    What do you think Mets fans?

    Lots of talk tonight about Delgado's refusal to take a curtain call to spite the fans for booing him most of the season.

    I'll withhold my opinion for now, I'm more curious about what you guys think.

    He said he didn't take the curtain call because it was a solo shot and they were already winning. I don't know it thats true or not.

    I could care less to be honest. One can debate whether fans should boo at all, but Delgado has been in this game a long time and if he doesn't think his play this year warranted booing then he isn't very smart.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the fans, I don't think he wanted to show them up, I think he felt he doesn't deserve a curtain call, he's had a lousy season thus far.

    i agree. i don't think he didn't come out to spite the fans. i think he didn't feel he deserved it (which i agree).

    He can run on the mound and take a big dump if he wants, as long as he keeps hitting HR's.

    He's only taken 2 in his career. Homerun number 300 and 400.

    You shoulda seen Fatcessa ranting and raving about this last night. How Delgado just picked a fight with the fans that he just can't win. "Just ask ARod" he said.

    I am more pissed off that this non-stroy was the back cover of Newsday today.

    Give me a freaking break, who cares, he hit two bombs and that is all that should matter.

    I am pretty sure one was his 4 homerun game and the other his 400th.

    I've talked about this with my dad the other day.. But, I'm getting sick of the Mets fans booing everytime something doesnt go there way... We are becoming worse, actually much worse then Yankee fans! WE will Boo anybody no matter how well they played for us, they go on a little slump and the fans let them have it! Ever seen a Yankee fan boo Jeter during a slump?

    I applaud Delgado for doing that, I thought Beltran should have done the same a few years ago until Franco made him go out(although Beltran moreso deserved the Boos even though it was early April)

    Another thing I think the booing does is kill a rally.. Theres been numerous times, where we would be down a run, a man on 2nd base, and Reyes or whoever strikes out, then the fans Boo, and kills the whole inning... Let the guys play will ya!

    From the horses mouth.

    ďIt surprised me. The way I look at it, the fans here are very passionate, and you just donít know what theyíre gonna doÖYou hit a home run, shake hands with your friends, but you donít want to show any one up. The game goes on. We had a two run lead, it went to a three-run lead. Yes, itís a big runÖbut, I got a great deal of respect for the game and I donít think thatís a place for a curtain callÖWe appreciate the support of the fans, but weíre here to play the game. They pay me to hit the ball and drive in runs. I didnít think it was the right situation. Having said that, Iím not going to lie that I feel good and itís a lot better than the boos.

    PS: According to the Associated Press, Delgado, who has hit 432 career home runs, has only accepted two curtain calls during his 16-year career Ė once following his four-home run game in 2003, and again in 2006 following his 400th career home run.

    i don't really care if he does curtain calls or not.

    i only care if he can contribute to this team offensively on a consistent basis instead of being a hole in our lineup like he's been since last season.

    Im shocked there even talking about baseball to open up the show. The draft was a day ago!!! Any other city other than Boston and that is the main story in the country.

    Giving the finger to booing fans is taking on the fans. Not acknowledging a curtain call is far from taking on the fans. Hope this theme continues all year.
