ESPN has an article indicating that Carlos Beltran will indeed sign with the Mets.
"The New York Mets have reached an agreement in principle to sign center fielder Carlos Beltran for $119 million over seven years to make him their centerpiece player, ESPN.com has confirmed."
A source familiar with the negotiations told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney that the talks with Houston fell through Saturday night because the team would not give Beltran a full no-trade clause. Beltran and his agent, Scott Boras, were OK with the seven-year, $108 million deal from the Astros. But the offer included a "limited" no-trade clause -- a stipulation that turned out to be the fallout of those talks.
Updates to follow.

Sorry I didn't get back with anything more. I got busy. Anyhow, I agree with Al Yellon.
This is also a good time to revisit "The Ghost of Mike Hampton."
