In an article by David Lennon of Newsday When Beltran was asked if he will listen if the Mets approached him with a trade proposal this off season Beltran said,“I have to,” Beltran said. “I have to do what’s best for me and they have to do what’s best for them. I want to win. I want to win a championship before I’m gone from this game, so I have to listen to them and what they have to say. If it works for everybody, then it works for everybody. Right now, I’m not thinking about that. Let’s just hope next year we can be better.
