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.

OMG this dude would be a stellar pick up, even better than beltre at the plate

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

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
