Carlos Beltrán me dijo en exclusiva que estaría interesado en la vacante de dirigente de los Yankees. A continuación la cita de nuestra entrevista uno a uno después de anunciar oficialmente su retiro: "Yo personalmente pienso ese es un puesto fenomenal; un puesto de impacto increíble. No solamente para los peloteros que ya yo tuve la oportunidad de compartir con ellos, sino para uno seguir haciendo cosas positivas. Al final del día, sí. Uno tiene que escuchar, porque no todos los días esa vacante está disponible para buscar manager en las Grandes Ligas. Imagínate, Joe (Girardi) estuvo ahí 10 años. Uno nunca sabe, las oportunidades que Dios nos brinda, y si tengo (la oportunidad de entrevistar), no la voy a descartar."

Carlos Beltran told me that he would be interested in interviewing for the Yankees manager position. Here's Beltran's quote from our exclusive one-on-one interview after officially announcing his retirement: "I personally think that's a great job; a position with an incredible impact ... it's not every day that there are vacancies available for managing in the Major Leagues. Just think of this, Joe Girardi was there for 10 years. You never know, there are opportunities that God gives us, and if I get an opportunity (to interview) I will not rule it out."

Carlos Beltrán announces he's retiring. Beltrán had a 20-year MLB career, playing for seven different teams, and just won his first World Series ring with the Houston Astros.

There remains something like a very good core in Queens, but the perils of building around young pitching were proven. It was a bleak season, as down years for the Mets inevitably are.
