i just traded my Mark Teixera for Roy Oswalt because my hitting is REALLY stacked, and i wanted to get rid of jermaine dye while he's hot for someone who's really slumping. What i'm wondering is...what is all your opinions on Aubery Huff for the remainder of the season and would you trade Jermaine Dye for him? because i talked to the owner of Huff and they said they would definitally do the trade if i was up for it

I don't think his struggles are health related at all, so in that respect I think he can still rebound. He has had better second halves than first halves, but he has never really been this bad for this long before.

Who knows if he can turn it around. I'm hoping he does get traded to a contender and something clicks since it doesn't appear that the All-Star break is going to magically cure his ills.

Right now I think it is probably just mental. It's only J Dye and there are likely to be some second half OF options that appear yet this year. Getting a multi position back-up who supposedly is a 30 HR .300 hitter seems like a good risk.

I would do that trade. Though I have doubts about whether Audrey will regain her form, I have more doubts about how much longer Dye can stay healthy or keep hitting.

huff has had a 10 homer month before. he can come around but i dont know what is causing his slump so i dont know what/when it will be fixed. i am hoping he gets traded and that snaps him out of the malaise.

I dont expect him to hit above .275 for the season

Aubrey Huff is really the most feminin of the Major leaguers :-D


I seriously doubt that he'll rebound, nevertheless, the deal is good cuz Dye will cool down.

i think he'll turn it around somewhat at least. a 2nd half like last year though? i dunno... i'd hope so since i just traded for him in 2 of my leagues :-o

I think Huff is one week away from the WW in a lot of leagues.
