Why I Hope The Mets Win
I can sum up my reasons for rooting for the Mets in the NLCS in two words. Carlos Delgado.
Delgado waited 1,711 regular-season games to make his playoff debut and now he's making up for lost time. He's batting .414 with 4 home runs and 11 RBIs in seven playoff games. His slugging percentage is a whopping .931. He's kicking ass when it matters most, something he never had the chance to do in a Blue Jays uniform.
I'll always look upon Delgado fondly. He gave us 12 great years, setting Blue Jay career records for slugging percentage (.556), runs (889), total bases (2,786), doubles (343), home runs (336), RBIs (1,058), walks (827) and more. Furthermore, he's a man of substance who always has a smile on his face and gave his all for the good guys.
Lets hope Delgado wins a much deserved World Series title. It's just too bad it couldn't have happened with the Jays.
