    Duda isn't worth jack.

    He's worth something. We could have had one of the Padres best relievers for Daniel Murphy last summer.

    Duda has value to an American League team at the DH spot if he grows into his power and hits.

    Otherwise he really has no value because he is defense is god awful.

    Dud is nowhere near DM.

    Which he hasn't, and @ 27 he isn't going to.

    He's useless.

    This is a make or break year for Duda but he has certainly has 20+ home run power and his defense will improve moving from RF to LF.

    He's trash. It won't help his defense, his defense will be as bad but at a different position.

    If we'd had anything like a farm system 3-4 years ago, he'd never made it up here.

    Ironically what Sandy is working on doing but yes Duda doesn't belong anywhere defensively besides 1st base.

    Left field is easier to play than RF at Citi.

    His defense should improve not vastly but at least measurably.

    I told all you guys last year that Duda was gonna flop. He's a first baseman playing in the outfield. He can play first or DH on some team.

    How is it going to improve? is he going to run faster? throw better? I don't think so.

    No LF doesn't require the range it takes to play RF in Citi.

    Less ground to cover equals better defense to some extent.

    Easier to hide a LF's defensive problem than it is a RF.

    I think what he is trying to say is because of Citis dimensions, RF is easier to play then LF.

    I know thaT, BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO IMPROVE HIS DEFENSE, HE'S JUST BEING ASKED TO A LESS STAXING POSITION, HE'L BE EQAULLY AS BAD, BUT IN AN EASIER SPOT, THAT;S NOT IMPROVING HIS DEFENSE.

    Yes it will because he should be able to get balls easier covering less ground in the OF..

    It won't be an outstanding difference but there will be improvement.

    Left field is the most difficult position to play in the outfield because the ball hooks. Duda has experience playing left field in the minors. I don't see any improvement. Dump him now for a reliever.
