Delgado may bat 3rd.

Postby phillibuster » Thu Feb 23, 2006 10:45 am

Hmmm...Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Wright, Floyd could be nice...I still don't like Beltran batting ahead of a lefty, by the way he was less apt to steal...but I can more write that off to the quad injury.

News: The New York Times reports that Mets manager Willie Randolph said that Carlos Delgado is not locked into the cleanup spot of the batting order.

Analysis: Delgado could bat third a few times this season as Randolph experiments with different combinations. The Mets' offense is expected to be much-improved this season and Delgado is a large reason why. Free agent pickups by the Mets have a negative connotation over the years, but Delgado still lines up as a solid pick in early rounds. He was the 15th overall pick in our NL-only experts draft in February.

No matter where he bats that lineup will be downright deadly.. I think the Mets will represent the NL in the Worlds Series this year. Im going to try to snag at least 2 (hopefully 3) of the bats from the Mets lineup for my fantasy team.. Delgado,Wright,Beltran,Reyes and even Floyd will all have great years IF they can stay healthy...

I'd bat Wright third, personally, but you can't go wrong either way.

I'd bat Reyes like 8th until he learns how to take walks and have Beltran lead off in hopes he goes back to his .360+ OBP ways.

I love the lineup too - but I hate the ballpark and division.

But Wright is plenty good to overcome those things - he proved that last year. Whether Beltran can do it his 2nd go-round remains to be seen, but I like his chances for a bounce-back. Delgado should still mash 30-35HR, but I'm always wary of guys older than 31.

He also was, if I recall correctly, bounced between 3 and 4 with Cabrera in Fla. last season, had no real affect.

I would think they give Reyes the start at leadoff, see if he has gained a little more patience in taking a couple balls....

I remember games last year that he solely took over....stretching many a double into a triple...easily....and stealing 2 and 3 like it was a joke. If he can learn some discipline...he's a great leadoff batter.

I think Reyes will get a tad better a BB's this year, I see him maybe getting 35-40 BB's.. I think having Rickey Henderson in there will help also..

Reyes
Beltran
Wright
Delgado
Floyd

I think if the top 5 is any different to that, it's a joke.
