Delgado stays

Bryan Hoch at, writes about Carlos Delgado and his desire to stay with the Mets:

Carlos Delgado sees his future with the Mets, and the team is thrilled to have him on board.

Mets general manager Omar Minaya said on Monday that Delgado and his agent, David Sloane, have informed the club that the first baseman does not plan to exercise his right to demand a trade this offseason.

"Carlos has notified us that he is very happy to be here," Minaya said. "He enjoys being with the New York Mets and enjoys being in the city. He enjoys everything about this organization."

Because Delgado was traded to the Mets by the Marlins in the first year of a multi-year contract, he could have insisted upon being dealt again following the 2006 season.

But Delgado, 34, appeared to enjoy his first campaign with the Mets, a reversal after he spurned an offer from the team to sign a four-year, $52 million contract with Florida in January 2005.
