The Indians send David Huff down to Columbus

Jun 21, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

This isn’t the most Earth-shattering news — the dude was 2-9 with a 6.04 ERA in 13 starts, and that doesn’t fly with even a terrible team like Cleveland — but it is notable for two reasons.

(1) I will no longer be able to use my old warhourse “minute and a Huff” joke in “And That Happened.”  Probably for the best, though. I have to be careful not to get too Bermany with this stuff; and

(2) Now that Huff will be pitching in my hometown, I get to see if he has the stones to continue to warm up to Johnny Cash’s “God’s gonna cut you down” like he does in Cleveland.  It’s ballsy enough to basically claim to be God when you’re in the majors, but doing so in Columbus, Ohio would be epic in its audaciousness.

Man, I hope he does it.

    Never associate that old has-been Berman with a classic Groucho line.

    You’re skipping the extra level of irony – Huff using that song and then getting nailed in the head with a line drive.
    Sure, it’s a macabre sense of irony, but everything about the Indians (save Santana … for now) has a sense of macabre, doesn’t it?

    Sure you can use “a minute and Huff”. Aubrey is still playing and he’s having a very nice season.
