So long and good luck Shelley Duncan

Good guy Shelley Duncan's Yankee career came to an end after he was dropped from the team's 40-man roster and refused a minor league assignment, electing to become a free agent. Duncan made a splash when he was called up by the Yankees in July 2007, hitting three home runs in his first three games. He quickly became a favorite of Yankee fans who loved his energy and enthusiasm on a team that was sorely lacking both.

But he never really got a shot with the Yankees. He was called up several times to fill open roster spots, but never spent much time with the big league team before being sent back down. Duncan was named the International League Most Valuable Player this year after leading the league in home runs and ribbies.

I really hope he gets a chance with another team. Good luck, Shelley.
