ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

December 13, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

It sounds like there are some teams just waiting for the Orioles to non-tender Rodrigo Lopez. Once they find out it won't happen, perhaps the trade talks will heat up.

Lopez made $3.75 million this past season after requesting $4.5 million in arbitration. What's he worth this winter?

The word on the street is Aubrey Huff still is looking for a big payday, something in the $9 million-per-year range. Good luck. The Orioles aren't going there.

Where would you play Huff, keeping in mind that defense isn't his strong suit? And could he co-exist with Jay Gibbons, or are they too similar?
