The Veteran has Rookie Coping Skills. I bet its really Alcoholism, Prescription Meds, or some other substance messing with his Brain...
Nonetheless, I hope he gets better emotionally for him and his family, then on the field for his baseball brothers.
Go Huff, Go Giants.
If this was a bruised ego don't you think he would have gone on the DL last year when his numbers were horrible?
I'm guessing this has very little to do with baseball. He is a person with real emotions (and issues) who just happens to play baseball on the major league level. That doesn't keep him from having real disorders/mental health problems. Some of his struggles recently in his profession could have made the problems more noticeable but I seriously doubt they are the cause.
"Huff’s personal life is going through upheaval as well.
According to court records from Hillsborough County, Fla., his wife, Baubi, filed for divorce on Jan. 31. The couple has been married since 1997 and has two young sons. The latest case management conference between the parties was held April 11.
Huff’s tough upbringing has been well chronicled. He was 6 years old when his father, Aubrey II, was killed as an innocent bystander in a fatal shooting. Huff was raised by his mother, Fonda, a strong woman who bought him a batting cage on a supermarket deli worker’s salary while taking night classes to earn a degree in educational counseling."
You don't know sh*t what's going on his life. Don't just make that assumption...
I made an assumption at first and fully take it back...
"Huff was criticized in 2011 for his attitude and behavior in the clubhouse."
Huff did come to camp out of shape following the World Championship season. For that there is no excuse. However, there has never been ANYONE say he has had a behavior issue in the clubhouse.
They were just discussing it this morning on KNBR with Baggs. Huff has always been a good clubhouse guy through the good times and the bad. His teammates like him very much.
Can we take a break from all the speculation please guys?
None of us has any idea what the issue is, so can we leave the distasteful comments out of it.
It's pretty disrespectful and he deserves better than to have his own fans talking about him like that.
We'll all find out soon enough.
I can not believe the crapola being spewed on this board. This is waaaay beyond baseball, this is a person's personal life in dissray. I am a huge antihuff guy right now but for crying out loud he is a man. And that man brought a Champinonship this orginization. Hate him if you want but I am disgusted with some of the things being said here.
I hope it all turns out well in the end.
