Default McCann hurt - Beltran to Braves?

Rangers offering Mets greater number of players for Beltran. SFGiants offering fewer players, more quality.

Quote:
The latest has the Mets closest to working out a deal involving Carlos Beltran to San Francisco or Texas, with Philadelphia and Boston lagging behind. But, thatís now and four days remain.

McCANN: Injury could shift Braves' priorities.

The Braves have been adamant about not giving up their prime pitching prospects, notably Mike Minor or Julio Teheran.

However, out of necessity, their thinking might have changed with last nightís 19-inning victory over Pittsburgh when they lost catcher Brian McCann indefinitely with an oblique strain. These are tricky injuries, as Metsí fans are aware of with Jose Reyes. Two weeks on the DL could easily become three or four.

With Chipper Jonesí knee ailing, and Jason Heyward and Nate McLouth not hitting, the Braves are in desperate need of a power bat, which might cause them to reconsider at least Minor.

Could be for Upton too. I'm just glad it wasn't for Gomes

They are now reporting Beltran to the giants for Gary Brown and others. Deal pending 24 hr waiting period and minor details supposedly.

I'm not a big Gary Brown fan but Gary Brown+ is a good deal for the Mets.

Even better

Buster Olney of ESPN tweets that Giants pitching prospect Zack Wheeler is expected to be the centerpiece of a trade for Mets centerfielder Carlos Beltran and probably not Gary Brown.

or

Meanwhile Ken Davidoff of Newsday says the Mets will get outfielder Gary Brown plus two other players in addition to Brown, and that the trade could be announced later today or early tomorrow

Either wheeler or brown is a great trade for the mets. You usually don't see teams give up their top specs for a rental. Great trade for the mets.

Thank God the Phillies didn't trade for Beltran. His salary is way too high for the numbers he puts up.

Gary Brown+ = win for the Mets.

Zach Wheeler+ = win for the Giants (depending on who else they throw in).

Actually, the Mets getting anything in return for Beltran is a win for the Mets but I think they should have done better than a package with Zach Wheeler as the centerpiece so I think the Giants will have gotten the better side of that deal if that turns out to be the case. That's just my $.02.

Could be Wheeler for Beltran plus cash and thats it
