I assume Huff's good enough for me to use my #3 WW Priority on him in my NL-only league?

Yeah that doesn't seem like a lot but Huff was pretty bad the first half.

not sure how i feel about this as a Huff owner.

the Astro's cant score, but it is a hitters park so maybe it'll give his numbers a boost

also, is it good/bad for batters to switch leagues?

Question: do hitters typically perform better or worse when switching leagues?

just asking becasue this sounds good on paper, but i dont want him going in a huge slump because he's facing a slew of new pitchers

Yes!!!!!!!!!!! I just added him in hopes of him going to LAA or DET. HOU is just fine by me. Huff has been great in interleague games so hopefully that means that he'll enjoy hitting in the NL.

Is Minute Maid good for left handed hitters??

I'm not sure if this is a good thing for Huff. Houston's lineup is pretty bad. What spot does everyone think he will hit in?

NL-only league, so he goes onto waivers when he gets added to our eligible players list.

I'd love to grab him...I'd then have some extra chips to trade!!

So what's the fantasy impact on this deal, for Houston and Tampa?? Huff's been raking lately, will he continue to do so?
