Not sure if I'd like to see Huff go to Shea...

that's where good hitters go to die.

Im not going to criticize them. They're both right. Tampa Bay=the new Montreal Expos. A bevy of talent wasted, year in, year out.

They're on pace for 110 losses, which would be the most in the history of a franchise that is steeped in losing tradition.

They've matched the worst road start in modern history at 4-28, something done only by the 1982 Twins, 1916 Athletics and 1904 Senators.

Specifics?

They have the highest team ERA in the majors (5.94), have allowed the most runs (393, an average of 6.3 a game) and issued the most walks in the AL (260). Plus, they've made the most errors in the majors (56, after making three Saturday), have the worst fielding percentage (.974) and have allowed the most unearned runs (40, after giving up six more).

Could it get worse?


Yes it could.

They're on the verge, at 20-42, of dropping past Kansas City for the worst record in the majors.


Man its rough being a Royals fan right now, when a team who has played as awful as the D-Rays still have a better record than you. The D-Rays look pretty smart right now in my eyes for leaving Gaithwright and Upton in the minors, absolutely no reason to burn a year of lockdown off for a team who has no chance of competing.

How about one of these teams?

Braves
Dodgers
White Sox
Yankees
Boston

?

Seems to me like the best fit would be the Braves....

Who would the Braves give up in return? Any known possibilities?

As to TB, what did they expect? They spend next to nothing on their pitching which has always been one of the worst in the league. Has their pitching been that much worse than last season? I doubt it but I have not looked it up. Somehow I doubt the loss of Victor Zambrano is that meaningful.
Maybe they'll trade Huff to the Mets for Reyes AND Wright this year ;-D


They'd have better luck trading Fat Toad V.Zam for Kazmir... he's untouchable.............. wait........... that already happened didn't it? :~( :~( :~( :~(
If you found my advice helpful, please help me
