<this is true as well.....the guy went through a lot...and people just trashed the hell out of the guy..wanted a 22-23 year old who had hit .330 to be sent to the minors or DFA'd...ridiculous....
I want huff gone, i dislike him for his lack off effort going into and during last year...but not for his anxiety and issues he's developed since the beginning of the year with whatever he has going on..good luck to him on that front...hopefully he gets it all worked out for the best..
"I hope he gets well. Not for the Giants' collective sake, but for his own."
Exactly this!!!! This is the time that baseball doesn't matter. I'm actually a lot different than many on this board. I absolutely love Huff. It bummed me out when he wasn't playing well but I still like him. So sad that he has to deal with this in such a public way.
And you are right, some of those who have never experienced depression, anxiety, etc. can not even begin to understand just how difficult it can be.
My girlfriend is diagnosed with clinical anxiety stemming from some bad past relationships. She goes to her meetings and counseling. When anxiety moments do occur it's very important that I support her, but to not react strongly in any way. I have to maintain form at all times and stay very calm. Reason being because if I act worried it only drives the anxiety event even deeper, and if I act rudely, or wrongly, and not be supportive, well that is just mean and probably harmful to her.
Though I am on the Huff needs to not play wagon, I can understand what is happening with him to some degree and feel badly for him. I hope that he gets the help that he needs.
And to chango, your responses are ignorant, completely and totally. Believe it or not buddy, life is not a black and white chalk board and is full of grey. Learn compassion and empathy, it can take you much farther in life then just throwing out blanket statements, not everyone is perfect like you expect them to be.
i hate to bring it back to this but...
I have anxiety because I am supporting my family and if i lose my job i don't know how i can support them without an income. my life and my family depends on me.
Aubrey Huff has Anxiety because he won the world series 2 years ago and hasn't lived up to expectations since? In addition if he stops playing baseball today, he'll still have the security of knowing he's made enough money to at least put his kid through college..
Man, he might need a lesson or two from Zito about how to deal with expectations and shortcomings.
You addressed this to the wrong poster.
Changokid is the one who said that.
