Heck if you say "anonymous sources" told you, the information doesn't even have to be factually correct. If it ends up being wrong, you can just blame it on "anonymous sources" .. thats the beauty of "anonymous sources".

Besides, this is the internet.
share :>



I really wish i could, but there are only a few people who know about this situation and i have told them i would keep if confidential. It is serious though and i hope for Elijah's sake that they can get around it

I've got to come back and defend the Times again. I'm currently working with the Poynter Institute, who owns the SPT, and there is no institution more devoted to quality journalism than these guys. They are the authority on the institution -- newspapers all over the world call them to ask for help and advice. Seriously. Poynter is as good as it gets, and they put that into the Times.

Other than the few stupid columnists I've mentioned, SPT has been very fair to Dukes. The most recent story emphasizes in the first paragraph that it's just what the girl told the police, and follows that up by saying that it isn't a crime. It's their job to report this stuff. If somebody accuses somebody famous of something, the paper has to report the accusation. Would you want journalists to ignore the entire Valerie Plame issue because nothing had been proven against anyone?

I'm not close to the situation but he "allegedly" knocked up a 17 year old who was in the care of his foster parents. I think this is the story people are talking about. Unfortunately I can't remember where I read this but its out there....

Yes this is the story that broke in the paper today, it happened over a month ago, but there is something else he is also dealing with

By the way, Dukes is not in the lineup today

TB decisions are mind boggling. I understand that they are not the most saavy managers of baseball but still... If you are trying to unload Dukes, then what is the point of sitting him? It just doesn't make any sense to me but maybe someone has an explanation?

I guess he asked for the day off apparently and they obliged him. He was not in the lineup today b/c they were at home and did not want him to go through that i guess. He will be in the lineup tommorw. He had a heated convo with Friedman (Rays GM) today before the game in the dugout, i was within 15 feet, he was real pi$$ed about not playing
