When the Mets traded for Johan Santana they said there wouldn’t be any long losing streaks. They’ve dropped three so far.

Carlos Delgado is dropped to sixth in the batting order. Today is Game #20 and already there have been three significant line-up changes: Ryan Church from sixth to second; Church dropped down to sixth again (after a five-game losing streak) and now Delgado from fifth to sixth. I think that’s a lot of movement early.
We’ll see how it plays out tonight.
But, here we are in early April and again wondering what’s up with Carlos Delgado. Is he done? Will he have a bounce back year? Can he give the Mets something?
Let us know and vote in the poll.
3rd INNING: Delgado’s groundout put the Mets on the board first. Santana doing his job. Frozen yogurt machine is empty. Mets 1, Washington 0.
4th INNING: Tim Redding doubles home two off Santana. Washington 2, Mets 1.
6th INNING: Sometimes your best offense is the other team’s defense. Mets take advantage of bad throw to score three. Mets 5, Washington 2.
