Delgado Has Hit My Last Nerve

Im feeling pretty damn fortunate. I dealt Delgado, A-Ram, and Moises Alou for Prince Fielder, Holliday, and Alex Gordon before the season started. A few weeks back the guy dropped Alou, and I picked up again, right when he got hot.

I started him all week long (again) in my daily league. Looks like Doumit will see some action at 1B starting tomorrow (who I just picked up). Funny thou, my team set a season high for weekly scoring this week.
I agree with many though, don't drop him as it will likely bite ya.

I've got Delgado too, and between his and Manny's slow starts, I definitely feel your pain. I picked up Sean Green, though, who has 1B eligibility (even though, as a teammate of Delgado's, he obviously isn't playing 1st) and he's been a huge upgrade. See if he's available. I agree with the others though, if you can afford to wait for him to heat up you'll be ok.

From the free weekly e-mail of The Baseball Injury Report:

Delgado had surgery back in October 2006 to repair carpal tunnel syndrome in his
right wrist. Like Sheffield, he's off to a very slow start at the plate, hitting
just one home run in 91 at-bats (at presstime). Last season, even with the
carpal tunnel syndrome bothering his wrist at times, he still managed to belt
one home run in every 13.7 at-bats. In April 2006, he hit nine home runs and
batted .298. In April 2005, he batted .300 though he managed just two homers.
Like Sheffield, Delgado's personal history says he usually gets off to a fast
start too. We haven't heard any excuses coming from New York regarding his slow
start. In Delgado's case, the fact that he is just six months removed from the
wrist surgery looks like it's a contributing factor. The good news is his
strikeout rate is about the norm for the past few years, so making contact isn't
a problem. The wrist will get stronger and his swing will quicken, too.
Unfortunately, that might not be until sometime in May.

Just traded for him giving up Markakis and Valverde.

I don't need an OF but needed a 1B and in def. need of power. What do you think?

I don't like it, but I can't really say much without anymore info.

Wow, I couldn't agree more with this thread. Delgado has been a cancer to my team since the season started. I also have Manny, a slow-starter himself, and I am ready to give up by this point. I lose HR and RBI every week because of that guy's lack of production. shit.
