Blue Jeans Posted January 23, 2007 Share Posted January 23, 2007 Delgado May Miss Beginning of 2007 SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- New York Mets star Carlos Delgado could miss a few games at the start of the regular season for the birth of his child. The first baseman said his wife was due to give birth to the couple's first child within a few days of the Mets' April 1 opener at St. Louis. "My child comes first," he told the newspaper El Nuevo Dia. Delgado did not say whether his wife, Betzaida Garcia, planned to give birth in New York or his native Puerto Rico. The Mets said Tuesday they were aware of the pregnancy. Delgado, who had surgery on his left arm in October, hit .265 with 38 homers and 114 RBIs in his first season with the Mets. He then batted .351 with four homers and 11 RBIs in the postseason. I agree, but bad timing, Carlos. We're all hoping for a pre-mie! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
