Rays must hang on to Huff

We have heard the Devil Rays have decided to build through the farm system, therefore, we won't see a huge jump in payroll because they are going to keep "core players." With Aubrey Huff slated to make $7-million, the "experts" have said he will be traded before the All-Star break. He is the team's best pure hitter. I would think this would make him a "core player."
