Carlos the Jay? Again?!?

They say you can never go home again, but if you pay any attention to Twitter (and I do!), you've read that Carlos Delgado is going back to the team that initially signed him more than 21 years ago.

This according to MLB.com's
Noah Coslov. "Word out of Puerto Rico is that the Jays signed Delgado"

Is this confirmation of something?

Yes...no. Maybe?!?

Now while it isn't likely that the 37 year-old slugger will overtake Lyle Overby as the Blue Jays firstbaseman...it is possible that they could plug him in at DH and watch him creep toward 500 home runs.

Seriously.

Raise your hand if you ever thought Carlos Delgado was going to be a member of the 500 home run club.

No one?

After Gary Sheffield hit his 500th bomb last season...Delgado is up next on the all-time active list with 473 homers. But can he get the 27 necessary?

Consider this...only one time since 1997 (and I throw out last season's injury plagued season) has Delgado NOT hit at least that many and that was in 2007 when he knocked 24 out of the yard for the Mets.



BallHype: hype it up!
