Rapping Up His Prospect Status

If you have Lastings Milledge in a fantasy keeper league because you think that he's going to be some kind of star, forget about it.

Milledge has talent, but he doesn't have the sense given a lamppost. Milledge spent much of his time during his callup last year infuriating his teammates with his ego and poor work habits. This latest is probably pretty close to the last straw for the Mets.

Major league baseball teams will make exceptions for players with extra talent. But it only goes so far. Teams are also very efficient at cutting out flakes, head cases, and players with poor attitudes. Milledge is very close to following this career path.
