Carlos Beltran reiterated to the New York Post via text message on Tuesday that he hopes to manage someday.
Beltran, who recently announced his retirement, also confirmed that he talked to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman about the team's managerial vacancy. "Cashman and I had a brief conversation," wrote Beltran. "I explained I’m committed to be back in the game in a role that I can be an impact. I believe the best use of my time and knowledge is in a managerial position. I have a lot to offer but I’m enjoying my time with the family. I’m not in a rush!" Beltran has yet to be called in for a formal interview with the Yankees and it's unclear if he will be. The team is believed to be nearing the end of the first round of the interview process. Even if it doesn't happen with the Yankees, Beltran figures to be a popular name with future managerial openings around the game. Nov 14 - 7:45 PM

Aug 3 - 4:42 PM

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI against the Rays on Tuesday/

Beltran has hit in eight straight, though this is his first homer during the streak. He's been trudging along with an OPS in the vicinity of .700 for most of the season, and while that's not what the Astros were hoping for, it hasn't been bad enough to lead to any serious talk of replacing him. After all, he could always have one more magic postseason run in his bat.
