Paul LoDuca: Missing ingredient?

From time to time I will mention that I think Paul LoDuca was a missing piece from these recent Mets teams.   Paul is up there now so I’m not saying he’s the magic potion, but this excerpt from Metsblog’s interview with John Maine caught my eye:

Matthew Cerrone:  Was there a specific catcher you liked working with?

John Maine:  I liked Paul LoDuca, just because when I’m out there he got of my attitude.  Brian Schneider was more technically sound than him, LoDuca just had this way about him, this attitude about him.  You’d feel bad to let him down… It was like, if you don’t go out there and do your job he’d chew you out.  I like that.
