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

    • Good for you, lhprop!  I hope you find the rightful owner.  If not you can make use if it with peace of mind knowing you tried!
    • Ha ha. I think my workin it, maybe somewhat your walking it.
    • The sad part of the whole thing, is if they would have somehow found a way to get one in OT to win Game 5, I think they finally got to Allen a bit. The forward D zone coverage was terrible in the game and for much of the series. Those goals that start out with a player against the boards skating in front of the net are a sign of a forward breakdown. The winning goal was on Zucker. It happens. I know we  were pressing a bit, but that killed us.   Now, for the offseason thread! :-) I would be willing to bet Haula isn't back. Ek, I think is going to be forced into the lineup and play a significant role next season. I would actually like to see Hanzal signed. I was a fan of the trade at the time and still am. I think as a 4th line guy he would be a nice addition. Perhaps Fletch can convince Pominville to waive his no trade clause to free him up for the expansion draft. I certainly don't expect Vegas to take him, and he wouldn't want to go there, but this would allow the team to protect one other player. We would have to eat some salary if we are able to ink a deal with another team, but I think that is doable. Russo actually was saying the same kind of thing in a recent interview.
    • I have a water jet pump and I have only needed to rely on it once when the power went out briefly. As floyd said it uses water to move water but it has its limitations. If you need it when the power goes out during a significant rain event its just going to make things worse.   I have a 1/2hp pump in my sump basin with a float on it. The waterjet also has a float on it set just higher than the main pumps float. in the event that the  1/2hp main pump burns out etc the water would raise high enough to hit the waterjet float and turn it on.   the battery back ups work great also but you need to maintain the batteries to make sure they are good to go when you need them and they are fully charged.   pros and cons to each but if possible I would opt to install both if you can.
    • Ihprop! Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.  Just to get a better idea. Did you find it in a parking area or in the field? Mite help who ever lost it remember?
    • See I always use the poppin frogs for walking. I usually dont use the regular frog unless I am throwing it in really thick cover. Over the top of submerged weeds, timber, and docks I always use the poppin frog. For Spros, I actually think the poppin frog walks better than the regular one. 
    • I found some hunting gear yesterday and I figured I'd grab it and try to find the rightful owner before someone else claimed it for themselves. If you or anyone you know lost some hunting gear on public land in Waseca County over the past weekend, let me know.  If you can identify it, I will get it back to you.
    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
