Elijah Dukes

Another Dukes' post? Oh yeah.

This is an article focused solely on Dukes. It is worth reading if only for this quote from the now-affable, previously-surly Dukes:

"You've got guys like [Albert] Pujols, who nobody ever talked about and he just came out of nowhere. And that's kind of what I see myself as -- one of those guys who breaks in and is just one of those good ballplayers."

From your lips to God's ears!

One important note, other than Dukes expression of confidence in his ability, the article quotes Dukes saying the game has slowed down for him and he can judge the pitches as the leave the pitcher's hand.

He's going to be a good player. There are two questions, though. Where? When?
