I know most of my readers are on the ball. Your overwhelming response against Sammy Sosa coming here is confirmation. Now, about Carlos Delgado. He’s been a hot button topic all year.
He’s not a great defensive player, we know that. But, he has had some shining moments at first. He hasn’t been the hitter this year we’ve always known.
Maybe he’s having concentration problems with the new baby. Maybe he’s hurting from two offseason surgeries and not letting on. Maybe it’s both of those. Maybe it’s none of them. Maybe Delgado is just having a bad year after so many good ones. He’s not a quitter. He’s not a loafer. He’s definitely not a clubhouse cancer.
In my mind Delgado is a good, decent man, who as a player is off his game. You don’t lose it overnight and I don’t believe he has. I still think there are good moments in that bat.
