I'm sure that's true in most cases, which is a shame. The bad stuff is the more interesting stuff and so that is what the media fixates on. I'm in school to be a journalist because I hate the media.

No, he needs a vasectomy and a lobotomy. Or, at least a box of condoms and a parole officer. The guy is on the verge of making millions upon millions and is too dumb to police his inner thug. I don’t feel bad when I say that it’s pretty funny to watch go down. Just being honest.

yes it does IMO. I bet you think it was his wife, like most people do and he was not. He was talking to a guy who his wife was cheating on him with. I am sure if someone found out there wife was cheating on them and knew the guys number they may call him and leave a message, do i agree with the kids part no, but i can tell you if my wife cheated on me and i just found out i may call and say i will kill that man

Can you guys take your arguement to PM? Keep this to fantasy relevant info on Dukes, like speculation on where he possibly gets traded to?

Sorry, i know better :/

My thought is he will be moved soon. They sent him to the "minors" and is on the temporary inactive list, which shows me they are looking to move him and dont want him playing and getting hurt. Florida and Washington have shown interest

He's going to Oakland. They just cut their own "misgiuded" outfielder Milton Bradley. Good move by them , Elijah will be 10x the player Bradley is. I don't think Elijah will be fantasy relevant until next year. And if he rises from the ashes and makes a career out of this good on him.

This is a little off subject but did any Prospectus subscribers notice in the Player Forecast M anager update on the 19th that Dukes was bumped up to the #12 OF in a 5X5 league? That shocked me when I saw it and now I find it really funny.

No worries, I know you were trying.

I wish the Pirates would take a chance on a talent like this. I know they won't, but this is the kind of risk they have to take if they ever want to be competitive again. We've got the retread bullpen arms that TB could use, but we're so risk averse we won't do it.

I really have no idea where he could end up.
