The Angels are the front-runners for Adrian Beltre

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels are now the front-runners for Adrian Beltre‘s services because (a) the Athletics have dropped out; and (b) the Rangers don’t feel comfortable making the commitment in dollars and years that Beltre seems to want.

The A’s have been jerked around by Beltre for a long time, it seems. They had an offer out there. He showed no interest in it. You can’t blame them for saying goodbye to the whole situations.  Likewise, Nolan Ryan seemed to make it pretty clear yesterday that he’s not comfortable going more then three years for a player no matter who he is. Rosenthal says that Boras is looking for at least five years for Beltre. So it would seem that the Angels are the only team in play for Beltre.

That is, unless a mystery team is suddenly reported to be interested.  But that never, ever happens with Scott Boras clients, does it?

    Now all the Angels need to do is send in Torii Hunter to convince Beltre that Anaheim is the best fit for him. Done deal!! Wait..what?
