Milledge Proving People Wrong

Marc Raimondi at SNY writes about Lastings Milledge and how he is proving the nay sayers wrong this season:

Milledge is hitting .286 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 19 games. He sports a .492 slugging percentage and has struck out only nine times in 63 at-bats.

"I'm not trying to carry a team. That's not my position," Milledge said. "My position is to give this team a little bit of spunk."

Which could be exactly what the Mets need. They're 9-7 since Milledge was called up - not a staggering record, but good enough to stay 3 ½ games ahead of the Phillies as of Sunday.

"I'm gonna bring excitement, I'm gonna bring me," Milledge said. "You can't really say what the team needs, that's just what I'm gonna bring."

I am afraid that this statement is not correct"I'm gonna bring excitement, I'm gonna bring me," Milledge said. "You can't really say what the team needs, that's just what I'm gonna bring.
".I would appreciate if you can further elaborate this.Thank you.
