 WASHINGTON (AP) -Paul Lo Duca has an idea of what sort of reception he'll get when he returns to Shea Stadium as a visiting player.
He also knows how he'll choose to hear it.
``I've got a great last name, because if they're booing me, I can say they're saying, 'Duc,''' the Washington Nationals' catcher said with a laugh Sunday. ``I really don't care. To be honest with you, I really don't care.''
Lo Duca played two seasons with the New York Mets before signing a $5 million, one-year deal with the Nationals as a free agent this winter.
The Nationals open a three-game series at the Mets on Tuesday. Lo Duca thinks he'll be in the lineup that night, although his right hand was bruised when he was hit by a pitch in the third inning of Washington's 5-4 victory over Atlanta on Sunday.
He said he had a hard time gripping the bat when he hit in the fifth inning - he flied out to right - and he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth.
``Unless this is broken, I'm playing,'' Lo Duca said. ``My hand - it better get better.''
Asked his feelings about how his time in New York ended, Lo Duca said: ``Water under the bridge. I mean, I learned a long time ago you can't carry stuff around with you and hold grudges against people.''
``I'm a brutally honest person, and I tell it like it is. You don't like it, so be it,'' he continued. ``And they didn't like it.''
Lo Duca had only good words for the Mets' fans, saying: ``They stuck by me. I owe a lot to them.''
Now, the Mets? That's another story.
``I want them to lose every game,'' he said.
