Maybe you’ve noticed the Mets’ brass are reluctant to be critical of Lastings Milledge for his mistakes in judgment. Most everything is passed off as a mistake of youth. Sounds reasonable. Then again, could it be they don’t want to say anything negative as to not discourage any would-be buyer as the trade deadline approaches?
It stands to reason by being positive they are downplaying any baggage that might drive a team away from dealing.
