Aubrey Huff, a 2010 World Series hero for the San Francisco Giants, plans on playing in 2013 according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Huff, who hit a mere .192 in just 78 at-bats last season, was reportedly “derailed” by an episode of panic attacks in 2012. According to Heyman (Via Huff’s attorney Ed Hayes), Huff has no lingering issues of this problem after seeking treatment. Hayes said that “meditation is an amazing thing.”
The now extremely wealthy Zack Greinke also had a similar issue to what Huff dealt with.
As far as interest goes, Huff will likely have to watch the dominos fall before he gets a call. Lance Berkman is the first choice in the old, deciling players group, and Huff is a distant second along with a few others.
The man known for his “Rally Thong” during San Francisco’s improbable World Series in 2010 is native of Texas. So ideally, the Rangers would be a near perfect fit, but they’re eyeing Berkman as well. If and when Berkman signs, the same teams that had interest in team would likely come calling to Huff as an alternative.
