Moises Alou's Return... 1B possible

Postby Nails86 » Wed Apr 23, 2008 1:15 pm

Moises is expected to return to the Mets at Shea this weekend, returning from the hernia injury. According to Mike and the Mad Dog 660 AM in New York, the front office has been "fooling and talking about" the idea of getting Alou some time at 1B because of Delgado's struggles.

Delgado is teh suck.

He had a decent second half last year, but he's becoming a liability

I haven't heard this elsewhere and did not listen to the M&MD this morning. I'm a bit skeptical. If it does happen I have to think that it would be occasionally. Delgado could struggle all year and while he might get shifted further and further down the lineup, I have a hard time believing he would be benched. So from a fantasy perspective it would take a long time, if ever, for Alou to get 1B eligibility in most leagues.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

They talked about this scenario on Monday. It sounds pretty intriguing to me. I don't want Angel Pagan benched when Delgado is stinking it up.
