The Duda Abides

Well I am 3 for 3 over the last 3 days putting up a post.  So maybe I will find a little time to dabble on my blog.  I also plan on holding a CONTEST in the next few weeks so stay tuned.  Trying to figure out what to give away as a prize(s) and what kind of contest to do.  If you have any ideas drop me a comment below.

Here we are just a little over a month to the end of the season.  Lets take a look back at a trade that actually ended up benefiting the Mets.  The trade I am talking about is shipping Ike Davis off to Pittsburgh and making Lucas Duda the starting first baseman and getting rid of the uncertainty while they split time trying to figure out who would start.

Well Lucas Duda is actually producing  pretty nicely at the plate and has been on a tear as of late.  As of yesterday he leads the league in home runs since the all-star break and he is averaging a home run every 17.7 at bats which is top 5 in the league as of yesterday.  At least that is some positive news for the Mets.  The only thing that can irk me about Duda at times is that he is too patient at the plate at times.  I guess all that off season training this past winter up in Michigan with Mike Barwis is paying off for him.  Mike Barwis is an alum of WVU and ex strength and conditioning coach at WVU and currently has his own show American Muscle on Discovery channel which I have yet to catch.  While here at WVU they produced some pretty quick and potent teams.

Well here is a 2012 Triple Threads Auto Relic of Lucas Duda /50 that I picked up about year or so ago for pretty cheap.  Sorry for the glare I guess this is another one that I need to retake a picture of when time allows.
