It's no secret that the New York Yankees want to sign St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran for the 2014 season and Beltran would prefer to sign with the Yankees; something he's wanted to do dating all the way back in the winter of 2004.
So it would come as no surprise that the Yankees are emerging as the front runners to land Beltran in free agency, as George King of the New York Post has reported on Tuesday.
"Carlos Beltran wants a three-year deal and would like to call The Bronx home. The Yankees would love to plant him in right field, but aren’t willing to go beyond two years. Despite the difference, the industry buzz is the sides will eventually find common ground, and the switch-hitter will slide into the middle of the Yankees’ order and take over in right for Ichiro Suzuki. According to a free agent outfielder who the Yankees have talked to, Beltran is going to be a Yankee."
