The guy was once your favorite whipping boy, but Carlos Delgado continued to delight Mets fans by leading them to a rousing 6-3 victory over rival Philly at Citizens Bank Park last night. Oh yeah: Daniel Murphy had something to do with it, too.
The Mets split their series with the Phils and regained a half-game lead in the NL East, but all is not perfect. Billy Wagner remains week-to-week, and Ramon Castro went on the DL. Among other notes in yesterday’s notebook were: promotions for Robinson Cancel and Nelson Figueroa; a return to the minors for Ricardo Rincon; and a return to action for Marlon Anderson.
Lastly, from the Philly side, Jimmy Rollins bemoaned the Mets antics following a home run…sort of. J-Roll, who has had a few choice words this year for the Phillie faithful, stopped short of criticizing the Mets’ method of celebration, but he basically got his point across anyway. Read on for yourself.
