I said hello to Carlos Delgado in the clubhouse and he asked me, “What’s up?’’ and I said, “you are, to fifth.’’
He laughed and jokingly said, “No really?’’ then he looked at the line-up and said, “that’s something, isn’t it?’’
It’s a natural progression.
What else is going on:
-Orlando Hernandez is here and Jason Vargas is not.
-GM Omar Minaya said Moises Alou is making progress and could be activated from the DL Tuesday.
-Minaya also said reliever Guillermo Mota would be activated for Game 51, Wednesday against the Giants, when he’s eligible to come off the suspended list.
-Jose Valentin is making progress and could come off the DL within two weeks.
