Former Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado isn’t retiring, but you may not find him on anybody’s roster come Opening Day. The first baseman’s agent, David Sloane, tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that Delgado will not be accepting any of the offers that are currently available to him, some of which are major league deals. “Delgado does not plan on retiring. Instead, he’ll wait for an opportunity to open up. When that happens, Carlos will […]
For the last 2 off seasons Met fans have been debating furiously with each other on whether or not the Mets should sign Orlando Hudson. I believe the pro Hudson fans last season wanted him for the simple fact that Hudson is not Luis Castillo. Whatever other skills Hudson possessed did not matter to Met fans who wanted to run Luis Castillo out of town after his horrible 2008 season which saw him become a […]
Jayson Stark of ESPN, reported yesterday that scouts who have seen Delgado try to play first base in Puerto Rico are not impressed. He writes, “He’s got no range at first — none,” said one scout. “He actually limps out there. He can’t play first on a day-to-day basis. I think he can still DH, because he’s still got power. But to play first for a team like the Mets? Can’t see it.” This report should probably […]
Carlos Delgado is currently playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League and is interested in returning next season. Likewise, the Mets are interested in bringing the slugging first baseman back to New York. Delgado had a good start to the 2009 season with a .298/.393/.521 line. Of course, that was all in a total of 26 games as the 37-year old first baseman underwent season-ending right hip surgery back in May. The Mets are not the only team interested […]
Ben Sheets, who after refusing to throw for teams early in the offseason, will apparently put his repaired right arm on display for suitors. Sheets, 31, has drawn interest from many teams, though it has generally been tempered because of his exorbitant contract demands for a pitcher with injury problems. Sheets has asked for a $10-12 million deal for at least two years. While interest in him is there, those numbers have scared off most […]
With all the recent talk about Mark McGwire, I’ve decided to think about first basemen and the Hall of Fame. The last MLB first baseman to be inducted into the Hall of Fame was Eddie Murray in 2003. Therefore, when the Class of 2010 was announced last week and only Andre Dawson was voted in, it marked the seventh consecutive season in which no MLB first baseman was inducted. (I mention MLB because two Negro […]
According to Bill Ladson who covers the Washington Nationals for MLB.com, second baseman Orlando Hudson is seeking a $9 million dollar contract for next season. The market for second baseman is very soft and in my opinion, Hudson will end up taking a one year deal just as he did last season. The Mets would still like to add the O-Dog, but probably not for more than $6 million in guaranteed money. Meanwhile, John Morosi of Fox […]
This past week Carlos Delgado played baseball for the first time in months in Puerto Rico. The Mets as we know are down on that beautful Island right now scouting him, deciding whether or not to offer him a contract for the 2010 season. Reports coming out of Puerto Rico is Delgado doesn’t move well. It seems that hip is still a problem and that is exactly why the Mets need to avoid bringing Carlos […]
Playing in his third winter league game, Carlos Delgado continued his offensive outburst last night going 1-3 with a walk, a solo homerun and two RBIs. He is now batting .364 with with a .417 on-base percentage. One thing to bear in mind is that Delgado has been restricted to the designated hitter role thus far, and has yet to play first base. ( I use that term very loosely.) According to AOL’s Ed Price via Twitter, the Mets […]
