Orange You Glad You Didn’t Squeeze Out Valencia

Danny Valencia had himself a nice little weekend.  On Friday, he hit two homers, then yesterday he became only the third player to ever have a three-homer game (3-for-5, 5 RBIs) against the Rays (last one was Carlos Delgado in 2003), and only the 2nd player that also stood for the pregame National Anthem.   Valencia grew up Jewish, and, according to Wikipedia, "(Valencia's)...

Yoenis Cespedes’ latest blast leaves Carlos Delgado in his dust

Yoenis Cespedes had a quiet October for the Mets, but his regular-season numbers remain outlandish. On Monday, he smashed his eighth homer of the season and 25th in 77 games since joining the club.

#TBT: Carlos Delgado’s big day in the Bronx

If there is one thing the New York Mets missed before Lucas Duda’s 30 home run season, it was a legitimate home run threat. The team has produced only two 30 home run seasons since Carlos Delgado in 2008 -Ike Davis in 2012 and Lucas Duda in 2014. Heading into June 27, 2008, it appeared Carlos Delgado’s time with the Mets was coming to a close. The former Blue Jay slumped to a...

Carlos Delgado And The History Of First Ballot Cuts

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Carlos Delgado received less than the 5% needed to stay on the ballot for the Hall of Fame. Fans of the Toronto Blue Jays were not happy with the results, and it is justified. Delgado is the only player to have 30 or more home runs in 10 straight seasons and fall off the ballot after one try. There could be a lot of reasons this happened: a stacked...

Carlos Delgado’s Hall of Fame snub highlights flawed voting system

Carlos Delgado was never a likely candidate to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. However, he didn’t deserve to be snubbed on his first ballot. Call it irrelevant, but if Don Mattingly hung around for 15 years, Delgado should have accrued enough votes to hang around for more than one. A two-time All-Star, Delgado hit 473 home runs (31st all-time), slugged .546...

D-backs prospect hits five home runs in five consecutive at-bats (VIDEO)
