Had the chance to see Paul Lo Duca. He says the rehab of his left thumb is on schedule and he’ll be ready for spring training. He also said he wants to stay with the Mets beyond this season, but there have been no talks yet about an extension.
“I like what we have here and I think we can take it to the next step,’’ he said. “I would like to be here when the new stadium opens.’’
Catcher is a wear-and-tear position, so I don’t see the Mets doing anything with Lo Duca until after this season.
