Delgado's hip

Postby rookies and cream » Sat Mar 01, 2008 2:11 pm

Delgado back to NYC for MRI on ailing hip. They're saying it's precautionary, but this news can't be good.

No offense, but Delgado is looking like a terrible fantasy option this year anyway. I can't see what there is to like besides an aging first baseman with a terrible average in a deep fantasy position.

Yeah, he's past his greatness. I had him like 8 years ago.

Update:

Mar 2 Delgado will be sidelined for a couple of days with a sore right hip. The slugger left spring training camp and returned to New York for an MRI, which was negative. He has an impingement in his hip and was returning to Port St. Lucie on Saturday night, the Mets said.

there are too many solid 1B options out there to waste even a remotely high pick on delgado.

I just drafted him in the 18th round in a dynasty league....this was before his injury was announced.

I would not draft him as my starting 1B, but I don't mind taking the chance on him as a back up bench player.

I think I'd take a shot at Delgado in the 20th or later and that's about it. He looked old last season and this obviously doesn't help. A bad hip is the kind of thing that tends to linger.
