With Lo Duca in the line-up, you’ve got the ‘killer instinct’ you want. What’s the status of his suspension? You’ve also intimated that there is more to the Lo Duca story than what has already surfaced…...are there contract issues?
To Annie (RE: Lo Duca)
Lo Duca’s hearing won’t be until next week. The day is still TBA. Lo Duca will be a free agent after the season. He wants to return, but the club won’t talk until after the playoffs. It might be interesting to see how his comments play out. If he’d not brought back that’s a question that needs to be asked.
Completely off topic, but to all Mets fans anxious and curious about Citi Field, go to Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. I was at yesterday’s game, my first in Philly, and all I can say is “wow”. If Citi Field is merely as nice as that ballpark (apparently it’s supposed to be nicer), we’re in for a real treat in ‘09!
whoa….dont compare us to the phillies…
anyways, been hearing a lot of reports of mets going after paulino from the bucs in lieu of lo duca’s uncertainty in contract status being that this is his walk year. i dunno, in the short time he’s been here, he’s been a fire in the clubhouse and i am very impressed with the intangibles that lo duca brings to the table.
John, being that they’ll prob need to find an everday secondbasemen, at least one corner outfielder,and probably a starting pitcher this offseason, how much risk you think the Mets take as far as letting Paulie walk and hoping they find a suitable replacement? Isn’t Castro’s contract up as well on top of it.
To Dan (RE: Lo Duca)
I hear you loud and clear. There’s no guarantee they’ll make a deal to land another catcher and the free-agent market is thin. Lo Duca has been a productive, important player for them. Letting him go would be a risk.
I know that Cheshire native Brad Ausmus will be a free agent after this year – would the Mets have any interest in him?
I was at Friday’s game and have been to CBP a bunch of times. It’s very nice but not amazing. Compared to the Vet anything is very nice though. I’m hoping Citi Field will be nicer.
