San Francisco Giants Aubrey Huff Working On Deal To Stay With Giants: This Is A Nice Start To Off Season
[picappgallerysingle id="10125962"]Aubrey Huff did everything right last season. After struggling in 2009, he found his stroke and led or was near the top in virtually every offensive category that mattered. He would hit .290 with 26 homeruns, and 86 RBIs. He was the rock in the middle of the order that helped this lineup stay the course and score just enough o back this vaunted pitching staff first to the N.L. West title and then the World Series crown that had painfully alluded this team for so long. He did this all with a bargain base salary of 3 million dollars.
The man was rewarded for his discount and choice to play in San Francisco. After never even tasting post season baseball, Huff not only had a bite, but sampled the greatest meal of all with the World Series crown. Now it is being reported by numerous outlets that the Giants are working on resigning the veteran bat.
This is a solid move. Signing a guy like Huff that plays the game right, can play multiple positions, and has already proven he can give your team what it needs is never a bad move. Huff should continue to flourish by the Bay. He has a young slugger in Buster Posey to help lighten the load in the middle of the order. The Giants will probably add another power bat as well. The Bottom line is the Giants have some work to do this off season. Starting with Huff was the right move. Score another one for Brian Sabean.
