The Houston Chronicle reports that Carlos Beltran is signing with the Mets. Assuming the story holds true, awesome. Beltran was on my fantasy baseball team in 1999, when he hit 22 homers and stole 27 bases in a pretty nifty rookie season. He was also on my team in 2000, when he hit 7 homers and stole 13 bases. Not as nifty. But he's a super player -- power-speed threat, great fielder, and just reaching his prime. I'd be really excited to see him as a Met, joining Pedro Martinez (and don't forget Miguel Cairo) as this offseason's acquisitions. Awesome.
