Paul Lo Duca Signs with Rockies
Paul Lo Duca is getting one last shot — he has signed a minor-league deal with the Colorado Rockies.
The Mets were never interested, since they do not have a need for a catcher nor for a backup, righthanded-hitting first baseman who can also play the outfield in a pinch. We went over that in November.
Strange, of all the teams in MLB, Colorado seemed the least likely to be a landing spot for the veteran catcher. The Rockies, after all, have that holier-than-thou thing going on up in the mountains, and Lo Duca has a history of engaging in vices such as betting on the horses, cheating with PEDs, and having affairs with teenage girls. But Jesus forgives, and perhaps Paulie will find his salvation a mile above sea level.
