According to Ben Shipgel of the NY Times, Mets GM Omar Minaya will fly to Puerto Rico to scout free agent 1st baseman Carlos Delgado in winter ball.  Delgado has been a productive Met, racking up 104 HR’s and 339 RBI’s, while batting .272 in 338 games for the Metropolitans.  Carlos has been one of my favorite Met players over the last four years, but it is time to part ways with the future hall-of-famer.
