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'm back. Sorta.

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.

Interestingly enough, Burrell and Huff played college ball together at Miami and were both highly touted hitting prospects. Maybe every Hurricane suffers a crap season?

Makes as much sense as anything.

Huff will have good years down the road. But, this year won't be one of them.

If he is like Burrell, he'll be an incredible steal for a lot of people next year.

Do you really think Huff will stink it up all year long???

He's bound to produce better eventually isn't he? It's not like he's been dropped in the order or anything...at least not yet.

He probably won't be this bad. But, he has to improve significantly just to be mediocre.

In a good lineup he'd be batting 8th.

I disagree look at last week

H/AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB AVG
7/24 3 7 0 1 0 2 1 .292

He is coming out of his slump.

Take a step further and look at the last 30 days.

24/99 11 R, 3 HR, 13 RBI, 1 SB, .242


While not amazing stats they sure do look better than his season long stats.

3 HR's in 30 days isn't too impressive. His .242 average is better than I thought though, still not good by any means.
