The Rangers “pushing hardest” for Carlos Beltran

Because they’re clearly in need of offense, the Rangers are thought to be “pushing hardest” for Carlos Beltran.  Or so says Joel Sherman.

Why not. Look, at this point we’re clearly in the “no one knows anything so we’re all just waiting for something to happen” stage of the proceedings anyway.  Which is kind of a bummer, because it doesn’t lend itself to the kind of wacko stuff that you see during free agent season in the winter.  Remember last December when guys were passing along rumors about private planes taking off and landing between Arkansas and Dallas and stuff?  Man, those were good times.

I’m not sure why the Rangers really feel they need Beltran given that their offense is healthy and it appears like they’re taking control of the division, but I suppose you can never have too many runs.
