Delgado Visit a Non-Story

Everybody is reporting about Carlos Delgado visiting the Mets clubhouse yesterday. I’m still trying to figure out how people are making such a big deal out of it.

Yes, the Mets need a first baseman. The current solution at first base (Mike Jacobs, Fernando Tatis and, when he gets healthy, Daniel Murphy) is not acceptable.

Yes, Delgado would like to extend his major league career. He would not like to end it with an injury.

But these things have been known since he went down with the injury last year. This is not news. It’s old.

But since everyone is commenting about it here’s my 2 cents on the subject. As much as the Mets need a better solution at first base Delgado won’t be the answer. That ship has sailed. Stop living in the past and look for the future. Look for the Mets to acquire an expiring contract later in the season to keep first base warm for Ike Davis, who will probably be the starter next season.
