Lastings Milledge is not in the line-up today because of Carlos Zambrano. I understand that. The Mets will load their line-up with lefty hitters. I understand the theory, I really do.
I just think there are times when it is stupid. Zambrano gives all hitters trouble because he’s good. But, isn’t Milledge supposed to be good, too?
I know David Newhan has to play, but doesn’t Milledge have a better chance of making something happen? (Let Marlon Anderson play left and Milledge center).Ã‚Â And, how is Milledge going to get better against such high caliber competition if he’s not put in them?
