Wouldn't It Be Nice To Sign Carlos Beltran?

The Tampa Bay Rays are apparently in the hunt for free agent slugger OF Carlos Beltran. But, let's be honest here, there are apparently three other teams in the running for Beltran.

When was the last time Rays ever signed a free agent who was also drawing interest from other teams? Never, if I recall correctly. Oh, well, there was the Hit Show, but that's Devil Rays history.

Anyway, Beltran had a career year last year (.389 wOBA, 151 wRC+), despite being 34 years old. Hitters in their mid-30s typically fall into the Rays' price range -- so do guys with recent injury histories -- and Carlos Beltran is quite the aged, injured hitter, but this still feels doubtful.

But wouldn't it be nice if Rays could get Beltran to come down to the beach?
