Elijah Dukes gets huge raise

Postby KCollins1304 » Thu Feb 11, 2010 7:59 pm

From rotoworld:

The Nationals and Elijah Dukes have agreed to a one-year, $444,000 million contract.
Dukes was eligible to have his contract renewed, but both parties agreed on a $32,500 raise. Dukes slipped from a productive '08 to a .729 OPS in 2009 over 416 at-bats, but will enter spring training as the starting right fielder. The 26-year-old has massive potential, so don't overlook him as a potential sleeper. He is eligible for arbitration for the first time following the upcoming season.

He can settle out of court with many battered spouses off of that salary.

Maybe this is the year he puts it all together and goes 25/25? More likely he pulls a Chris Henry. :-/
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
