Funny how a lot of stories lately have focused on the big,bad Elijah Dukes. Many have lauded Dukes skills on the field, but many incidents have led to his ability to produce in the major leauges to be questioned due to many behavioral incidents.
Last year, many questioned the decision of the Devil Rays to allow super-prospect Delmon Young to room with Dukes for the Double A season. Supposedly Dukes was influencing Young in a bad way. However, recent Baseball America articles have attempted to shine a more positive light on Dukes, saying that he doesn't go out, doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, etc. However, Young has had yet another run-in with a minor league umpire. Could someone please start to question his character instead of blaming his actions on Elijah Dukes?
