huff clears waivers

18 posts in this topic

Fri, Aug 15 The Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly and Jeff Zrebiec report Baltimore Orioles 1B Aubrey Huff has cleared waivers and can be traded to any team.

Here is the 3B we/twins need. Any speculation on what it would take to get him. We are doin' pretty good..... so maybe we shouldnt mess with what works, but I sure would like some power at the other corner.

If you believe what the Star Tribune is saying the Twins are willing to spend some money but they are not willing to trade any of our starting pitchers. According to the article they claimed Ibanez and Washburn from the Mariners and were willing to pay their salaries but the M's wanted starting pitching in return.

So i think it all depends on what the trade looks like more then the money right now. They are something like $20 million under what they spent last season so they have some room to move.

This is just me being hopeful.

I still give it a 5% chance at happening and maybe that high of a percentage is still me being to hopeful.

Yeah, it depends on what the O's want in return. The Twins could have had Beltre if they had been willing to part with Baker or Slowey.

I think they made the right call not trading either of those guys.

OK. Forget about beltre. He sucked/sucks. But Huff is a rock solid stud and hes pretty consistant avg/hr/rbi/runs. I dont know if we should trade for him. but if we could get him and sign him he might put us over that first round hump. WE have to figure out a way to part with cuddyer and that might free us up fiscally.

Baltimore likes Boof, maybe Boof and a minor leaguer...Alejandro Macardo, Macri, Duessing??? But Boof would have to clear waivers also.

Just to clear up things for the lamens(me). The origonal post states that Huff is first base eligable but he is also comfortable at third.

What makes Huff a rock-solid stud all of the sudden? The guy hasn't had more than 90 RBI's since 2005, and he's only had more than 100 RBI's twice ('03 and '04)...

I know he's having a great season, but could we count on him to continue it?

Hitting/infield help is not our problem now. If we're gonna spend some money, it's got to be on the bullpen.

Huff bats lefty. We surely don't need another one of those. He is going to make $8 million next year. There is a reason he cleared waivers. I like the idea though of going after a power hitting 3Bman though

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
