Yeah it's tough because if you trade him now while his value is low you don't get much back, and then if he ends up hitting 25 HR's it makes you look bad. Tough situation.
Thing is though, with interleague play now right at the start of the season, he can be used as a DH a lot of the times. So that helps.
My wife thinks I should take the garbage out.
She doesn't think I'm bringing something awesome back with me.
Duda is garbage. Trade him, keep him ... whatever. He will be a bouncer in two years.
"I think we should trade Duda"
Would you prefer to get back a Box of new balls or used bats because that is about what most teams would offer right now.
What about a new hot dog vendor?
That was the running joke about Butch Huskey back in the day. We were going to trade him for a new hot dog vendor and a bag of balls.
Man, this franchise just doesn't bring back a ton of great feelings ...
We could just release him since he's a "misfit" and sign Jay Payton. He didn't go to Stanford, but he is a real outfielder and he would come very cheap on a minor league deal. That he is 40 is of no consequence, because he is an outfileder and Duda isn't. Sheesh.
Duda will hit 25 homers one day.
I remember saying to my Yankee fan friend "You wait dude, Payton is going to be a freaking stud. That guy is ripped! Look at him!"
Duda will hit 25 HR someday, I agree. Of course it will be in a local softball league beer league and it will only be because he keeps hitting it into the creek that no one wants to slog through.
I hope you're right.
Cleveland needs a 1B/DH, just saying >>>
why? duda would be a part time/backup for them. maybe get a C MiL back though.
