    Lastings Milledge

    Where is he going to play? He is a CF

    Floyd in Left
    Beltran in Center
    Nady in Right
    Where would he play in the middle of this year when they bring him up?

    Rotate in. Give those guys some breaks, God knows Beltran takes a lot of them.

    I don't think he'll be up unless there's an injury to any of the starters.

    And if he gets called on before that. The mets will lose a year of Arbitration. And they don't want to do that.

    Will we see Milledge this year or will we have to wait till 07? I think as a 4th Outfielder on our team he can get a lot of valuable playing experience this year plus he is already doing very well in the minors.

    When he comes up he is coming up to start, not to ride the pine.

    I think he's playing left and its next year, because Cliff Floyd's Contract expires, I'm not sure what happens if they call him up this year

    If he's got a legitimate shot at ROY, he's not going to come up as a backup unless it's in September. The press coverage of a ROY is too huge to pass up, and neither is that kind of talent.

    I wish my team had a big time prospect ready to go
