The theme of the 2009 Mets spring training has been team first. Jerry Manuel is putting the position players through rigorous hitting drills with the object to hit the other way. All of the talk from the Mets players and management has been about the team, not individual achievements.
Carlos Delgado echoes that theme even though he’s at #30 in all-time home runs. He’s only 31 away from the 500 club which would likely cement his Hall Of Fame credentials. Currently, he’s only six home runs behind the greats Willie Stargell and Stan Musial.
