i played like poop

Shelley Duncan boiled down his first start of the season to one word. "Poop," Duncan said as he fiddled with the tab of a soda can in front of his clubhouse stall after yesterday's 6-3 loss to the Rays. He finished 1-for-4, grounded out with two runners on base to end the eighth and committed a throwing error that led to two unearned runs. "I feel like I have some work to do," Duncan said. "I felt like poop a little bit. Hopefully, I can put the work in the cage and next time around I can be sharp."

As for his choice of words, Duncan said, "It just means you feel you can do a lot better, you feel you can feel a lot better. You don't feel like your swing at everything was 100 percent. That was me [yesterday]. Poop." You must give him credit for being honest. With the ground out to end the 8th, and the error in the second, fans that watched the game must agree they thought he played like "poop" too.
