Mets - Reportedly Acquired Delgado
New York Mets - Have reportedly acquired 1B Carlos Delgado and $7 million for P Yusmeiro Petit and 1B-C Mike Jacobs.
I feel that both teams get a fair return in light of their goals for the upcoming season. The Marlins get a very good year out of Delgado and when it looks like their core is higher in cost than in wins, move him out for younger blood and shed the cost of Delgado, not to mention the risk of him aging. The Mets didn’t just have a bad situation at 1B - their first basemen combined to hit 227/303/391 and the relative quality of that line is only due to Mike Jacobs’ insane hitting spree after being called up. Mike Jacobs will never be more valuable than he is now and while Petit is a very good pitching prospect, I don’t think that he has the upside of a guy like Anibal Sanchez.
In one of the old Elias Baseball Analysts, around 1990 or so, they showed that teams with big weaknesses were more likely to improve greatly the following season than balanced, mediocre teams. Delgado is of the quality and 1B was a big enough hole that this could be enough to make the Mets the favorite. Delgado fills an even bigger hole than Josh Beckett fills for the Red Sox.
