The SB Nation fantasy site, Faketeams, has reported that teams are interested in acquiring Raul Ibanez or Adrian Beltre before the trade deadline.
This article contains quotes from local newspapers indicating interest in Ibanez from the Mets and D-Backs. It also reports that the twins have an interest in Adrian Beltre.
Should these rumors prove true, what kind of value do you think we could get for either of these players? I would be sad to see Beltre go, I'm a fan of him, although if we got a 1st baseman and maybe some prospects for Ibanez I'd be ecstatic. Any players in particular on the interested teams you think we could get/would like to see us get?
According to ESPN:
The Twins have contacted the Mariners about the possibility of aquiring Adrian Beltre. It is unclear how deep the conversation got, but it is a step forward as the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported last week that the Twins had internal discussions about Beltre.
Beltre, who was a Gold Glove winner last year, would be the bat the Twins are looking for against left-handed pitching.
