- Will the Mets go to three starters or four in the playoff rotation?
- Will Aaron Heilman be on the post-season roster or not?
- Will Andy Phillips get a full World Series share?
But because Carlos Delgado is the guy who said this last season:
"I think at times we can get a little careless. We've got so much talent I think sometimes we get bored."For as much undue flak Delgado received for that, it really is nice that he's the guy now carrying this team. Because who knows if he was talking primarily about the team or about himself ... but the one thing you can say now that Delgado has morphed into Ted Williams is that there's no way he's bored. If he was bored, would he have 11 home runs against lefties this season (as opposed to four last season?) Manny Acta thought he would be cute last night and bring in lefty Charlie Manning in against Uno Cinco to turn him around and then have Manning in to face Delgado ... they both homered (Charlie's no Peyton, obviously.) You can't get cute with the Carloses anymore.
So feel good ... it's okay to dream about post-season shares. Because you know, Ambiorix Burgos will probably need that share for legal fees. Idiot.
(Editor's note: At least Brian Bannister's ERA is rather high.)
