    Dave Duncan Likely Leaving STL

    "Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan may leave the organization after the year.
    Duncan is upset at the perceived handling of his son, Chris Duncan, by both the Cardinals media and front office. Tony LaRussa's right-hand man since 1983 has also lost influence with the front office, no longer being consulted on decisions and not seeing his philosophy mesh with the minor league philosophy. Duncan insists any decision will come in the off-season and be a professional, not personal decision. Color us skeptical. Duncan is possibly the best pitching coach in the game now that Leo Mazzone has retired. He won't have trouble finding a job. It would be a blow to the Cardinals' future as fantasy owners would no longer be able to pick up Cardinal pitchers and see them morph into world-beaters on a regular basis.

    I would love to see Duncan join the Reds but he would bring a sense of logic to the team that would go directly against some of toothpick's ideas.

    I always thought it was kind of strange for them to "dump" his son the way they did. He's certainly good enough to keep around just to appease his father. Who, by the way, must have some sort of deal with the devil. I'm completely convinced. Because there is just no rational explanation for Dave Duncan to do what he does with his pitching staff. That guy is simply amazing.

    Please let this "association" of Castellini's reach out and snatch Duncan. I could almost live with Dusty if we had Duncan.

    Dave Duncan is to the Cardinals pitching staff what Dick LeBeau is to the Steelers defense. Without them, they are not NEARLY as good...

    Maybe this is why Walt sucks as a GM with the Reds. He needs Duncan to tell him who is good,bad,etc. Show him the money Bob!

    So, following that same logic, Walt might have asked Dick Pole for his input on Zach Stewart's future. Based on the results, whoever gave him the advice to go ahead and let Stewart go (someone had to have said that he's no where near as valuable as an oft-injured, 35-year old, $12M Scott Rolen, who's had 1 good year in his last 4, and let's toss in Josh Roenicke and EE while we're at it), that person, along with Jockety, should be fired for incompetence.

    No it is not the same logic because Dick Pole is not Dave Duncan. The same logic would be that Dave Duncan would understand the value of Roenicke and Stewart and veto the trade.

    You know there's a darn good chance that the Cards could win the WS. I could see them both leaving if that happens. Larussa to retire and Duncan to the Reds! I don't want Larussa, but Duncan would be just fine by me, and we could always pick up his kid at a 5th outfielder to sweeten the deal.

    How old is Duncan?
