With the New York tabloids chasing Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca‘s alleged infidelity as deftly as he does 19-year-olds, we thought it might be helpful to point out some missed warning signs, like this passage in a July 17 Sports Illustrated cover story:

For his part, Lo Duca seems ever in search of an argument, whether getting in the grill of his pitchers when they lose focus, spiking the baseball in a fit of anger at the feet of umpire Angel Hernandez or barking at Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez for styling too much after hitting a home run. “That’s just me,” says Lo Duca, whom [Mets closer Billy] Wagner refers to as Captain Red Ass. “Must be the Italian blood.”
