    Lastings - we hardly new ya.


    May 17, 2007 -- Mets General Manager Omar Minaya yesterday scolded Lastings Milledge for his raunchy rap song, which uses the n-word and refers to women as "bitches" and "ho's."
    "I had a conversation with Milledge and let him know that as an organization we don't approve of those lyrics. I had to let him know," said Minaya, who added that upper management will soon decide whether to take further action against the outfielder.

    "He totally understood why we felt that way and it's fair to say that after our conversation the team is going to review it and take it from there."

    Mets management discovered Tuesday that Milledge - a top prospect who played three major-league games with the Mets this season before being sent back to the minors - is moonlighting as the founder and CEO of Soul-ja Boi Records, which features rapper Manny D, a childhood friend of the outfielder's.

    Many of his songs include lyrics like "got a lot of d--ks for ya stupid a-- bitches."

    Milledge wrote a message on Manny D's personal MySpace page, explaining why he funds his music.

    "Everything he says in his songs is the truth, and that's what I really like about him! I will put any amount of money up on him because I know what he can do and ni---z down here in the south ain't doing what he doing."

    Milledge, on the Triple-A New Orleans disabled list with a sprained ligament in his right foot, has had a rocky start in the majors - last year he was yelled at by manager Willie Randolph and several teammates for his bad behavior.

    In high school, Milledge was expelled from Northside Christian School in St. Petersburg, Fla., because of accusations he fooled around with underage girls, some as young as 12 and 13.

    Milledge did not comment yesterday, although his father weighed in on the controversy.

    "That's today's society, that's what they want to hear," Tony Milledge said. "I'm not a fan of rap, but I can't tell him what he can and can't do. Lastings is in his own home making songs."

    Mets third baseman David Wright also weighed in, saying that Milledge "made some mistakes" but learned from them. "He's a normal, young guy."

    And you can guarandamntee that if he was half as good as the Mets thought he was going to be, this would be a non-issue.

    While Milledge is punching his ticket out of town, the Mets real star of the future is getting his first taste of the bigs at age 21 .. in 2 starts, Carlos Gomez is 4-for-9, 2 doubles, 2 RBI, stolen base and plays the outfield much better than Milledge ever could.
    And he's faster than Jose Reyes... or so Reyes says.

    No, normal young guys don't talk about slinging dick to stupid-ass bitches and stay in trouble. Nor do normal men get a chance to play in the bigs.

    Over/under on when Milledge is traded? I say between July 12-15, before the Mets go on a week-long West Coast trip against the Padres & Dodgers.

    Fuck you, David Wright is the star of the future!


    Mmmm David Wright.

    Considering his value will likely never be lower, I don't see why they would trade him now. They've passed up so many deals, they might as well keep him at this point.

    They probably won't move him until the off-season.. after he's had a chance to show some ability (and maybe the slightest hint of maturity) at Triple A

    And IJAG, my friend, despite his slow start David Wright already is a star!

    I know. But no one will eclipse him. That's my point.

    Sorry, TBF, but JDV constantly tells us about the hot chicks he pulls. I'm sure he slings some roid-shriveled dick to those stupid-ass bitches. And he could have walked on at UCLA or some shit, so of course normal guys do all that stuff. If JDV says it, you know it's true. SCOREBOARD!

    For real. Do these guys enjoy movies?

    Anyway, the hip hop attack is in full bloom.
