Huff for under 8 a year....


 
Free agent Aubrey Huff has reportedly lowered his asking price from $36 million for four years to $23 million for three.
Huff is the best hitter left on the board, but there hasn't been much interest in him. The Orioles would consider him on a shorter deal. The Pirates want a left-handed power hitter, but they'd rather trade for someone younger. A return to Houston hasn't been ruled out.

We could have not signed feliz and klesko, and had huff for the same price..... The hell

There has been little if any talk about Huff coming to the Giants all off season which leads me to believe that either the Giants see something in him that they don't like or he never really wanted to come here.

Oh well, we get to see another year of Peter Happy waiving at balls outside of the strikezone. That's got to be worth something right?

Just sayin'

Nobody has really showed interest in Huff throughout baseball which surprises me. His defense is pretty poor at all the positions he plays but you would think an AL team would love his bat in the DH slot.

I would much perfer Frandsen 3B/Huff 1B to the Feliz/Aurilia/Klesko three-headed monster.

But it seems like I end up saying something like that every year. Sabean is never content to wait out the market.

And not that many teams have had interest in Hillenbrand either.
