I see that the Washington Nationals suddenly, and without any real notice, released Elijah Dukes today. Should the Cubs give him a shot? He's a young player that was considered to have a lot of talent but has had a few off the field run ins. But maybe this is the splash of cold water in the face that he needs to put the talent back together. If the hitting coach is the genius that he is made out to be, with Dukes inherent talent, this could be a true difference maker... or it could be the second coming of Milton Bradley

Why? The Cubs already have a much better group of outfielders (72 votes)
Why not? Dukes would be an upgrade and if he doesn't work, we can just release him (80 votes)
