Take a stand on Dukes

Yahoo! Sports

Jeff Passan, as always, is much more interesting on the Elijah Dukes case than the headline suggests. There’s no reporter doing a better job of getting at the game, I don’t think.

As for Dukes, who is playing in the big leagues now because they wouldn’t have him back in Triple-A, it is a judgment call when to release him for his offenses. But it can’t be the right message to let him play after he sent those message to his estranged wife.
