Every time I see him at a distance, I think McGwire. Not in skill, but in physique.

Hey, I thought that about him in 2004, particularly a young McGwire.

Duncan reminds me of the backup center on my high school basketball team. This guy was 6'7" and couldn't dunk. But if you're 6'7", can run the 50 in under 8 seconds and can bench press more than 100 pounds, they can find a use for you.

True, in the middle or later innings, we're seeing some AAA and AAAA guys, but we're seeing major leaguers out there. It's not accurate to say that our batters are doing well against minor-league pitchers, or that our pitchers are doing well against minor-league batters.


My last comment was tongue-in-cheek.
