Welcome Back Carlos Delgado

Carlos Delgado made his first appearance for the Mets in almost 3 weeks. In the 7th inning he smashed a solo home run to officially welcome himself back to the team.
Delgado tends to do this when he misses a few games. He comes back with a bang, but then usually fizzles out the next day. However, I'm hopeful this is a different situation.

Delgado has been struggling at the plate all year. He actually looked like he was still struggling in his first 3 at bats of the night, but a few weeks off to not worry about your swing might do the slugger some good.

Delgado thrived in the postseason last year and I have a feeling that he's ready to finally get to work, especially with the Mets current situation. I could be grasping at straws, but I want to believe that Delgado will come through for us.

If not, thankfully Shawn Green is available today.
