According to Rotoworld citing Ken Rosenthal, Elijah Dukes may be on the trade block.
If we could get Dukes, I think it would be a massive coup.
The Devil Rays are down on Dukes for all his domestic issues, and attitude issues in the minors. But the guy is a stud outfielder, and we seem to be collecting misfits (Thomas, Bradley, et al... imagine if we somehow acquired Millege and Dukes? That'd be a weird OF... LF Dukes, CF Milledge, RF Bradley? Wow...)
The Nationals are persuing Dukes, but the problem is... they have nothing to give up!
The Devil Rays want a Second Baseman, and of course need pitching. Would we be able to get Dukes for Kevin Melillo (.278/.373/.476/.849 in AAA), Jason Windsor and Shane Komine?
What does AN think?
