You are all familar with my favorite graphic that I copped from botto:
A treasured image to be sure. In keeping with that, I couldn't help but be reminded of it while watching a recent NY Mets game. Carlos Delgado, the highly paid Mets first baseman, comes to bat with the bases loaded, mired in an unmitigated horrific slump. He had been getting booed lately @ Shea. But this time, the man any Mets fan would LEAST want to come up in a pressure situation of late got a boost from the crowd. He did not get booed that time.
The gave Carlos a standing O as he stepped to the plate. This was very surprising, but there it was. The crowd saying 'we still love you Carlos no matter how bad you've sucked recently'. It was awesome. A pitch or two later **CRACK** he slaps a key two RBI single, breaking an 0-17 hitless stretch. The most anti-Disappoint Bongo moment of the year so far.
