If we knew a player on an actual team who was willing to share inside information about trades, we would be at least a step ahead of everyone. While players like to be coy and say they have no idea who their team is looking to trade for or who they’re interested in on the free agent market, we all know they must have some clue.
Leave it to the man who rocked these awesome cleats at Tuesday night’s All-Star Game to share that inside information with the public. After the game, John Shea reported on Twitter that Brian Wilson told him the following: “I guess we’re in talks with (the Mets) about (Carlos) Beltran. Just another perennial hitter. Could only help out a squad.”
Carlos Beltran could be a nice addition for the defending champs and based on the Mets’ owners comments it’s no secret New York is looking to deal the outfielder. Wilson tried to backtrack when asked a follow-up question by saying it was just a rumor that he heard, but obviously he just realized he may have said to much. For a man that does television interviews dressed like this, it should come as no surprise that he had a momentary lapse in judgment.
In any event, Wilson will have beaten Buster Olney, Ken Rosenthal, and any other baseball insider to the news if the Giants do indeed work out a trade for Beltran.
