after the teams are set, whether someone is undrafted or not isn't the most relevant statistic. Im sure not many drafted dontrelle willis, or prior or pujols, and they all had nice rookie years.

My point being is that just because some owners refuse to believe in it, doesn't mean the player doesn't have worth.

Especially as it pertains to closers. I don't see what is so horrible about it. We know what huff will do. If he has those stats factored into his plan, then who is to say he can't do it -- or more to the point shouldn't do it.

I think the league should be more glad that someone is playing to win.

Incidentally, huff is only that good if someone is actually going to play him at third. but enough of the elague probably won't. certainly not the rolen, arod, chipper, beltre, blalock and perhaps not the aramis, chavez owners either.

If we are talking all parties involved are healthy (a big IF regarding floyd) floyd could put up numbers damn close to huff anyway. Then the guy gets his closer too. Maybe giving up huff was the cheapest way to address saves and keep those stats.

Imbalanced, but not vetoable.
