I've not done this in a while, but welcome to the list Shelley Duncan. I'm wondering if you're high, or are trying to look cool for your teammates - either way, it's not working.
Shelley Duncan gives his thoughts on what happened yesterday - was he involved in the game we were watching?
ESPN: Shelley Duncan watched video of his hard slide in the Yankees' game Wednesday against Tampa Bay and still doesn't think it was a dirty play.
The New York first baseman's slide into second base with his spikes raised sparked a bench-clearing scrum that resulted in two players and two coaches being ejected during the second inning of Wednesday's contest with the Rays.
"I saw it a couple times," Duncan said Thursday. "I still don't understand why they were as upset as they were."
Duncan, who had hinted at the prospect of retaliating for the Rays' Elliot Johnson barreling over New York catcher Francisco Cervelli last Saturday, spiked second baseman Akinori Iwamura in the right thigh and was immediately tossed.
It's safe to assume this flare-up will only lead to more since they still have two more games against each other in spring training, and then play 18 times in the regular season.
