I just dont understand why Dukes gets the spot. He has no speed and he isnt hitting all that well. Besides the one homer every now and then.
because Dukes has hit 8 HR and DY has hit 4. Also, Dukes has been more patient with at bats than delmon and has more speed
and tne fact is think about the line up.
you keep power at 2nd then you have crawford 3rd and then wiggy power at 4th then 5 tool at 5 in delmon and looking like 5 tool at 6 or 2 or 1. its a good mix and a lot of times it messes the other managers game plan up...
trust me be the look of things, things are panning out for maddon and his line up strategy
