Keep Huff or trade him?

Postby phr3ak » Sat May 15, 2004 4:26 pm

I´m having trouble keeping Huff in the lineup... The guy is not doing anything. I think he can turn it around but the guy is struggling!
I picked Chad Tracy to have him on 3rd. base and bench Huff ´till he got hot (still waiting for that). but Tracy is not the guy you want in fantasy although they say he might be a Brandon Webb type rookie player for Arizona.
I also have trouble with benching people. Vlad Guerrero, Pat Burrell and Jermaine Dye are my untochables OF so I use as utility guys: Jaque Jones and Jody Gerut most of the time (and sometimes add Huff in the mix to see If i get lucky), but also have Frank Catalanotto which can hit for average and has a little power.
I was thinking of droping Tracy and leaving Catalonatto as a platoon player just for righthanded hitters or for when someone gets in a slump. Or should I trade Huff for some valuable pitcher or I dont know what for.
Help on this one.

i'd give him a few more weeks unless you can get a good deal for him.

huff is definitely a guy to buy low right now. if you trade him now you won't get anywhere near what you should get for this guy. i say hold on to him. kind of similar to the situation that i'm dealing with in barry bonds. just sit tight and wait for him to come around. being on a bad team doesn't help things much, but this kid is one of the best young hitters in the league. i wouldn't fret too much.

i would agree. this guy is worth keeping on your bench since you can afford it. He will turn it around and you aren't going to get what he is worth right now anyway.
