F%*# You, Carlos Delgado

Dear Carlos,

Coming in to today’s game, you were hitting .195.  You had all of two home runs and eleven RBI’s.  You were not contributing offensively at all, and your defense is below average at best.  You are coming off the worst season of your pro-career, and you have publically admitted as much on numerous occasions.  You were benched yesterday. Despite all of this, you are making $16,000,000.

I’m quite sure that if you were to examine your own stats without knowing that they were your own stats, you would surly think that the player should be sent to AAA.  To be among the highest paid players in the game, one would think you should at least be an “average” offensive player.

Carlos Delgado, you are NOT an average player.  The paycheck that you earn and the expectations that are thrust upon you ensure that you have superstar status, even if you no longer have superstar ability.

Today, you hit two home runs.  Today, you looked like you could actually earn your paycheck.  And today, the fans cheered for you like you were a triumphant emperor being carried home after a victory in a bloody foreign war.  And today, you told the fans to kiss your ass.

We wanted a curtain call, and you gave us the finger.  We wanted to cheer for you, and you had sex with our sister.  We wanted nothing short of a few seconds to embrace you, and you completely and utterly ignored us.

Sure, you’ve been booed.  Sure, you’ve been given a hard time. But quite frankly, you don’t even rank on the list of disappointing players who have felt the wrath of Mets fans.  Ask Bobby Bonilla, Vince Coleman, Braden Looper, Roberto Alomar, George Foster, Armando Benetiz, et.  They have a right to be bitter to the Shea fans.  YOU, Carlos, you do not.

So Carlos, today, when you chose to ignore the fans that wanted a curtain call, you may have stuck your foot in the door and served notice that someday very soon you will be on that list above, that list of players who will never be embraced by the fans. And for that, I say:

F%*# You, Carlos Delgado, F%*# You.

    I share a lot of the same feelings you do Mr. Joe about Delgado but I really can’t blame Delgado here. He has been boo’d relentlessly for the last two seasons and it quite frankly it is well-deserving since Delgado has been nothing spectacular. I think he sent a message to Mets fans about the boo’ing of their hometown team players. Mets fans boo everything. The fans have already boo’d Santana on his first start at Shea. Its a little bit ridiculous with the boo’ing of everything. The bottom line is if he doesn’t want to come out and do a curtain call after being boo’d so much, he doesn’t have to! We are still going to hate him anyway

    Carlos Delgado should watch the movie Rocky IV. Rocky won the fans in Moscow by putting on a great boxing show. Carlos should learn that fans are jealous of the high salaries these players make and they expect Carlos to play at a Superman level. Learn to love people who hate you. By not taking a curtain call Carlos just made his relationship with the paying customer uglier than a prizefighter who got his bell rung for twelve rounds.

    You, an an idiot, Joeadig. I’m not a Met fan, but even I know the whole story. If you had the attention span to wait until the game was over to hear his reasoning, neither one of us would be wasting our time typing all this. He feels he didn’t deserve a Curtian Call due to his season. He feels that those few hits didn’t give him the right to have a Curtian Call.

    So Joeadig, today, you have made a fool of yourself.

    F%*# You, Joeadig, F%*# You.

    Shockingly, I completely disagree with you and thought this was a complete and utter non-issue. Delgado doesn’t take curtain calls. Some players feel it is showing up the competition, particularly when a player is struggling as badly as Delgado was. I didn’t feel it was an “F-U” to the fans at all; I thought it was just a player who didn’t do what he traditionally doesn’t do. The media made a whole lot more of this than they should have, and I believe you are as well; this was totally nothing remotely worthy of discussion.
