Carlos Delgado could be leading the Mets to the playoffs by himself. With putting the Mets in playoff contention he has always made himself an MVP candidate. Delgado has hit 12 homers since August 1st with 5 homers in September. The red hot Mets are 3 games up on the rival Phillies with 17 games left. In 2007, the Mets had 17 games to go when their season began to go wrong. Delgado along with the rest of the Mets are confident that the Mets won't collapse. Delgado said "We think what happened last year is not going to happen again, and we're very confident that we can get this done."
The Mets play the last 17 games against the Braves, Nats, Braves, Cubs, and then the Marlins. Last year during the collapse the Mets played some easy teams after the Phillies including the Phillies, the Nationals twice, a one game series with the Cardinals, and the Marlins twice.
Is another collapse coming or will Delgado lead the Mets to October?
