I have him benched in a 14 teamer. I can afford to let him sit there for a while and hope he can turn it around. :-?

I wouldn't cut bait. Huff is unlucky right now. Once his luck returns to neutral and his power stroke comes back, he'll have a lot of value especially considering his position eligibility.

A .326/.371/.457 guy who plays in a hitters park is on your wire? hmmm... :-? Do we need to pull up the whole Green/Drew debate again?


Anyway, re Huff, I have him stashed in my 12 team league. You will not find many guys who have the potential to hit 25 more HRs this season at a .300 clip. Probably not going to happen, but certainly .280 and 20 would be reasonable.

Plus there is a strong possibility he will get traded, which would make his value skyrocket.

Minors: .312 (1290 AB)

2003: .311 (636)
2004: .297 (600)
2005: .261 (575)

If he heats up, he can certainly hit .300.

Geez. Guess I didn't realize I was such a Huff supporter. Maybe I should buy low on him...

you are correct. people are also forgetting that he tore up ST. Not that that should carry a ton of weight, but just to note that better days are very likely ahead, esp if (when IMO) he gets dealt.

I have him benched in a 16 Team (you read that right), I start Sexson over him so not much of an improvement. At this point I honestly don't see him turning it around. I would drop him but this is a dynasty cafe league so I basically cannot drop a talent like that with what we have on waivers. In a one year I think I would drop him for a good amount of players that are on WW now.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I have him in 2 leagues. I plan on going down with the ship since there is no one on the free agent block.

I think Huff needs a new start somewhere else to sort of "reset" his brain. Huff on the Yankees is appealinfg from a fantasy standpoint, although as a Red Sox fan I don't know if I want to see that. And I don't know if NY is the palce for anyone to get their head staraight, which does not bode well for Randy Johnson.

Stick with Huff on the bench for now. Give him 4-5 weeks to find his swing or get traded. If it doesn't happen after that, drop him.
