Despite his considerable talents, the Mets organization soured on Milledge's cocky attitude to the point were they preferred mediocrity to his presence in the clubhouse. While Milledge rubs people the wrong way, Elijah Dukes is a complete sociopath. He has six arrests under his belt. His wife has a restraining order against him for threatening to kill her. He just knocked up the 17 year old foster child of one of his relatives. Not a good dude.
Add these two to lazy, underachieving, and seemingly uncoachable and Wily Mo Pena and you may have the most volatile outfield ever assembled. The possibilities range from:
- They all grow up, become All-Stars, and dominate the National League for the next 12 years
- This whole thing ends like Reservoir Dogs
- Anything in between
This is going to be fun!
