Aubrey Huff Reportedly to be Traded by Next Week

Resonating an unrelated forecast by MLB Rumors Clearinghouse dating back more than two months, baseball commentator Rob Dibble has relayed an unconfirmed report from a confidential source that Tampa Bay 3B/OF Aubrey Huff will be traded by next week. Speaking on "The Show," Dibble's afternoon XM radio broadcast, Dibble predicted Huff would be traded to the Angels or Yankees. Huff has been an obvious trade candidate as he is in the last year of his $6.5 million annual contract, and the Rays want to acquire value for him before he leaves the team at the end of the season. The origin of the information was not disclosed, but was related to Dibble by his co-host, Kevin Kennedy.
