Bob says Dukes is a "much better than average" outfielder.... ???
well, AZ heat flashes aside, the report on Dukes *is* that he is a VERY good player all-around. extreme Power Bat with above-average plate discipline, and a very solid fielder in all three outfield positions.
none of his faults, as stated by scouts and experts, have anything to do with what he does on the field. as far as I've read, between the lines he's a flat-out stud, but he's an extreme headcase off the field.
the question with Dukes has never really been "can he play?", it has always been "can he stay out of trouble?".
AZ actually isn't far off base in terms of Dukes' actual talent. it's just that AZ overdoes it by carrying on like a horny schoolgirl about it.
which makes him annoying as hell.
