Mr. Ding Dong

Postby bigh0rt » Sun Apr 13, 2008 11:08 pm

Aubrey Huff (3B/1B), age 31, is currently batting 5th in the Baltimore lineup, with 2 HR, 11 RBI, and 8 R, all while batting .244. As a .284 career hitter, it's possible the Ding Donger could sneak his way ahead or behind Markakis in the Oriole lineup, and recapture fantasy relevance...

Any chance Huff gets a bump to the 4-hole over Kevin Millar? The 2-hole over Mora?
Any chance we see him recapture even his '05 self of 20+/90+/70+?

Huff has always been a favorite player of mine. Seemed poised for stardom and then just kind of fell apart.

Certainly worth keeping on the radar. With that less-than-stellar Baltimore lineup, he could find himself in a nice position in the order.

Just pick him up in late July and ride his annual August streak. Then drop him and watch some sucker pick him up for September. Your friends will be in awe of your psychic abilities.

Why is there no talk of the guy hitting behind him (Luke Scott)? I think he has more fantasy relevance than Aubrey Huff and should definitely be moved up from the 6 hole.

Whether it's Huff or Scott, someone needs to boot Millar from the 4 hole... why is he there?
