With the trade deadline just nine days away, the Carlos Beltran rumors continue to swirl -- and they will until he either gets traded or we pass the deadline with him still wearing a Mets uniform.

Here's the latest:

- What CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler wrote two days ago still pretty much stands, which is that the Giants, Phillies and Braves are the front-runners in some order with the Red Sox and Rangers lingering.

- It also remains true that Beltran would rather stay in the National League and that he has a no-trade clause.

- Fox Sports reports, in addition to confirming the Giants, Phillies and Braves as front-runners, that the Mets likely need to wrap up a deal several days in advance of the deadline, in case Beltran exercises his no-trade clause.

- Buster Olney of ESPN.com thinks the Braves are the leader with the Giants second, mentioning starting pitcher Mike Minor as one of the pieces the Braves could move.

- Jon Heyman of SI.com throws the Brewers name in the mix, but -- as we noted in the NL Central primer -- they cannot complete with the type of prospects package the front-runners can put together.

Inserting Beltran into that Braves lineup in place of the worthless Nate McLouth could be lethal. Especially if Uggla wakes up, which appears to be taking place lately.

Phillies will not go after Beltran...They won't give into the Mets demands for high ceiling young players. He's a two month rental.

Friday's obligatory Beltran update

let's hope it's not the red sox...they don't need more hitting, they just need a manager who puts his best lineup on the field instead of running things like little league..if the sox want a deadline deal, get some pitching..can we do like the pirates did in the 70's and trade for a decent manager?
