As some of our readers may know, there is a creature in Orioles lore known as the Magilahuff. It was a three-headed monster that played first base for the Orioles early this decade.
The first head, Gibbons, was defeated when he was ostracized from the team for his utter lack of production after quitting steroids.
The second head, Millar, felt he could help the Blue Jays increase their pop-out number.
We learned today that the final head of that beast was shipped out to Detroit.
I’m probably as excited about this trade as Huff was to get that home run off Joba.
As Tom Ludlow put it earlier, “We traded the corpse of Huff for a living person, so it was a good trade.”
He’s probably as excited to be going to Detroit as he was to come to Baltimore. After all, I hear Detroit is beautiful these days.
