Time to cut ties with Aubrey Huff?

Postby Spokes » Wed May 05, 2004 4:12 am

I don't want to be accused of having a quick trigger finger, but he is still batting below .200 and it is May. I need some pitching. Should I use Huff as trade bait?

Forget trading him, as you'll get robbed on value in all likelihood. I think you've got to ride it out for the rest of May, but if he hasn't shown signs of a revival at that point, just mark him down as the '04 vrsion of Burrell, and take whatever you can get. Seems to me his swing is too pure for this to continue, but he's sure in a nasty funk.

Definitely wait him out. He's near 3b eligibility, too.

Someone dropped him in my 12-team Yahoo league so I used my 7 waiver priority to grab him. I hope he pays off; I've been saving that priority for the right guy.

Oh he will. This has to be a public league, right? :-[

A-Huff for Burnitz?

Postby lifeform » Wed May 05, 2004 10:42 am

I've been thinking a lot about A-Huff myself. He's off to a dreadfully slow start, which makes me wonder if he's not ripe for the picking.

I have Jeromy Burnitz who's off to a hot start, and I'm thinking of offering him to the A-Huff owner in my 12-team Yahoo league.

I think it could be a classic sell high, buy low situation.

Can anyone give my an opinion on this?

the other manager would have to be dumb, but might as well try
