Let me start out by saying “kudos” to the fans at Shea last night for not booing Carlos Delgado. It’s time we put this whole thing behind us, once and for all, and just root, root, root for the home team! And just to set the record straight, I never said booing was nice. I don’t boo players. But the same way booing is not nice, neither is ignoring the fans when they want a [...]
Yes, it’s true and it pains me to say it. We have created such a feeling of hostility in our own home park that it has permeated into the minds of the players and turned our Mets fan base into a laughing stock throughout all of sports. We have made it a burden for the Mets to relax at the plate because of the unrealistic expectations we have for each player. It has become as [...]
I know it’s not my night, but since we have been rained out, what the heck… What is the problem? So Delgado didn’t give us a curtain call after his second homerun in yesterday’s win against the Braves. Boo-hoo. I mean a curtain call is nice and all, but there is no right or wrong time to do it. A player doesn’t have to do it. The fact that we are wasting time discussing Delgado’s [...]
What in the world is all this fuss about curtain calls?? Like I said last night, who cares? As far as I’m concerned the only issue is that Carlos Delgado hit two homeruns and even won a Metsy for crying out loud… Do we have to make everything so negative all the time… even when we should be happy… why are some reporters always trying to rain on our parade? * * * * * [...]
A happy Monday morning indeed Met-heads! This makes two weekends in a row that I was able to lay my head down at night peacefully, knowing the Mets had won. What makes this victory even sweeter is the fact it came at the expense of John Smoltz and the hated Braves. I always cringe when I know a series against the Braves is coming because if the Mets don’t win I’m going to hear it from [...]
Wow, what a way to make a statement. Today’s big win over John Smoltz and the Braves would not have been possible if not for the efforts of first baseman Carlos Delgado. Delgado launched a pair of homeruns today and we’re talking huge blasts, not the the garden variety homers the Mets have been hitting this month. What was most impressive was the opposite field shot which put the Mets up 4-0 at the time. [...]
It’s no surprise that everyone is looking at the Mets future center fielder. Martinez was signed in 2005 as a non-drafted free agent. Native of the Dominican Republic, Martinez has shown signs of a five-tool player last year as he hit some home runs along with speed and a great arm. He was slowed down, much like Carp, last year because of an injury to his finger in which he missed four games. After the [...]
They say that money can’t buy happiness, but in the case of Carlos Delgado it’s even worse than that. The $16 million dollars he is being paid, actually $20 million with the option included, makes Carlos Delgado the highest paid player on the New York Mets and first base overall. Yes, even more than Albert Pujols! And yet, for Delgado the enormity of that contract has become his own personal cross to bear. He carries [...]
You’re probably thinking, why legend? Let’s face it, Keith Hernandez is the king of comedy with it comes to color commentary. There’s something about his informations or antics that make the game even better. No offense to Ron Darling, but every pre-game show I just can’t wait to see who’s sitting next to Gary. Just to display how great this man is, I prepared a short list on what he says in the booth that [...]
