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 all of the Braves fans who have been on the bandwagon since 1991. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Mets.
Much has already been made about Carlos Delgado not obliging the fans for a curtain call after his second homer yesterday. He claims it was because he didn’t feel it was worthy of a curtain call, but in my humble opinion I think he was making a statement. Not that it really mattered to me, but two homeruns don’t outweigh the inconsistency he has shown thus far. He only did what Carlos Delgado is supposed to do. I realize one of the hardest things to do in the world is hit a baseball, but when you make $16 million doing it I think a little consistency isn’t too much to ask. Hopefully, in addition to the immediate dividends it paid today, he can build on his success. That being said, he can hit 30 more homers and pout in the dugout all year if it means a World Series title.
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 extraordinaire… Be prepared for more booing if you don’t keep improving.
