THOMAS BOSWELL – Dukes Needs to Kiss the Antics Goodbye – The Post
Bos notes that Elijah Dukes can be a star, but needs to grow up and cut out the nonsense and control his temper. That is true, but left unsaid is that Dukes has seven children by several different mothers. He needs to provide for them and baseball is the best way for him to do that, but does he realize it or even care?
Dukes is an extraordinary talent, but a deeply flawed man. He needs to use the former to overcome the latter.
Don’t forget, Bos is chatting this afternoon at 3 p.m.
