LO DUCA AVOIDS CAR CRASH DURING REPORT DISCUSSION: On the eve of the Mitchell Report announcement, Paul Lo Duca almost got out of any questioning - by almost getting into an auto accident:
DC SPORTS BOG listens in on a WFAN radio interview with the ex-Mets star. When asked if players were nervous about what the report was going to announce, Lo Duca got nervous on the road:”You know, to be honest, I probably should stay away from it, so I’ll have no comment, but to me I don’t think it’s really an issue. You know, all this stuff that’s been going on for the last three years, the probing [of] guys, doing this and that, it’s the kind of thing — Ooh, whoa! I’m driving, I almost got hit by a car!”
Phew! That was a close one. After his near collision, Lo Duca was then asked if he would be surprised by any of the names listed in the report:
“No, I’m not going to be, I don’t think you’re gonna be really surprised about who’s on the list. So I think it’s the kind of thing where a lot of the stuff was five, six, seven years ago and you know something? It’s over with. Get over with it, you know? You know what I mean?”
We bet Paul’s hoping his new employers can get over it, too.
