Last year he had a horrible April and this Spring training he only had one extra base hit. The rest of his 12 hits were all singles. Until he gets an extra base hit or two, I might very well sit him for JD Drew.
he may have had a bad first couple of weeks last season, but i remember distinctly that in late april-june he was smoking the ball... and then i traded him for the big ugly unit just before delgado went on the DL and cooled down in the 2nd half.
so i'd have to disagree, delgado, overall, is not a "slow starter" in the true sense of the phrase.
