Default El Duque!

Amazing. Just when you think he's through, he comes through with something like this. You have to tip your hat to this guy.

That was a great performance by El Duque, who also proved to be a pest at the plate. One of his at-bats against Vargas was a 14-pitch battle. Duque kept fouling off pitch after pitch, much to the consternation of Vargas and the crowd. Good show.

If he can stay healthy, the Mets have a good shot at coming out of the NL.

I never thought he was capable of throwing a complete game again (age, works slow, throws a lot of pitches), great to see the highlights last night

I thought he did much better than most people thought last year.

His performances in the playoffs were simply awesome.

I've always liked him. Good to see that he's still capable of doing good things.

Well, to be fair, one was awesome, one was just surreal.

I wish the Mets didn't trade for him so I could still hold on to the pipe dream of getting him for middle relief...

I was short a pitcher in my fantasy league and was going to pick him up to get me by for the day and didn't
