    Half the league was probably made up of his kids.

    The fact that Dukes wasn't an opening day starter should be enough to get Acta canned.

    Oh, Elijah Dukes. I thought we were talking about Lastings Milledge. I always get those two confused.

    Know why he was late? Because he was probably somewhere bitching at an umpire.

    If he were only as cool as Kobe, he could have choppered in and out of the Little League deal. [/crossthreading]

    Or making a friendly phone call to the mother of his children.

    Sorry, I have no sympathy. Even when he decided to do a good thing, he did it the wrong way. And he has done plenty to earn the distrust of the franchise.

    Maybe it was bad PR for the team to handle this so harshly. Maybe they are only angry that he didn't do it through the team because they want to benefit from the good PR when he does such things. But how can the team give him even an inch of leeway until he does a lot more to prove he can stop behaving like a jackass?

    I admit some bias due to my own feelings regarding the allegations against Dukes in the past. Somebody correct me if I am remembering this incorrectly. When he threatened his wife, didn't he also threaten to kill their children? Sorry, even if you don't mean it, I don't understand how any parent could ever say he would kill his own children.
