Yeah because apparently they have so many better options. ;-7


Either he figures Jody Gerut or Jose Bautista are going to make some huge splash with the team (I can believe it from Jose but not Jody), or Duffy will hit so poorly early on that they bring up McCutchen after a hot start in AA... :-?

Not that I think those wouldnt happen but i think if the pirates are doing as well as everyone has hyped i could see them signing a centerfielder FA if Duffy struggles. On the other end if the pirates are struggling and duffy isnt doing well I think McCutcheon will be called up or they will go with a committee in the CF.

I am not sold on Duffy at all as an everyday CF.

Chris Duffy - sleeper or stinker?

Postby kemper5 » Sun Feb 11, 2007 1:00 pm

No way I think Duffy struggles again. Looking at his minor league stats and what he did when he returned to the Majors last year, I think he will be allright.

In the minors he hit .317, .301, .309 & .308

Last year after the recall he hit .282 and was great at the end when in Sept he hit .336.. I think he will be fine ;-D

I really hope so. I think he could be the missing link along with Laroche this year.

I'd rather have Duffy than Freel, Freel has pretty much proven he can't play every day and succeed at this point.

Duffy - Lead Off?

Postby kev8821 » Tue Mar 27, 2007 11:31 am

Is Duffy leading off daily for Pittsburgh? I read that they were going to try to use his speed to produce some runs.

Anyone know of a site that shows the projected daily lineup for offense?

Duffy is certain to be the Pirates lead-off hitter, in spite of his horrible spring and inability to take a walk.

Pirates Projected Lineup (When/if Sanchez is healthy)

1. CF Duffy
2. SS Wilson
3. 2B Sanchez
4. LF Bay
5. 1B LaRoche
6. RF Nady
7. 3B Bautista
8. C Paulino

I agree...but for the love of fantasy gods, why can't they bat Wilson 8th? They would be so much better...SOOOOOOO much better.

Duffy goes very late in drafts so even if he disappoints, it doesnt hurt too much because you normally spend a very low pick on him. I like him to hit .285 with 30 SB's though.
