Delgado Does It Again

Carlos Delgado, My Hero

This from the Mets:
For most of this season, Carlos Delgado was mired in a slump, with no reason to believe he could resurrect his past productivity at the plate.

Now, he's about as hot as a baseball player can be. And the Mets are cashing in.

Delgado hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning Thursday, leading the Mets to a 3-1 victory and a series win over the Phillies.

After pinch-hitter Robinson Cancel singled to lead off the eighth and Phillies reliever J.C. Romero intentionally walked David Wright, Delgado laced a pitch into the left field corner to plate both runners. Billy Wagner recorded the final three outs for the save.
Great. And if Carlos would only hustle in the field just a little bit, if he would run just a little bit harder on defense, if he would try just a little bit harder, I would be even more ecstatic. And the Mets might even look like a contender, rather than a bunch of superannuated, overpaid former stars.
