Delgado taken out!?!

Not to say it isn't true but I have been listening to ESPN radio for about an hour and have heard nothing about it.

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

on mlb.com they said
Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Carlos Delgado left the game due to an injured knee.
Is this garbage bs that is being spread around or the real deal?

Now they're calling it a knee strain on the Jays broadcast...sounds like the trade talk is a hoax. But still not good news for the Jays.

I'm watching the Angels broadcast and they've said nothing about a trade and mentioned that Delgado went into second awkwardly earlier in the game.

Delgado was removed from the game with a knee injury. I've seen zero print to support the trade rumor.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

As a dodger's fan, I'm sad that he didn't leave due to the trade.
As a Delgado owner, I'm sad that he didn't leave due to the trade. A jammed knee doesn't sound too good :-o

Thanks for ruining a good rumor, Madison. Maybe Depodesta's up to something because their current lineup...needs a Delgado.

The final word, from the Toronto Star. Trade=hoax and the knee doesn't sound so bad that he won't be hitting (not like he was hitting before this injury):

A few moments of uncertainty set in during the club's entertaining 10 inning, 6-5 win when ESPN Radio reported Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi had completed a trade in principle that would send superstar slugger Carlos Delgado to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Juan Encarnacion and left-handed pitching prospect Brian Morris.

"I don't know where it (report) came from," Ricciardi said about the report, which was flatly denied in Toronto and even surprised the Dodgers front office last night.

Delgado left after the third inning with a knee problem and was not available for comment after the game, which saw the Jays overcome a 5-4 deficit in the eighth and win it on one of the more unusual plays to be seen at SkyDome this season.

"It's the knee that bothered him before," Jays manager Carlos Tosca said of Delgado's right knee, which was repaired with arthroscopic surgery last fall.

"He said he could hit, but he couldn't run and field his position, which is a lot for him to say that. The worst case scenario is that he'll be the DH Wednesday.'' The Jays have today off.

How does worst case come to him being DH on Wed? He said he can't run, so why would you let him play at all? You've gotta run the bases if you get on. That doesnt make sense to me. Personally, I wouldnt mind seeing him take the rest of the week off. The owner I'm playing has Delgado and any advantage I can get.. I'll take!

You mean needs the real Delgado. Not this clown disguised as him this year.
