"I really want to tell the fans of DC, Jim Bowden and Mike Rizzo thanks a lot for helping me out in many ways. I really grew up a lot because of those two guys. I also want to give a hug to Harolyn Cardozo and Willie Harris for the time that I needed people the most. A special thanks to them."
Thank you, Elijah Dukes. I don't think the Nats gave you the chance on the field that you deserved. -a friend of Dukes
