I read the article this morning. They run the guy out of town with their racially incendiary pieces and then cover their a$$ with a fluff piece about Mom's life. It doesn't undo the damage that the Slander Pete Times is responsible for, nor will it undo the damage the Slander Pete Times did to Duke's career.

Apparently Dukes threatend Tompkins, the SPT Rays beat writer. He verbal threatened him. Not surprised. Looks like the Marlins are interested in him

The Slander Pete Times "reported" that Dukes told him to f-off.

Tompkins is the latest piece of shi@ to distort/slant/whatever about Dukes at the Slander Pete Times, so Duke's reaction doesn't surprise me.

I love these little shi@-stirring writers who completely ruin a person's life and then have the balls to approach the same person like nothing's wrong-and then feign outrage that the person is mad at them. The lowest form of life on this earth-SPT journalists.

Surprised it didn't make the front page, with Tomkins laying a cellphone recording at his press conference!

Dukes to the Marlins would be a good fit for them, but I'm not sure Miami is the place for Elijah right now...

I agree, i think he needs to get farther away from the area, plus that is the area he is originally from.
