The Mets took the first step toward preparing for the 2009 season by picking up the option on Carlos Delgado‘s contract. What remains to be seen is which Carlos Delgado will show up. The one who stunk through the 2007 season and through may of the 2008 season? Or the one who put up MVP numbers from June to the end of the 2008 season?
The option calls for one more year so Delgado will be a free agent after next season which will open the door for another first baseman in 2010. Perhaps Daniel Murphy?
