Carlos Beltran said Monday that he would like to remain with the Cardinals beyond this season and hopes to eventually talk with the team about their future plans.

The problem, of course, is that the Cards have top prospect Oscar Taveras, who will likely be ready to take over right field starting in 2014. So, while Beltran appears to have some good years left in the tank after batting .269/.346/.495 with 32 homers last season, his time in St. Louis is likely done after 2013.
