Everything you have heard about Carlos Beltran likely coming to the Yankees might soon be a lie.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Beltran has a three-year, $48 million offer and the table, and he says that the offer is from the Kansas City Royal, who Beltran began his career with, and have been showing serious interest lately.

After hearing that, sources tell Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com that the Yankees won't match or exceed the three-years, $48 million offer Beltran has.

Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News was also told that the three years won't totally be a deal breaker, but it'll make getting a deal done with the Beltran a lot less likely. The Yankees have been noncommittal all along about giving Beltran the third year he is looking for.

The Yankees had been the seen by many to be the frontrunners to land Beltran this winter after both sides had been showing a lot of mutual interest towards each other. Beltran really liked New York, and tried to sign with the Yankees back in 2004 before he eventually signed with the Mets because the Yanks had no room in the outfield for him at that time.

No matter how you look at this, it would be, somewhat, a disappointment to the Yankees after they made him their No. 1 priority when the locked up Brian McCann.
