Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is reporting that the Yankees have traded lefty David Huff to the Giants for cash considerations. The Yankees had acquired Huff by claiming him off waivers from the Indians in late May last season.

In 34 2/3 innings split between two spot starts and nine relief appearances, Huff posted a 5.50 ERA. He has always been prone to giving up home runs, so a move to the spacious confines of AT&T Park might be beneficial for the 29-year-old.

    Ok they just sold the controlling stake in YES to FOX for I am guessing a Bajillion bucks. Now they trade Huff for cash considerations. So they vault is being replenished. But the bull[en really needs some of these $.

        Actually, sadtwinsfan, right now it is 24 degrees in Hell, Michigan. So Hell has frozen over.

      No idea how true this is, but Wendy’s been writing about this business side of baseball for awhile:

      $150M from Fox + $30-$40M from national TV contract = almost $200M without selling a single ticket.

      Damn!

    Sabean gets a lefty named Huff.
    The Giants win the World Series.
    Works every time.

    Yogi said cash is just as good as money.

    Somebody please tell me what “cash considerations” are? I get PTBNL, but does this just mean they haven’t decided what the selling price should be? And how is this a trade as opposed to just a straight sale?

    he would be a starter on the bluejays, no kidding…

    I remember him for two things : 1. Getting getting hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of an infamous Yankee (History’s Greatest Monster!) and 2. Frequently walking batters and generally getting shelled. It doesn’t look like his ERA has changed much from his days in Cleveland.

    Just a cheaper Zito.
