Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Orioles are close to signing Aubrey Huff to a 3 year, $18 million deal.
Huff was one of the more underrated players in the game for a while, and has now gotten overrated because of the decline in his offensive skills combined with the publicity he's gotten for being underrated.
Didn't really have much interest in the Rangers pursuing him. This isn't that bad a contract, I guess, all in all.
Update [2006-12-30 19:6:23 by Adam J. Morris]: -- ESPN now says it is 3 years, $20 million.
