LoDuca Shoes Arrive in Camp On-Time












Paul LoDuco, pictured here with Mets celebrity spring-camper Henry Rollins, carries his new shoes into Mets training camp, go here for picture.

Sports Illustrated is reporting newly acquired Paul LoDuca's fondness for the two-hole. According to the SI report:
"Whenever you want to go, you go,'' Lo Duca said. "I'm the guy that's going to move guys over, bunt guys over, whatever it takes. Especially on this team if I hit in the two-hole. I don't care where I hit as long as I'm in the lineup every day. I've hit in the two-hole a lot, so I'm comfortable in that position.''

How the hell's that gonna work, you ask? Can the tennis ball machine help Beltran jump over the new Italian backstop?

Team officials are tight-lipped about their plans, but on location here in Taiwan, I was able to secure a picture, snapping a quick shot during a Nike factory tour with my cell phone when my handlers were distracted by the 8 year old girl caught in the lacing machine that manufactures the new Kobe Bryant "Mambo."

The shoe, which Nike plans to market as the "Loducinator," should reach stores in time for Christmas.

    Hey all, do me a favor and sign my petition. It will help many fans in CT be able watch the mets this season. Im hoping to get my local cable provider to consider reaching an agreement with SNY. Even if you don’t subscribe to Charter Digital Cable, do me a favor and sign it, because you will ultimately be helping support your team because you know a lot more people will be watching them on tv this season… only takes a second. Thanks everybody!

    Hi,
    I wanted to see if I could send you an email regarding a movie for which I'm doing PR. The film is called "Game6" and the background of the movie is set during Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.

    Thanks!
