Adrian Beltre

Buried at the end of Jon Heyman's latest article is a blurb about how if the Angels don't bring back Figgins, they are "expected" to look into Adrian Beltre (also some interesting info on some negotiations with Lackey that went on earlier this year): http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/jon_heyman/11/09/winter.preview/index.html?eref=writers

Here is a link to Beltre's page on Fangraphs (as well as a recent article by Dave Allen about Beltre's value): http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=639&position=3B

Have to admit I hadn't thought of Beltre at all as a possible replacement for Figgy at 3b, but it is kind of interesting.  Beltre would probably be relatively cheap, coming off a rather poor year.  We wouldn't lose anything on defense.  We wouldn't have to rely on a young player (Wood) stepping in and being productive right off the bat...or could said young player be bait in a trade for Halladay?  Thoughts?
