After a caller mentioned the great run Carlos Delgado is on, Russo chimed in that the problem he has with Delgado was that a few years ago when Carlos was still a Blue Jay, Toronto tried to trade him to a team that was in the postseason hunt and he decided not to go, and Toronto's season was dead. And for a guy that had never "sniffed September in a big spot" when he passed on that deal, "that was a bad sign" to Chris. Russo always holds these types of grudges with players. If you cross him and his imaginary list of player protocol, you can never recover in Dog's eyes. Delgado is officially on Russo's Grudge Report.

Once again, let it go, Dog. That was along time ago, and simply put, Delgado did not want to play for LA. End of story. It's 2008 and he is a Met.

Just to set Doggie straight. Delgado got a good sniff of the playoffs in 2006. His lines were pretty good.

Division Series
6-14, 1 HR, 2 RBI, .429 average

7-23, 3 HR, 9 RBI, .304 average

13-37. 4 HR, 11 RBI, .351 average

Doesn't look like a guy who was afraid to play in the playoffs, but you'll never hear Dog say that because that would make him look back.
