Perhaps the most telling thing GM Omar Minaya said this afternoon was admitting teams do look into off the field incidents in trade talks. The Mets aren’t happy with Lastings Milledge’s release of a rap song “Bend Ya Knees,” which has all the stuff you would expect. Basically, it was mild in comparison to what Don Imus said about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.
The song had sexually implicit lyrics and liberal use of the N-word.
The Mets aren’t saying they are trying to trade Milledge, but that the question was asked and somewhat answered means this isn’t a dead issue.
I’m not asking for a music review, but what are your thoughts on this? Should the Mets reprimand Milledge for embarrassing the organization? Did Milledge take a step back? After his positive image spring, is this a step back? Should the Mets get rid of him or continue to put up with him?
