IMO, it boils down to this.

Milledge:
higher BA
better OFer
better arm

Strawberry:
More power
More of an RBI guy


I'm saying steals are even at this point but it's really hard to say. I do think Milledge is faster but when Darryl came up teams were running like crazy.

Milledge should hit for higher AVG as Darryl's best year with the Mets he only hit .284

Would it be safe to say if he continues to produce that he will see time even with Floyd and Nady in a crowded outfield???? Can they really send him back down if he keeps hitting and fielding the way he is???
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

i think it depends on how he does in the next week or so, if he continues to rake like he is now i dont see any way they could send him down, so in that case id think the mets would look to trade nady or floyd and have milledge and chavez back up all 3 of with milledge getting more playing time. However if he reverts to how he was playing his first few games, and made a key overthrow, and he was batting under 100 throught his first few games, id think theyd send him back down for the next few weeks to get some more seasoning untill they open up a perminant of spot for him.

I agree with this - comparisons are tricky and it basically boils down to them both being talented OF prospects (though I would give Straw the edge in raw talent).

BTW - Video of his throw from last night should be shown to all little leaguers looking for the textbook crow hop ;-D ;-D

Umm i hope i read the right article. The only comparison he made was that he felt some wierd tingling sensation right before Daryl would hit a hr, and that he did too when Lastings hit that hr against SF...

That is an awesome quote. Too bad, like many great ones he succumbed to the pleasures of money.....

Am I the only one that got this joke? lol

Darn Phillies fans. I can just see a remake of The Simpsons' episode with Lastings having a tear run down his cheek after that jeer.

Anyway, Steve Somers on WFAN compared him to Willie Mays. He is always amusing, and made sure to qualify his comparison by saying we have 22 more years to find out the answer to the question. And Milledge was off to a better start because Willie went 0-16 when he first came up with the Giants. He cracks me up.

I concur. Hopefully he'll stay in right permanently once Xavier returns.

Lastings > Floyd + X

OK, I'm desperate for SBs ... Mets fans, can you tell us how aggressive Randolph is with the steal sign ... the Mets a running team or not? ...

Hypothetically, if Milledge stays in the 8 hole for the rest of the season, how many SBs would you guess? I know he was 8 for 14 not too good in the minors.

Thanks in advance!
