SF Giants Rumors

Brian Wilson Hints Giants In Talks With Mets For Carlos Beltran

By Bryan Rose

Per the Chronicle:

"Wilson announced the NL lineup on the TV broadcast, and when he got to Beltran, he mentioned the rumors linking the Met to the Giants and said, “Come on over.”After the game, Wilson was more specific, suggesting the Giants and Mets are talking trade.“I guess we’re in talks with them about Beltran,” Wilson said. “Just another perennial hitter. Could only help out a squad. I think we’ve got a pretty good team already. We are in first place.”When a reporter asked Wilson to clarify his Beltran-to-the-Giants statement, the closer smiled and said, “I didn’t say that. I said I heard a rumor that someone’s interested.”"

Beltran, who took the same charter as the Giants to the All-Star game (as did Jose Reyes) said the guys all introduced themselves and it’s no secret that a few Giants, namely Pablo Sandoval, already have friendships with the Mets slugger.

It’s Wilson – so it needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but it’s interesting to note never the less.
