This guy wouldn't have helped the Twins

14 posts in this topic

The Tigers on Monday acquired left-handed hitting Aubrey Huff from the Baltimore Orioles for minor-league pitcher Brett Jacobson.

Huff was hitting .253 with 13 home runs and 72 RBI for the Orioles this year while splitting time at first base and designated hitter. However, as recently as last year, he played third base -- and has started more at third than at any other defensive position -- so he might be able to help out at that position whenever Brandon Inge needs a game off.

Huff, 32, is coming off one of his best year as a hitter. In 2008, he hit .304 for Baltimore with 32 home runs and 108 RBI. He can be a free agent at the end of this season, however.

I think 32 is about 2 years younger than the AVERAGE Tiger. Fact of the matter is, the Tigers aren't that great of a ball team, they are an average team in a bad division

can he pitch? If not, he wouldn't be of any value.

Huff is making $8 Million a year and only batting .253 with 13 homers.

And most of the people around here think Cuddyer is overpaid at $7.6 and he's hitting .270 with 19 homers.

The players at this time of the year are not worth picking up. Teams put overpaid, underproducing players to dump contracts. The twins need to sign free agents, no minor leaguers to give up and thats what the twins never want to do is give up prospects.

Thats a pretty good rf for 2 mil. He's probably pretty close to the numbers/salary around mlb.

And we would have given them which pitcher in return? We have nothing but pukers in A, AA, AAA, and Big boy ball.

No trade bait = no trade......

The Huff is overpaid by 7 million going by your standards.

I don't expect any decent trades to happen for 2 reasons.

1. We don't have anything to offer.

2. We aren't able to pay the salary of someone who could actually help us.

Remember that Mauer is going to need a new deal that isn't going to be cheap. Does anyone see this club signing Mauer and trading for and taking on the salary of a solid player who can help us now and in the long run?

I'd prefer we take care of Mauer first and then look at what we can get in free agency. But I think everyone in the organization knows that Mauer has to be the priority.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
