Because I’m grateful to Carlos for helping to take 2 out of 3 from the Bravos, I would like to honor him with this weeks “Monday Morning Metsy” award. So here’s to you Carlos Delgado, slugger extraordinarie... Be prepared for more booing if you don’t keep improving.Is this some ploy by Baker to give Delgado some reassurance to build off of? Is this a cruel joke? I don't know, but I like it.
Delgado has seen more than his fair share of booing so far this season. Sure, he probably deserves it for his poor batting average and power outage, but we're not even through 25 games. Let the guy get his stride before we rain down upon him. If after 40 or so games, he's still struggling, then, by all means, let the guy have it. But right now, hold off.
Heck, he has a Metsy and I'm sure if he hurled it at you, it would hurt.
