Is it just me or is too big a deal being made about Paul Lo Duca returning to Shea Stadium? Maybe it is just because he is my least favorite National right now, but I don’t care that he is wondering how he will be greeted.
Also, Lastings Milledge returns to New York kind of triumphant (as triumphant as you can be two weeks into the season I suppose) with a .308 batting average. He seems much less concerned than Lo Duca about how he will be received. The two players the Mets got for Milledge, Brian Schneider and Ryan Church are doing fine in the Big Apple too.
