More On Delgado

David Lennon at On The Mets Beat, writes about Carlos Delgado and how the Mets can't carry him forever:

I'm not sure if it's good news or bad news for the Mets that Carlos Delgado insists he is "100 percent" healthy despite his declining performance this season. Delgado turns 35 next month, and it's unlikely that age has suddenly caught up to him. He does play first base after all. He's not a catcher.

Whatever the problem is, the Mets can't carry him forever, and as manager Willie Randolph pointed out yesterday, his slump is affecting the pitches that Carlos Beltran sees as well. Before long, Randolph may have no choice but to have the red-hot Wright jump Delgado in the lineup.
