Huff out of the lineup = day of rest or trade?

He's been swinging a hot bat lately, and he isn't a guy who sits very often.
Anyone have any wild rumors or speculation? I keep hearing both Chicago teams as possible destinations. I also keep hearing that Rays are asking way too much for their players.

Nothing new about Huff that I have heard. Lots of guys are getting days off today.


As to the DRays asking too much, that is nothing new. They sort of got spoiled when they turned V. Zambrano into Kazmir.

I am very pissed off that I didn't see this before the game!!!

BTW he gets rest occasionally that is my thinking of why he is sitting...

I think the main reason he was sitting is because he's 4-42 lifetime against Wakefield...

Huff for McCarthy and Marte is a very reasonable offer. McCarthy only projects as a #3 starter.

I don't think this is just a night off, usually even if a guy is resting, he is still listed on the bench, he is not listed tonight. The only time this happens is if the player is no longer on that team or on the DL. I didn't think he was hurt, so I believe he might be packing.

he is not listed on the bench on CBS Sportsline, I guess it was their error.

Chuck Lamar is exactly the kind of douchebag that you hate to have in your fantasy league.

And right now it is to the Cubs' detriment, which chaps my arse even more.
