Brian Schneider remains in the hospital with a staph infection in his left thumb, unsure when he'll be able to return to the team.
Says my brother in law Len:
"I just wanna know how many times Schneider took the old saying 'rub some dirt on it' literally over the past few weeks. Obviously, the old adage needs to be changed to, "just rub some alcohol in it so you're not hospitalized and intraveneously fed for a week'. "

This is a controversy. In some places I'm reading Wright tried to convince him to go out... in other places I read Wright told him NOT to go. Delgado was asked about it after the game and he claimed he's only given two curtain calls his whole career... after his 4 homerun game, and when he hit his 400th. He says he has too much respect for the game to give a curtain call after a solo homer in the seventh. I don't know what to think.
Mets Beat Braves, Fashion Beats Smoltz, Delgado Beats Ball But Won't Beat Fans
The Mets beat the Braves today at Shea, taking two of three from Atlanta.
John Smoltz looked really bad today. I don't mean his lousy pitching performance. I mean the schmuck buttoned his jersey wrong and pitched six innings with the ATLANTA across his chest all askew.
Apparently Delgado thought he was Beltran of 2006 today and refused to take a curtain call. Unlike Julio Franco, David Wright couldn't convice him to go out there. As Ron Darling noted in the broadcast, the fans are undefeated in this town. So now Delgado can go play first base in wherever Rey Ordonez is playing, along with the rest of the idiots who tried to take on Mets fans.
