I picked up Duncan instead of Markakis in several leagues about a week and a half ago. Can't complain about Duncan, but now I wish I had grabbed Markakis too.

Did get him in one league today, good thing since this 3 HR game is getting him picked up everywhere.

No hype really, but I talked about his longer term prospects in several threads. He's done even better than I expected last year.

Same here ;-D - given how Hirsh's performance blasted my team for a whooping negative 9 points :~( , am going to need Markakis' bat to make up the difference :-o
