What’s on your mind this morning? Need to vent? Have a theory or idea? Is there something you want me to look into? Go right ahead.
Do you think they went about it wrong, he’s a veteran and should have been able to handle the news prior to the start. To pitch lights out and then suddenly be pulled, for a veteran thats embarrassing. I think Park will have a good year he strikes alot out and only pitched 11 innings last year after the A-S break. When El Duque goes down he should be a starter. Hopefully he isnt too disgruntled.
To Ed (RE: Handling of Park)
Maybe they should have told him, I don’t know. Park is talking like this is a surprise, but I don’t see it as such. If this were an either-or competition, then the loser would be gone, right? Well, it’s not that way. They are giving him a chance to stay in another capacity. That seems fair to me. And, isn’t being reliever on the major league level better than the minor leagues?
I think after 2-3 more games the Mets will name Lastings Milledge the starting right fielder.. and will place Shawn Green on the trading block..
Why else would Milledge still be getting at bats this late into spring?
The man is hitting .373 looking amazing.. vs a declining VET who hasn’t proved he can hit anymore and who plays horrible defense..
I have my blog of my own if you would like to check it out
Milledge is not gettting the RF spot. Its Greens to lose. Green is a notorious slow starter in ST. He will do his usual .275 hiting during the regular season. I love how everyone is harping on Milledges 17 hits in spring training that he has gotten vs mostly minor league pitching. We saw milledge vs major league pitching hit .244 last year. Green will be the starting right fielder and theres 6 million reasons why.
So if Milledge is doing it off minor league pitching then so is SHAWN GREEN.. so i guess that means green cant hit MLB pitching either..
Milledge facing minor league pitchers 371
Green facing minor league pitchers 1—
If Green started and played for the entire year he would hit
.269 13 homeruns 65 rbi
HE PLAYS HORRIBLE DEFENSE HE HAS NO RANGE HE CANT THROW
HE COST US GAME 2 WITH HIS DIVE THAT LET IN 3? RUNS HE IS HORRIBLE GET HIM OFF THIS TEAM NOW
