Duncan had another big day today, the boy is raking to start the season. I know LaRussa will not keep sitting Ludwick this much, and they have an extra OF with Rasmus up, but Duncan looks healthy this year for sure... anyone else buying? 30 HRS possible this year?
I bought in. Got tired of waiting the last two weeks for Cameron Maybin to just show a little life on my bench and I started Duncan today. Nice day 3 for 4 with 2 runs and 2 rbi. He does look healthy and he is actually hitting left handed pitching right now, as well. Hopefully, with that the case maybe he sits less. But definently does has 30 hr power. And you have to love where he hits in the lineup!

exactly. when he is healthy he hits the ball hard. he looks healthy now after some kind of experimental neck surgery in the offseason, but there is the ever present risk that he chokes on his tobacco whilst attempting to play the field.
i wouldnt worry about playing time. TLR thinks of chris as a son. i am not saying he gets preferential treatment, but he won't get cheated out of his fair share of at bats.
