I’m telling you Lucas Duda is primed to explode for the Mets this summer.
Nationally there’s not much buzz about him which is understandable, but even in the Met world he’s sorta remained under the radar which was a blessing to keep the pressure as long as possible.
But those days are likely over. Because when you’re playing on a NY team w/o many stars, in front of a die-hard fanbase desperate for someone, something to believe in…. and you’re a strapping young slugger who rockets moon shots in BP and THEN you hit a Grand Slam in early spring… the days of no media spotlight are over.
For better or worse… but BMF’s spidey sense tells me he’s gonna deliver despite the media glare.
Why does the mere fact that the Mets have decided to give David Wright a cortazone shot in his ribs to speed a plateauing recovery make me nervous?
