El Guapo wrote:I drank the Huff Kool-Ade and traded for him earlier this year based in part on many of the second half stat claims I read here at the Cafe. While his second half stats have historically improved after April/May, it's nearly July and we still haven't seen much. I'm starting to wonder if I should move him while there is still a second half left in the year to claim to the other managers "he'll have a hot second half." Rumors that he might be traded are keeping my hopes alive more than his second half promise, which at this point, seems a little underwhelming.


Yeah, I learned real quick around here to gauge whose opinions I feel I can actually rely on. I see ten guys in a row spout, "Huff's a second half MONSTER! He's just waiting to break out!!!" yet it's apparent they probably haven't seen a single at bat from the guy this season. When I saw him, he looked like a friggin rookie at the plate, overmatched, and not fully swinging at pitches due to his lack of contact. That said, it's possible he turns around and has a second half comparable to his last two years; but keep in mind, heading into the last two breaks, he was coming off very good months. Anybody who's banking on a huge second half from this guy and trading a lot to go out and get him should re-evaluabe their stance. I see it far too often around here. Guys simply following a trend that pops up on the board, and it ends up burning them; and I haven't been here that long. It's a result of opinions being a lot like a-holes; everybody has one, and they all stink... well, except my opinion that is. :-b

8-o :-? what size league are you in that huff, sizemore, and hafner are on the free agent list??????



but anyways about huff,,, i think he is a solid buy low player for the next couple of months... even though he has been close to terrible for 3 months now,,, i just think he has to heat up a little bit down the stretch,,,, who knows maybe a trade to a different team is just what Mr. Huff needs to get it going..... but to get huff for dye,,, i would easily take huff and pray he turns things around

Yeah, something ain't right there. If the guys you mentioned like Hafner, Sizemore, and Huff are ont he WW in a 12 team league, I shudder to think who's actually on guys' rosters. None of the above mentioned should be on the WW in 10 team leagues, some of them not even in 8 teamers.
