He's starting to look a little better, but he still worries me... :-o

Any predictions for him? Who do you think will be better the rest of the year...Huff or Melvin Mora?

Huff will be fine by the end of the season he'll be 300 30 100. Don't worry just a slow start.

Huff should do better, but you never know. 2 monts in the season and he hasn't looked too good-hopefully, he's a 2nd half player.

I need some Greinke help: http://fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/v ... 506#423506

I would much rather have Huff than Mora.

Of course you'd say Huff over Mora but when does it become too long? It is 2 months into the season and it's no longer really a slow start. Just seems like he's playing like crap. Luckily I don't own him but I'd be cautious.

I don't own Huff either...at least not yet!... :-B

I've been offered Huff straight up for Mora...I know this is not the right forum for this so I'm not asking for trade advice...just wanted to get some sentiments about both players out there.

Was Huff's slow start (looooong slow start) due in part to his injury...some sort of bacterial or viral infection...?... :-?

I'm sure Mora will cool off at some point...unless he's gonna be MVP this year... !+) ...but when!? and will he still be a top 5 3B?

Huff is this year's Pat Burrell. This is more than a slow start--it's a guy who's lost his confidence and focus at the plate. Time to sell while people still hold out hope that he'll snap out of it. He won't.

You won't get value equal to where you drafted him, but you're not going to get that if you keep him either.

Ditch the bum.

And there's no way I'd give away any productive major league hitter for him, including Melvin Mora.

Do you have any kind of information to back this up, or is this just speculation?

Everything in fantasy baseball is speculation. But, he has not hit while the other guys have started to hit better.

But, here are Burrell's numbers through May of last year:

AB: 188
Hits: 39
Runs: 28
RBI: 25
BB:30
K: 62
BA: .207
OBP: .317
SLG: .441
OPS: .758

Ugly, to be sure. BUT, they are much better than Huff's numbers this year.

Bottom line: You shouldn't trust young hitters with poor plate discipline. People waited for Richard Hidalgo to get better. It took him two years to figure out how to hit major league pitching once they found the hole in his swing. Huff doesn't know how to work a count yet, and it's showing.
