I know It happens more than we want to know. And i don't know Floridian law...but that is a felony known as rape in at least 48 states.

Even being so close to being 18....and him still being 22....it is what it is.

"The Rays have removed the Elijah Dukes distraction from their clubhouse, but have not cut ties with him entirely. The Rays optioned Dukes to Durham and placed him on the temporarily inactive list."

from lancaster

Ok. well then he shouldn't go to jail from that...but given the touchy nature of the subject and his known past history...people are going to judge him heavily for it.

Was he the one that threw the bat at the ump during a minor league game?

He had a nice start to the season but he needs a new team. I thought he might have been relevant in fantasy b but trouble seems to follow him and affect him on the field.

DC- totally agree, it was something that he should not have done and it was just one more thing for people to judge him by. My point was that people want to hang him for that and it simply is just not that big of a deal, it became one b/c of everything else. I know Elijah and what you hear is not the real story.

Exactly. He needs a change of scenary. He is in the same place he grew up, which is not a good thing and people have made up there minds here and it has effected his play. trust me he has the talent and if someone gives him a chance he will prove it.
