Carlos Beltran making the Mets think about him in 2012?

All the focus has been on Jose Reyes and his incredible year. While quietly Carlos Beltran is having a good year for himself so far in 2011.

The guy who the Mets didnt think would be healthy enough , has played in the 78 of the Mets games so far this year. I would deem that healthy wouldn't you.  Beltran is a free agent after this year and everyone chatted about how the Mets might have a tough time to unload him during the year and that if they did he was AL bound as a DH. Well he might not be AAA 1 rating in the outfield but he can certainly hold his own.

Of course his offense has been pretty darn consistent. The Mets right fielder has 53 rbi's and 21 doubles in basically half a season with 11 home runs. Even if he slowed down a little he is good for 15-18 homers and 80-90 Rbi's.  Has he played good enough for the Mets to consider a deal for him in 2012 to play right field.

At the right price who else would you consider to play right field especially if the Mets drop a ton of cash at Reyes door step. Check out our new poll and let us know what you think about Beltran being a Met beyond 2012 .
