But lets face it, after the past five years, 2008 was easily a better...

Carlos Delgado at the Top of His Game

Carlos Delgado‘s official retirement in 2011 sort of slipped under the radar. It was understandable, since it came in April right after the beginning of the season. It was a bit unfortunate, though, because Delgado had an wonderful career. Yesterday at the Rogers Centre, the former Met and Marlin slugger was recognized by the team he was most closely associated with, the Blue Jays...

Mo Vaughn and Carlos Delgado had similar endings to their careers

M The main difference between 1B Carlos Delgado and Mo Vaughn was their longevity with the New York Mets. Vaughn played one full season (played well in the 2nd half of 2002) while Delgado was with the Mets for 3 full seasons. Delgado performed very well in the postseason in 2006. It is fair to say that Carlos Delgado did much more for the New York Mets than Mo Vaughn did. Vaughn...

Mets Baseball Card of the Day: Carlos Delgado

Hey! It’s the last Topps Co-Signer Card in this series…hopefully. You already know that I don’t like the card design. Out of the group, this is probably the best one because it’s a good head shot of Delgado, not like some of the other players featured here. Want to see your cards featured? Click here.

Mets Card of the Week: 2008 Carlos Delgado

 2008 TOPPS SILK CARLOS DELGADO The first baseball-player silks were distributed by tobacco companies in the early part of the 20th century. Those early issues (catalogued as S74 and S81, for those of you scoring at home) were actually satin, not silk, and were intended to be sewn into pillow covers and the like. So after a long day of child-laboring and dodging cholera, little...
