I went with Duncan last night and was very pleased to see that 2 spot go up in the top of the first. Thome was 3/4...who do you think is going to have the better second half? I am thinking Thome with power numbers...should I try to move Duncan while he is on fire?
I picked up Duncan a week ago because he was awesome the 2nd half of last year. When he's been healthy this year, he's been terrific. I expect him to be a solid source of power, and he's now hitting most days in cleanup (behind Pujols).
Thome has been hitting lately, and the Sox offense may be waking up a bit (Konerko, Dye). Both are pretty good options, but if I were to trade one of them I would trade Thome, because I think you can get better value. I don't think many people believe in Duncan just yet, while Thome is proven. Hope this helps, it's just my opinion.
