They will both probably be fairly equal in their batting averages. Damon is a good bet if you need steals; he could steal 40-50 bases. Huff would be a better bet if you are looking for power; he has the potential to hit 30 HR, 100 RBI.

I like Damon, he's going to steal a lot more bases and score a lot more runs. No way Huff is going to drive in 100 playing for TB. But he is good for around 30 HR and a 300 average.

Huff could drive in 100 if Crawford and Baldelli keep up the high Avg. I think Huff will be good for about 90 RBI this year.

How these 2 guys can even be mentioned in the same sentence is beyond me. Damon hits in front of Nomar and Manny Ramirez. He steals tons of bases. He hits for good average. He has some pop. The bottom of Boston's lineup isn't too bad either so he should be good for about 75 RBI(as a leadoff guy.) Finally, if you are in a position where you are considering huff in the outfield then its time to give concede first place to someone else in your league. The only way Huff would have been of any use would have been if he had qualified at third base. As a first baseman or outfielder he is simply not worth a roster spot.

I'm with cwhitty. Damon, and it's not even close. 100 runs is a cinch, given Boston's lineup.

However, in the majority of leagues with 4x4 or 5x5 rules, runs don't count for anything. Both Huff and Damon should hit for about the same average. Damon will steal 30-40 bases, but Huff has more power, bats cleanup and will hit more homers and RBIs. So, the answer as to which one you need depends on whether you need steals or power. In a 4x4 league, Huff is obviously a better player; in a 5x5 league, Damon has a slight edge.

err...4x4 sure. 5x5 standard is Runs, HR, RBI, SB and AVG.


Here are the numbers from '02. Granted, Huff is young and may improve on these numbers, but still, we're really not in the same ballpark...

(I note that Damon did have over 600 ABs to Huffs' ~450 ABs, which means that if Huff gets more ABs in, he should get to 30 HR and maybe like 90 RBIs. Still...) Also note that a healthy Manny should improve some of Damon's numbers.

Damon: 118 Runs, 14 HR, 63 RBI, 31 SB, .285 avg.

Huff: 67 Runs, 23 HR, 59 RBI, 4 SB, .313 Avg.
