The article reports that the baseball team New York Mets has traded first baseman Carlos Delgado, catcher Paul Lo Duca and free-agent closer Billy Wagner. One year after winning the bidding for righthander Pedro Martinez and center fielder Carlos Beltran, general manager Omar Minaya is delivering more star power to the Mets' new television network. As the baseball team New York Yankees can attest, the teams with the most individual talent don't always win. One reason the Mets need Delgado is center fielder Carlos Beltran hasn't proved he can carry a team.
