The Rays finally peddled away Aubrey Huff.

Today we check in with notes on Alex Rodriguez and Aubrey Huff.

  • Alex Rodriguez, the reigning AL MVP, limped into the All-Star break in an 0-for-11 skid. And he didn’t exactly tear it up during Tuesday’s game, taking an 0-for-2. A-Rod best hope that history repeats itself as for the past three years, his OPS during the second half has been 100 points higher. I mean, it’s not as if his numbers are bad — 61 runs in 84 games places him 10th in the AL and 90 hits, 19 homers, 65 RBI, nine steals, a .390 OBP and .505 SLG are all impressive totals — but given his stature in the game, he is held to a greater standard. Now, granted Rodriguez has laboured to an extent with a sore groin lately. But given the boos raining down on him at home, it’s clear that there’s a great number of Yankee fans who think that this ailment might best be cured with a good swift kick to the sore spot. Let’s face it, when you’re pulling in a salary that rivals the GDP of some third-world countries, people tend to expect superhuman results.
  • The Devil Rays, after seemingly years of speculation, have finally dealt away Aubrey Huff, sending him to the Astros. See here for more details on this deal.
