RSL Poll: Should the Sox sign Beltran?

Multiple sources have the Boston Red Sox doing some serious tire kicking on free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran.

Beltran is coming off a 2013 season in which he batted .296/.339/.491 (128 OPS+) with 24 homers and 30 doubles.

If the Sox lose Jacoby Ellsbury, Shane Victorino could shift to center with Beltran manning right.

Beltran is reportedly seeking a 3-year deal and any team that signs him will have to give up a draft pick as the Cardinals did make a qualifying offer.

Are the Red Sox serious or are they just trying to drive up the price on Beltran? The Orioles and the Yankees seem to be the other teams interested in the 36 year-old outfielder.

What say you, Red Sox Lifer's?
