well, if you are lucky, Dukes will still be down there by that time.that'd most likely be bad for the Nationals, as it would mean that Dukes was a bust. But I'm pretty sure you don't actually care about the Nationals at all anyway, so long as you can see your mancrush live and in person.
can anyone post the article that says dukes is heading for columbus? i'm still searching...
Meanwhile, outfielder Elijah Dukes, who is on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain, will play for Triple-A Columbus on Saturday to face more difficult starting pitching. He is currently playing for Class A Potomac, and has gone 3-for-14 (.215) with an RBI."Dukes has made progress," said Bowden. "He ripped a double, [and] it was an extremely hard-hit ball. He also struck out three times and struggled with the breaking ball [on Wednesday.] His timing was a little off, he looked good defensively and he ran well. ... So after tonight at Potomac, he's going to go to Columbus and face a little more difficult pitching. I'm not going to put a timetable on when he's back. It could be two days, three days, four days, a week. I'm not going to do that. I told him today in a meeting that his bat will determine when he comes here. That's [what's] going to decide. It's not going to be me. It's not going to be him. It's going to be the bat that decides."
Anyone going Saturday?
thanks...personally, i don't think jimbo is really in a position to be picky. but whatever...dukes should be up in no time.
There are lots of guys on the team hitting better than that. I'm sure Dukes has more to contribute, but hitting .215 in AA ball doesn't exactly scream "bring me up!"
They should cut Mackowiak and bring up Langerhans now. Langerhans is a gifted fielder, and it seems he's solved his hitting problems. Not that Lenny can't screw him up again, but he's hot now, get him up here.
