Beltran. Of course, I'll believe that deal closing when I see it.

UPDATE: Dr. Manhattan sends along a link to NYFansites, which claims to have Mets sources who say that Beltran to the Mets is a done deal.

I think the whole "baseball world" still just expects Beltran will play his home games in the Bronx next year. The denials won't be believed until another team signs Beltran.

NYFansites also had an article talking about the Mets having signed Alou a week before he signed with the Giants.
