Glad to hear you all rate Dukes so highly... for some reason I had gotten the impression from other threads that his fielding skill was so-so
most of that is reaction to AZ's schoolgirl antics. it is like he is purposely trying to be so annoying that it makes us all hate Dukes. then when Dukes plays well, he can say "I told you so". I foresee a record number of ignores when Dukes hits his first HR as a National.
he's not a gold-glove caliber outfielder, but he's solid, and won't hurt us playing from any OF slot.
i'm just going on what I've read about him.
