Care to elaborate?
Your argument seems to be, Burrell didn't do well last year and didn't come around, so you shouldn't trust Huff. That doesn't fly.
I was thinking the same thing... that arguement didn't make any sense for me either. Burrell and Huff are two completely different hitters.
I mean that the other guys in Tampa's lineup are starting to wake up and hit. There's no injury to blame. Can't blame the lineup either. That leaves his lack of merit as a hitter.
Two weeks is a slump. Two months is a red flag. Especially for a young and relatively unproven hitter. This isn't Bagwell or Helton we're talking about here. The pitchers have adjusted to Huff, and it isn't clear whether, let alone when, he'll adjust to have the results he did last year.
