Nolan Ryan shoots down the Rangers’ alleged interest in Carlos Beltran

1 Comment

Yesterday Jon Heyman reported that the Rangers have interest in Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez. Later in the day, Nolan Ryan said that was not accurate:

“I can’t believe that we have an interest in either,” Ryan told 103.3 FM’s Galloway and Company … “I don’t see that’s an upgrade” to the Rangers’ bullpen, Ryan said. “And Beltran, you worry about his knee. And you’re taking on an awful lot of salary.”

We now have a blind report and a denial of the blind report that could be legit or could just be negotiating tactics, and no real way for any of us to know the difference.

Welcome to trade season!
