Mets Trade Rumors: Brian Wilson Says Giants Are In Talks To Acquire Carlos Beltran

You won't find a bigger fan of New York Mets OF Carlos Beltran than San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson.  Even before Wilson saw Beltran leg out an infield single to start a 4th inning rally in the National League's 5-1 victory over the American League in the All-Star Game, the bearded one introduced his squad's lineup on TV for FOX and couldn't hold back his enthusiasm.

"The guy's a phenomenal hitter, a switch-hitter.  There's talks of him coming over to the Giants.  More than welcome, come on over, pal."

But that wasn't enough for Wilson.  After notching the save for the National League, Wilson told the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea that the Giants and Mets were working on a deal.

"I guess we’re in talks with them about Beltran.  Just another perennial hitter.  Could only help out a squad."

Wilson quickly tried to say he simply "heard a rumor", but with the two teams matching up perfectly and Mets GM Sandy Alderson having already traded Francisco Rodriguez long before the deadline, it's not crazy to think talks for Beltran could be advanced with the Giants.
