So if he hits 3HRs tomorrow then he's Babe Ruth?

As I stated on another thread, he is very tough to watch right now. Something HAS to improve markedly, either his fielding or hitting, before he becomes of any value to this team or some other team. Right now, he couldn't get a job as a DH.

That's scary bad.

If he eventually becomes a legit power hitter then it will be worth it
if not then he wil be gone in 2014, since they aren't going to be contending this season they
have time to give him a real chance (a full season) this year.

lol is this thread serious? 7 at bats into spring training and we're already saying Duda is doomed? or are we just looking for something to complain about already? what a joke

He's *supposed* to be someone we can count on to drive in runs too, not just hit for power, from either the 5 or 6 slot. But right now with all these swings and misses, well, nothing good comes out of swings and misses.

But I'm with you, give him a full year to see what they've got.

OK, so I wouldn;t expect you to post anything positive about any Met player who has a good spring, correct? Spring training means nothing as far as wins and losses, it means a lot to players who are trying to prove themselves and make teams. If Duda was a great player then I wouldn't worry. But the fact is he is not a very good player.

You know that he is not going to be a star so why would you be upset if he starts the season(ST) slow?

I see many posts on the board about players who are looking impressive after 2 spriong games. However, when someone is not doing weel it doesn't matter because it is spring training. Which is it?

Exactly. Dont you know Wilmer Flores will be 2013 MVP.

It is both. Players fighting for a spot on the team are going all out to impress. While players that have a spot may be working on specific parts of their game.

So some doing well can be praised and others not doing as well we can be patient with. Wright has had 3 abs and no hits and, other than the few idiots that hate him, no one is bashing him.

Exactly, that's the same point I made earlier. I put Duda in the category of needing to impress or at least not implode.

He's Adam Dunn without the power or OBP.

Does it concern anyone else that TC has said he's the only one who actually has a job?

Good strategy by Duda - he's getting his strikeouts out of the way in spring training.
