I expect him to start spelling Inge at 3B and hitting in the DH spot on other days. Guillen to LF must be coming soon.

A little not so fun fact from Wikki...

His father, Aubrey II, was killed as an innocent bystander in a workplace domestic dispute when Aubrey was 6 years old , Aubrey II was shot attempting to take away a gun from an armed man who had just shot his wife

Awesome. I like Aubrey.

I see him listed as 1b/DH. Is he a competent 3b? If so that would be great. I need to go look up his numbers this year...

And what's up with this Jacobson fellow?

He can sing it's just too bad it is country. He has the voice for it though...:happy:

What about Larish? Does this mean the organization is done with him? What does Huff do what Larish couldn't do?

Huff has been awful since the all-star break. He's a streak hitter though so you never know when he'll start hitting. I imagine he'll replace Raburn on the roster as a dh/ back-up 3B. This move probably also means that Guillen is headed to LF.

Not bad but I'd rather they simply gave ABs to Larish.

Huff will be a FA after 2009, so Larish is still in the mix for next year. Meanwhile, for this year, we get an experienced, LH, bat.

Yeah, I don't even like country. I like when unexpected people can sing well, regardless of the format.

Have a track record of consistently hitting at the major league level...

He's got almost as many career games in RF. Maybe Maggs is finally a goner?
