He can still be productive the rest of the way, but I guarantee a rough patch is coming up ahead. Sell high if you can.

He has a 3.30 FIP, and it's only dropping after this start. I don't think there's much of a point in selling high if you aren't going to get something very good in return anyway.

What an awesome late pick this guy was. ;-D

A guy in my league dropped him for Dontrelle Willis a while back, and I got ridiculed for using my waiver pick on him. :-D

Sigh. The Duke was a free agent on our wire until about 3 weeks ago, but I refused to buy into his statistics. Now I feel really bad about it, my biggest rival in the league picked him up (on the other hand, I got Nolasco's recent hot run, so I'm pretty pleased about that).

A guy in my league traded Chipper and Howard for Duch, Tex, and Longoria. In the comments section he equated Duch with Chipper. 8-o
