Delgado Option Details

ESPN's Jayson Stark has the details on Carlos Delgado's 2009 option.

Delgado needs to amass 30 "awards points" over 2005-08 for the option to change from $12MM to $16MM.  He has five points in the bank from '05.  To get the other 25, Delgado will need to finish in the top six in MVP voting and win World Series MVP.  If Delgado reaches the 30 points, the $16MM is not an option - it vests.  Under those circumstances, the Mets probably would not mind.

Still, most likely the Mets will be faced with a $12MM option or a $4MM buyout, an easy call to exercise.
