What about Beltran?

In scanning the non-A's postings on MLBTR this morning, I came across the Carlos Beltran contract situation, and it struck me as a great "buy low" opportunity. If you look at this year's free agent class, it would be tough to find anyone as talented as Beltran aside from Carl Crawford, who you know is going to cost a ton. Similarly, with the Chavez money coming off the books next year, the 18.5M owed to Beltran for one season doesn't seem so crazy. Wouldn't it be nice to have him in the lineup next season, a year removed from surgery, to anchor the lineup?

You know a guy with Beltran's talent will have to bounce back soon ... it's like buying Citi stock when it's at $1. Any chance the A's would claim him off waivers?
