You're saying: Dukie, WTF? That's not a baseball name. It's a soccer name, a Pope name, a wussy fashion designer name.
He's 19. Last year, he played 3B for our Gulf Coast League diapers-and-groupies league. He's a switch-hitter from the land of Hugo Chavez. He's tiny, 5'10 and 170. (He only rhymes with Balboni.) But lately, they've had him playing with the big team in Triple A games. Shortstop.
This guy is thinking outside his bun.
Emerson Fucking Landoni. The Smuckers jam of baseball.
With a name like that...
