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.
