The rich are planning to get richer.
Reports out of New York are that the Yankees are making slugger Carlos Beltran their number one off-season target:
Beltran is looking for a three-year deal, a source said, while the Yankees would like to sign him for only two. Several teams have thrown their respective hats in the ring for the 36-year-old, including the Red Sox, Rangers, Mariners and Royals.
The Yankees just signed top free-agent catcher Brian McCann to a five-year, $85 million contract over the weekend. Getting Beltran would be the icing on the cake.
Beltran finished with 24 homers, 84 RBI’s and batted .296 in St. Louis last season.
