Milledge Sent Down…

According to MLB.com, the Washington Nationals sent down Lastings Milledge today. Though Milledge is still only 24, I just don’t think he will ever become the player many thought he would become.

Dukes gets the call

Dukes gets the call

Milledge hit leadoff and played CF on Opening Day. Unfortunately for the Nationals, it took them a week to realize that Milledge couldn’t do either. Sending Milledge down is a good move by the Nationals. Maybe Milledge will learn how to play CF down at Syracuse¬†but more importantly, maybe Milledge will grow up.

Elijah Dukes, who is arguably the Nationals best player and who was sitting on the bench Opening Day for reasons nobody will understand, will now be the Nationals starting CF. Dukes has put up .381/1/5 in his last 6 games
