he's on the can't cut list in Yahoo :~(

He's not in my league. I think they just took him off recently.

he is droppable in yahoo as of today I think. This really sucks because it could have been avoided. It's not even his original injury that this is for...it is for when he came back too early and got hurt again...

The Yankees don't need anyone else. Melky can handle LF, and between Bernie and Thompson, RF will be fine until September. A trade would be a bad idea.

Hughes to get Aubrey Huff?

:-b

If that's what Tampa is thinking, they need to drop the crackpipe. The Yankees could be ok with Bernie/Thompson platooning in right field. A minor trade to acquire some depth wouldn't hurt though. If they can give up next to nothing to pick up a decent player to fill in RF for some games, that'd be great.

Otherwise, they should dedicate their focus to pitching, if anything. They still have an awesome offensive team. Getting a replacement RF/LF is not what this team needs.

For Huff?

Let me say that again...

For Huff?

.182 Huff?

2 homeruns and .280 slugging Huff?

Yearly depreciation for 3 years Huff?

There is no way Aubery Huff nets Hughes who is actually a legitimate Yankee pitching prospect with ace-capability. The kid has a golden arm, and for an organization trying to rebuild on the farm, there is zero chance they give up their best prospect for a nobody. I would expect them to trade for a salary dump well before giving up Hughes for Huff.

I dunno if they really want Bernie Williams in right, given his lack of arm strength. I mean, that would be one pathetic defensive OF.

'Course, I don't know if Huff would be that much better....

They've also got Bubba Crosby. With him, they have a pretty damn good defensive OF with excellent range. Its a much, much bette defensive OF than they started the season with.

not saying that huff is worth hughes, but ever since the rays got kazmir all they try and do is fleece teams. so if the yanks were to ask for huff i would bet money that the rays would ask for hughes or j brent cox+a hitter. just my .02...

on a seperate note, any new news on sheff. are him or matsui going to return in time to make an impact?
