Mets fans suffered through a year of futility before he busted out in July and August. For the sake of the Mets, one can only hope he can recreate his August numbers through the entirety of 2009.
The Mets are close to picking up Carlos Delgado's $12 million option, choosing to keep him around instead of buying him out for $4 million.
I think I can live with it. Hopefully he's not hitting .223 with 13 home runs and 68 RBI at the end of September 2009.
This solves at least one big problem for Omar Minaya. He will not be spending $200 million on Mark Teixeira.
The jury is still out. We saw both sides of Delgado in 2008. The really terrible, slumping Delgado, and the freaking amazing, out-of-his-mind hitting Delgado. I'll take the happy medium.
