Is It Lastings Or Ladell?

Hi kids.

Just wanted to keep you informed on old friends, and alert you to the new craze in Washington, where Lastings Milledge has taken to a new celebration style during home runs. You see, apparently high fives are more for fans than for third base coaches. So when Lastings rounds third base after a home run, he ... wait for it ... takes an imaginary handoff from third base coach Tim Tolman. You can see such handoff in video form here (done after his home run made the score Milwaukee 3, Washington 1). I guess Milledge wants to be a two-sport athlete.

So I ask this: Are the Milwaukee Brewers going to be extra motivated on Sunday to beat them? Or does that only apply when Milledge wears blue and orange? Funny how that works.

The folks at Nats 320, who made me aware of this new craze (thanks), write this letter to Lastings in response. So much for getting his "grown man" on.

Keep dancin' Lastings.

Thanks for the acknowledgement. Lastings is going to hurt Washington--if he keeps it up. So far--it's all about Number 44--not the team.

I'm not trying to be a smartass here. But how does hitting a homerun count as being selfish?

"Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again."
