J.C. Romero pitched his first two innings of the spring yesterday. Now he will head off and join arms with a number of New York Mets on Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. "I'm going to go have some fun and put this all behind me for a minute or two," Romero said. "When I come back, spring training will be a lot shorter. " Romero is still bitter that he must serve a 50-game suspension at the start of the regular season because he tested positive for a banned substance last summer.

Astros aren't ripping up the clubhouse yet With the team 0-7 and last in the majors in nearly every offensive category, the Houston Astros had a welcome day off on Tuesday. "Level of frustration? I'd give it a four or a five," centerfielder Michael Bourn told MLB.com. "It's not to the point where we are like, 'Grrrr, we want to fight everybody' and we're arguing amongst each other. That's when it's a problem, but we don't have that problem. We just believe in each other and we know we can do better.

New York Mets slugger Carlos Delgado will have arthroscopic surgery today on his right hip, and there's no immediate word on when he might return to the lineup. The Mets, who entered yesterday leading the NL East by a half-game over the Phillies, said Delgado has a bone spur and a torn labrum in his hip. Team spokesman Jay Horwitz said no timetable for Delgado's return will be decided until after the operation. "The way Carlos was responding to all the things he was trying - and it wasn't getting any better - I wasn't too optimistic about it," Mets manager Jerry Manuel said.

With another brutal loss, the New York Mets kept tumbling toward another September collapse. Derrek Lee blooped a go-ahead double in the 10th inning off Luis Ayala, Aramis Ramirez followed with a two-run homer and the Chicago Cubs rallied from a four-run deficit to defeat the Mets, 9-6, last night at Shea Stadium. New York, which wasted Carlos Delgado's third-inning grand slam off Carlos Zambrano and a 5-1 lead, dropped into a tie with Milwaukee, which beat Pittsburgh last night, for the NL wild-card lead and remained 1 1/2 games behind the NL East-leading Phillies.

Carlos Delgado soared past Roger Clemens and became baseball's highest-paid player yesterday, agreeing to a record $68 million, four-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. "I've said it before and I'll say it again," Delgado said during a news conference in Toronto. "It's good to be back. I firmly believe we have the talent here to win and I'm here to win. I'd like to play my whole career in Toronto. " Delgado's average salary of $17 million breaks the previous mark of $15.45 million set by Clemens and the New York Yankees earlier this year when they agreed to what amounts to a two-year extension worth $30.9 million.

Geovany Soto didn't get the automatic home run he deserved, but it didn't make a difference last night as the visiting Chicago Cubs beat Houston, 7-2. Soto was credited with an inside-the-park homer in the fourth inning despite replays showing that it should have been an automatic home run. The ball bounced just to the right of the yellow line on the wall in left-center. Astros centerfielder Michael Bourn scooped it up and threw it home, but Soto scored easily before the throw got there.

NEW YORK - New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya wasn't happy that his team was eliminated from playoff contention with an 8-1 loss to the Washington Nationals yesterday, but he had time to praise the National League East champion Phillies. "As much as you hated to watch them play, a part of you said, 'Man, these guys are really coming after you,' " Minaya said of the Phillies, who twice swept the Mets late in the season. "So I tip my cap off to the Phillies. " And he kept tipping his cap to them, especially to shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

The Atlanta Braves have made a one-year offer to free-agent outfielder Johnny Damon that is worth at least $5 million, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Damon, 36, batted .282 with 24 homers and 82 RBIs for the New York Yankees last season. The Yankees have added Curtis Granderson from Detroit. Damon would be "a pretty legit leadoff hitter who has some experience," Braves third baseman Chipper Jones told the newspaper. "It would make us a deeper team. . . . You can't beat having that experience in your clubhouse and on your team, on the field and somewhere at top of your lineup.

The Phillies could be seeing a lot more of Johnny Damon, a major thorn in their side during the World Series. A person familiar with the negotiations tells the Associated Press that the Atlanta Braves have made an offer to Damon, the free-agent outfielder who batted .286 with 24 homers for the New York Yankees last year. Atlanta's offer is believed to be for 1 year and include deferred money. Damon's agent, Scott Boras, has said he is seeking at least a 2-year deal. Damon, 36, likely would bat leadoff for the Braves.

It had to come to this We don't mean to pass judgment, but what kind of country are we living in when the owner of a ball club is dunned for lighting up a cigar to celebrate his team making it to the playoffs after a 15-years drought? The dunning happened in America's heartland, Cincinnati to be precise. Not long after the Reds slammed the Astros Tuesday night to win their first division title in 15 years, owner Bob Castellini passed out cigars to players and coaches whooping it up inside the clubhouse.

All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes has been told to rest and refrain from athletic activity for 2 to 8 weeks until his thyroid levels normalize, another blow to the New York Mets before Opening Day. Centerfielder Carlos Beltran already is expected to miss the first month of the season following right knee surgery Jan. 13. Reyes appears likely to also start the season on the disabled list. "It doesn't look good right now. " Mets general manager Omar Minaya said yesterday. "We will have to prepare for that.

Last season, the Mets used 117 different lineups (not including the pitcher) in 162 games. Almost every regular spent time on the disabled list, making for what resulted in a lost season. Yet, despite losing 92 games last season, the Mets haven't been very proactive in the free-agent market, outside of signing leftfielder Jason Bay. Instead, much of the hope in Queens relies on everyone's being healthy again. Considering Jose Reyes played 36 games and Carlos Beltran 81, getting a full season out of those two would be like a new acquisition.

Carlos Delgado might have played his last game for the New York Mets. The slugger had another setback while rehabbing from right hip surgery and it appears increasingly unlikely that he'll be able to return to the lineup before the season ends. Sidelined since May 11, Delgado tried again to run outside last weekend but his hip became inflamed. He said the recent soreness in his side and back also were related to the hip injury. "It's been a long, kind of frustrating 4 months," Delgado said yesterday.

Jonathan Sanchez, an unlikely candidate, pitched the majors' first no-hitter this season last night, dominating the San Diego Padres with an array of pitches in the San Francisco Giants' 8-0 victory. The 26-year-old lefthander returned to the rotation after a nearly 3-week demotion to the bullpen - and he only got the call because 303-game winner Randy Johnson went on the disabled list earlier this week with a shoulder injury. Sanchez, who had a five-start winless stretch in which he went 0-4, carried a perfect game into the eighth inning before third baseman Juan Uribe booted a routine grounder by Chase Headley for an error.
