ESPN: Szymborski: Cheap relief key for Bucs and Tribe (INSIDER)

While they're not among the best teams in baseball, you'll be hard-pressed to find fans of the Cleveland Indians or Pittsburgh Pirates who are disappointed with how the season has gone so far. Neither club was expected to be serious contenders yet now find themselves in striking distance of a trip to the playoffs. Other than being rebuilding franchises, one thing both have in common is that they have put together inexpensive, overachieving bullpens that have done a lot of fuel their teams' playoff runs.

You know who would be perfect for Pittsburgh? Not some middle reliever- Carlos Beltran. Putting a big bat in RF and moving Jones to 1B would give them an acceptable lineup. (Granted Beltran apparently will only be traded to one of seven NL teams, which reading bewteen the lines means every NL team within 4 games of a playoff spot except the Pirates)
