When the Orioles traveled to New York to be swept by the Yankees the Orioles’ broadcasters reported that the Mets might be interested in trading for Aubrey Huff.
Huff-Daddy has told reporters that he wants to stay in Baltimore, he left Tampa Bay when they were rebuilding and he feels that the O’s are on a similar path to success.
Despite Aubrey’s “horse shit” comment about Baltimore on Bubba the Love Sponge, he’s rallied back and become a fan favorite in Charm City.
Last season he was the most valuable Oriole, he hit .304 with 32 homeruns, including a killer July when Huff hit .386.
In 2009, the O’s released Kevin Millar and Huff became the O’s everyday first baseman. He’s the clean up hitter and has 7 homers on the young season. Huff solidifies a dangerous top 4 in Baltimore lineup.
His personality is also a favorite among those around town. Huff isn’t the most chizzled athlete, he’ll admit it, but he shows fire and passion on the diamond. Aubrey gave Joba Chamerlain 3 fist pumps after hitting a homerun off of him on May 10th and I love the passion.
Aubrey is 32 and could be a perfect centerpiece for the future winning teams of Baltimore. That’s what I’m rooting for at least.
Huff may not be a part of the "youth movement" but he is still very talented and has a few good years left. I agree with your point.
I think Huff can remain a centerpiece for the rebuilding of the Orioles.
who is in the picture?
I forgot about the Baltimore bash, but the fist bump added some love for me and Huff.
I think he may be getting some look-sees from the Mets for a trade….
I was waiting for someone to ask about the picture. I'm honestly not sure. I googled pictures of Aubrey Huff and that one came up…weird right?
