Poor Judgement On A New Level

David Lennon at On The Mets Beat, writes about Lastings Milledge and his rap career:

I know John Maine just suffered his first loss of the season, Cliff Floyd banged out three hits against his former team and Carlos Zambrano, the Mets' No.1 starter next year, turned in a nifty eight-inning audition at Shea this evening. But let's not lose sight of the fact that Lastings Milledge is on the verge of rap superstardom.

The Mets were not thrilled today to hear Milledge rapping with Manny D on a track called "On Ya Knees" that includes sexist language about women and liberal use of the N-word. MIlledge, or "L Millz" as he's called on the web site, apparently is a friend and manager of Manny D. It's always good for a player to have options if baseball doesn't work out, but the Mets surely wish his outside interests were a little more PC.
