This is how you try to win back to back World Series, you bring in guys who can help you through a trade and that is what the San Francisco Giants have in place. Beltran will go to the Giants for 21-year-old right-hander Zack Wheeler, the sixth pick in the 2009 draft. The Mets are also reportedly going to pay a bulk of Beltran's salary as well. No matter how you look at it the Giants definitely got a lot better once the deal is announced.
San Francisco was already tough, but adding Carlos Beltran to an offensive that has struggled at times is a big boost. The Giants have a very deep rotation along with one of the better bullpens. This has to put them right up there with the Phillies as one of the favorites in the National League. Beltran should do well in San Francisco and the Mets get a pitcher to start in the rebuilding process that it seems they have been on for awhile.
