They said that about Ryan Howard before last year.

Not saying Duncan is Ryan Howard, but why not give the guy a chance to work through it? He'd be better off playing for a team that would.

I would probably bench him against lefties even if he gets the start.

First of all, I just like to whine.

Second of all, how can Duncan's potential be any worse than So Taguchi?

Third, how will he learn to hit lefties if he never faces them?

Fourth, here are Duncan's stats this year against LHP in only 9 AB:

4 for 9, 2 Runs, 2 2B's, 1 HR, 3 RBI, .444

His career avg against lefties may be lousy, but I think from his spring numbers and performance so far this year, he's an everyday player. I don't even care about fantasy anymore, this kid deserve a shot at playing every day regardless of the pitcher. 4 for 9 this year against lefties? Give me a break, TLR's drunk again.

By the way, Taguchi this year against lefties:

5 for 15, 1 Run, 0 HR, 0 RBI

The way the Cards' offense is going, you'd think it'd be in their best interests to get Duncan into a groove.

And their OF defense. That's been a knock on Duncan, but he made an awesome catch the other night and Taguchi/Wilson haven't looked very good.
