Usually if a player is ‘robbed,’ it means that someone took a base hit or home run away from him with excellent glove work.
In Lucas Duda’s case, the literal sense of the word holds true. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets’ first baseman had approximately $1,600 worth of possessions stolen.
Lucas Duda was the victim of theft, including having his checkbook and a ‘knock-off Breitling watch’ swiped, he told police, according to the Daily News.
The primary suspects are the moving company that the Mets hired to move Duda’s belongings to a new living space. A formal complaint has been filed.
