Duncan Not Allowed in On-field Dog Pile

Posted by Ross

As the St. Louis Cardinals celebrated their first World Seriels victory in more than two decades in front of tens of thousands of delirious, screaming fans, one player was notably absent from the traditional on-field dog pile:

Right fielder Chris Duncan.

Duncan, who wouldn't have been able to crack the lineup at first base, his primary position, because of incumbent superstar Albert Pujols, had to learn right field on the fly this season, and it's been an adventure from beginning to end, including two gigantic miscues in last night's World Series-clinching fifth game.

Fresh from the dog pile, mouth still tasting of Yadier Molina's jock strap, slick-fielding centerfielder Jim Edmonds commented on Duncan's exclusion: "Sure we held on to win despite his two bone-headed plays. But what if we had been the Cubs, what then? Hell, I'd probably be dead right now."

Duncan himself was unavailable for comment, and there were uncomfirmed reports his father, Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan, had sent him to his room and took away his Play Station priviledges for two weeks.
