Two weeks from tomorrow night, the Mets will face the Cardinals, officially kicking off teh 2007 MLB season. The Mets were planning for Carlos Delgado to miss that game, and perhaps a few more, because his wife was due to pop out his kid on that day. Well, it seems the stork is coming early. Delgado left camp early yesterday morning to head to Puerto Rico, where his wife was going into labor.
Speaking of new arrivals, Fernando Tatis is in Mets camp for some reason. The guy has appeared in 28 games over the past three seasons, wasn't good enough to last with the Dodgers this Spring, but Omar has decided to give him a minor league contract anyway. Why? I don't know. Third base.
