January 1, 2008 When he came up to bat in the first round of the 2007 playoffs vs Staten Island Yanks at SI, the fans would sing "The Camptown Ladies" and chant his name Duuuuuuuudaaaaaaaa duuuuuuuuudaaaaaa.
January 21, 2011 I like this kid's swing; I think he has a bright future.
February 21, 2011 Had season tickets to the Buffalo Bisons, and from the moment he was called up from AA he was their best hitter in the middle of the lineup. The ball had a different sound coming off his bat. A big kid with fast hands, I hope he continues to develop.
March 3, 2012 Duda seemed to be concentrating more on becoming a hitter as opposed to a slugger in the Adam Dunn/Mark Reynolds vein. That's why he didn't really turn on the home run power in the first half of the 2011 season.
I like Duda's work ethic and his approach toward hitting. I also liked that .292 average produced in '11. Here's hoping he continues with the consistency!
March 18, 2012 Asked about musicians playing or people singing "Camptown Races" in his presence, Lucas Duda replied, "I've heard it for so long, it doesn't even matter. It stopped being funny like the 300th time I heard it."
August 23, 2012 One of, if not the, worst fielding outfielders I've ever seen.
