Aubrey Huff is an Idiot

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on February 18, 2020

That is not even really arguable. And if you follow him on twitter you would know why. He’s a Trump Lover who’s obsessed with guns and raising his boys *the right way*. He makes many, as he calls them, *politically incorrect jokes*—none of which are funny even if you get past the *politically incorrect* part. I followed him for a while on twitter before he became just too stupid to continue to follow.

But here’s a newsflash: A lot of baseball players are stupid. They’re racist. They’re misogynists. You probably wouldn’t choose to hang out with them and have beers. But you also don’t erase him from the reunion for being an idiot. Not unless you’re also prepared to erase what he did for you in 2010. Anyone willing to do that? It’s not possible.

Aubrey Huff is right about one thing though: We don’t get 2010 without him. And I am able to overlook his imbecilic behavior to still call him a great Giant. A FOREVER Giant.

If Huff HAD ACTUALLY put together a plan and carried it out to fly to Iran to kidnap 10 women and bring them back to enslave them at his home in the USA I would say “Definitely don’t invite this guy to the reunion”. But he didn’t do that. And he didn’t try to kill Bernie Sanders.

If you missed it, here’s an example of one of his tweets. He’s a stick figure drawing moron.

If I was in charge I would have called him and said (basically) “Aubrey, we want you to come to the reunion because you were an integral part of 2010. But not if you are going to be an active distraction. No MAGA hats. No propaganda tee shirt. No speeches on the mic. Just come and be part of the group celebration.”

If he couldn’t agree to all that then I would tell him he’s not invited.

The Giants mishandled this.

    You state your position on this well, and make your point well; but I still disagree.
    I’m glad Huff won’t be there. The Giants made him pay a price for his hate-tweeting, and I have no problem with that.

  2. snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 6:54 am

    Maybe the Giants did ask Huff to muzzle himself, and not use the reunion as a cynical stage for his politics and idiocy, and continue on that occasion with his obvious attempt at trying to build himself up as some Fox hero. And he refused. We don’t know unless one of the parties say that did or did not happen. I have often ripped the Giants for adhering to a PR-based baseball approach. But, with a reunion, I agree they can do whatever they want. (Except dis-invite Timmy)…

  3. snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:09 am

    And, let’s stop the bullshit I’m hearing on radio right now about the First Amendment, and that Huff predictably wrapped it around himself on this. This has NOTHING to do with the First Amendment. The First Amendment bars the government from trying to shut this idiot up. The feds, the state, or local. The First Amendment has nothing, nada, zilch to do with private businesses deciding to disassociate themselves from morons who happen to be former employees. Twitter oould strike Huff’s account right now, and it’d be perfectly within its rights as a private business to do so, stepping on no Constitutional rights of Huff. Huff’s “free speech” butt hurt is as stupid an argument as if BF banned me from the Flap, and I claimed a First Amendment violation…

      Good post…I agree whole-heartedly, Tom.

  4. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:18 am

    I just think he should be there. When his name was announced I’d probably give him a knowing dude head not, otherwise just ignore him. Clap for the other guys. The way this is being handled he’s being seen as a martyr and that’s no good either.

  5. willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:37 am

    As Randy Newman put it, “He may be a fool but he’s our fool.” Hey Giants drew a line in the sand he’s obviously crossed many times over. So screw him and his nut job followers. It’s their party, their invite.

    Normally I would say don’t sink to their level when someone says stuff like he does, but there are times you have to say enough is enough and I’m not listening to it. Act right or get out. I did that to a guy in store dropping f-bombs over the phone to his lady friend, and said to him he can sort out his personal stuff somewhere else. Huff un invited himself and is certainly proud of it.

  6. willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:47 am

    loved “The 2020 baseball season can’t start soon enough!”
    just can’t get into ST, nor the silliness written about it. Chron story the other day was about how new hitting coaches were impressed by Posey driving the ball. Then Kapler loved Beede’s throwing session.
    um, it’s freaking Feb.
    Today on front page is B Ham “hoping he can run wild.” zzzzz

  7. unca_chuck said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:48 am

    Get over it. Yeah, baseball players are nominally one half step ahead of cave-dwelling inbred hillbillies, but really, the dude talks of killing Bernie Sanders and raping women, among all the alt-right buzzwords and hate speech that he regularly spouts is beyond the pale.

    And fuck these reunions. The attendance is gonna suck this year so the Giants are going to trot out the 2010 team as much as they can to suck the money out of gullible fans’ pockets. To that end, Huff is free to say whatever the fuck he wants. As are the Giants just as free to tell him to fuck off.

  8. chipower9 said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:53 am

    Huff is an idiot, and the Giants are absolutely within their rights to tell Aubrey and his hate-mongering to go fuck himself. I am cool with the way the Giants handled this situation.

    I’d tell Huff “fuck you and the horse you rode in on,” but I would hate to disrespect the horse.

  9. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:02 am

    listening to KNBR this morning, the morning show sent Huff a text inviting him to come on this morning to discuss. It was a very nice text, nothing inflammatory. His response back was this: “Not interested. You guys bury me all the time. Get fucked.”
    That’s about the response I’d expect from Huff. Still, he should be at the reunion…..

    • willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:22 am

      nah. but thanks for posting this. more he says you see how stupid he is.
      you don’t stand up for him.
      you stand up to him.

      • Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:35 am

        Lol you think I’m standing up for him? Fuck Aubrey huff, I think I’ve made that clear. I’m standing up for the 2010 glory. That’s it.

      • willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:14 am

        flavor I hear you, not what I meant at all. I think it was loo who said that yesterday about his teammates.

  10. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:14 am

    lol!

  11. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:36 am

    On the KNBR morning show Mac made a good point, in my opinion, that the reunion ceremony isn’t until August, which would mean, if the Giants invited him, they would have to hope that he didn’t tweet any more horrible stuff until August. And if he did (which is likely), they would then have to un-invite him after having already invited him, which would be a pain in the neck. Better to just do it now, given what he’s already tweeted, which is enough to exclude him already.

    • Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:51 am

      inviting him now is something that could be done completely without press. No one would know. If he did something between now and then at least they could point to that being the reason for the dis-vite. I don’t think those two tweets, which were just terrible jokes, are reason to not invite him at all.

  12. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:36 am

    Let me be clear (if it’s not clear): I don’t want huff at the reunion for HIM. I want him there for US. Seems to me it’s an incomplete reunion without everyone who gifted us the 2010 trophy. Unless they’re dead or in jail. Huff is neither he’s just an idiot.

  13. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:40 am

    I should point out that Murph and Mac disagree on the Huff exclusion, so even the two morning hosts on KNBR disagree on this.

  14. snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:54 am

    Shocking, now Huff has been booked on Fox & Friends tomorrow…

    • Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 9:00 am

      apparently, and I didn’t hear this, Huff just went on 95.7 the Game and it sounds like they pulled the plug on the interview. Maybe I read that wrong, would like to hear it tho if anyone has a link

  15. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 9:12 am

    great point

    • snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 9:27 am

      Probable? Huff will set up shop on reunion day at a restaurant or some place near the ballpark to sign stuff for $ and draw attention to his victimhood …

      Awesome thanks! I’ll check it out when I get home

  18. alleykat69 said, on February 18, 2020 at 9:37 am

    Huff should get a lead role in “One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest Part 2”, the guy is just as unstable as nitroglycerin!
    Don’t u guys think besides his idiotic beliefs, the final straw with the Giants management is that after he mocked the hire of Alyssa Nakken (sp) as a hitting instructor and said”Like I would ever listen to a college softball player about hitting technique” they don’t want any part more of his negativity around The clubhouse.
    I think it’s great what the Giants&49ers(Katie Sowers) are doing by bringing in woman that have the desire and qualifications to succeed and the players for both teams seem to have their backs.Not a person like Huff who just shits on woman, probably because his ex took him to the cleaners on his divorce and rightfully so Asshole..

    A‘s will have no radio station this season. Streaming only…

  21. djloo27 said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:09 am

    It shouldn’t even be a debate.
    Huff not only should be there, he should get a standing fuckin’ ovation.
    Yes, he’s a mentally ill jackass. Many of us probably are, too.
    The thin-skinned sissi-ness is out of control…

  22. willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:21 am

    unlike huff, someone who should be saying more imo is Fiers. He went from few seasons with Stros, where he was in dugout as an SP, to WS champs to Detroit, where according to Chron he told the Tigers Houston was up to something.
    then he did the same when Detroit traded him to A’s 2018.
    He waited to Nov. 2019 to say anything to commish yada yada.
    Now he’s gone silent again and isn’t saying anything more. hmmnn
    Tony Kemp, another ex Astro, signed with A’s this offseason and said he didn’t want advance notice on pitches coming when he was with Houston and also said he didn’t want to talk about others. but he and Fiers did talk when they met up at ST camp. again, hmmnn. Code of silence?

  23. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:27 am

    Where’s everyone stand on this Eddie D pardon? We all love him right? But this was wrong, right?

  24. willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Huff is free to say think and tweet whatever he wants, and will continue to do so whether Giants or any of local radio stations have him or not. If Giants find that offensive and his obvious disrespect to a member of their coaching staff hired by Kapler definitely qualifies among all the other nonsense then I think they are absolutely doing the right thing here. Let him be a nutjob in his private life–but not in our house and in front of our fans.

  25. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:34 am

    Can you imagine how many of us would get banned from shit for something we said in our past? Come on, these are just words, not actions. Divisive, yes. But if he promised not to be a distraction and agreed to make it just about the celebration l’d want him there. Come on this is Aubrey Huff. I haven’t forgotten what he did for us.

    • chipower9 said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:41 am

      If he agreed to keep his idiocy in check, I would be fine with him being there. If allowed to attend, will he bring the Rally Thong? 😉

    • willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:51 am

      bottom line, what he did as a player doesn’t give him right to be a fuckwad.

    • unca_chuck said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:57 pm

      The past? This was today, yesterday, and a couple months ago.

  26. willedav said, on February 18, 2020 at 10:40 am

    there was column I think under Jenkins heading over weekend in Chron that featured how in Krukow and Fosse’s day they reacted to suspected sign stealers. Incredibly easy and simple adjustments were made that altered whatever was put down- one was C tapping a part of body ahead of the sign added a number or subtracted it.

    So fastball became a curve or change and vice versa. You’re a hitter looking off speed and here comes mid 90s heat that ain’t breaking, look out. Or the opposite and you’re way off stride and out in front, you’re screwed. Seems like baseball 101. Players figured it out and reacted with effective counter

    • unca_chuck said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      Well, that is the deal with the sign stealing. If it was an ‘open secret’ why didn’t anyone do anything about it at the time? I mean really.All you have to do is call an outside breaking ball a fastball high and inside.

  28. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    Conservatives are the thin-skinned ones. They flip out when they don’t get their way. The clerk said “Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas!!!! It’s the end of religious freedom!!!!!”
    Conservatives believe in the free market, well the Giants just free marketed Huff out of the ceremony. If the conservative fans want to react, that’s their choice. And they’ll always make it about Trump, who can do no wrong in their eyes, because that is the way a cult works.

    • djloo27 said, on February 18, 2020 at 3:53 pm

      Zumie, you’re the one that always makes it about Trump.
      It’s gotten beyond annoying.
      There are plenty of other places for that.
      Why don’t you cool it already?

  29. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Huff’s ex-wife is probably horrified at any influence he has over their children.

  30. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    People have made the point that Huff basically violates the terms of agreement of Twitter, but because he’s a celebrity, sort of, he doesn’t get kicked off. They don’t kick celebrities off Twitter as quickly as non-celebrities.
    Notice he drew a penis for his stick figure. What a sick dude. I hope he gets help. Or more help than he’s already gotten.

  31. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I listened to that radio interview with Huff. I actually thought he conducted himself much more professionally than the guy interviewing him who kinda lost it before hanging up on him.

  32. unca_chuck said, on February 18, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    Yeah, I didn’t hear anything from Huff in the interview anyway that was as bad as the way Joe reacted.

    I thought Lo Neal’s question was actually pretty good regarding how Baer had his own run-in with his phone deal with his wife, and Kotter’s trying to cover up the harassment situation with the Dodgers. Even if he didn’t really ask a question. The point being the actions of Baer and Kotter are actual things that happened, not just the nonsensical tweets of a nut-job. Huff gets ostracized, and Kotter/Baer get a wrist-slap.

    That being said, Huff is now the darling of the right. He’ll milk this for all it is worth.

    • Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 3:07 pm

      Huff was already at the Bochy tribute, he didn’t do anything outlandish. The Giants made this worse by legitimizing him by ostracizing him. Nobody would have thought twice about this chump if he was just there sitting in the background with the rest of his teammates. But you’re correct, now he’s *emboldened* and the far right will give him the platform to really go nutzo. None of this needed to happen and it was bungled by the Giants…..

  33. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 5:01 pm

    I think just saying Huff is an idiot lets him off the hook. Like he’s too stupid to know what a bigot he is. Granted, a lot of bigoted people lack self-awareness; the reason someone is a jerk is often because they don’t know they’re a jerk. So how do you break that cycle? At some point there has to be some consequences for the jerkiness. The Giants made some consequences for him this time, and I support that.
    We’re dealing with that with Trump. Yes, Trump alert!! Feel free to scroll past.
    Trump has a GOP-controlled Senate that enables him, and he doesn’t really face consequences for his sociopathic behavior, and rarely has his entire life. His parents did ship him off to military school because he was such a rotten kid, but other than that, being born very rich has gotten him through.

    • djloo27 said, on February 18, 2020 at 5:22 pm

      • zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 5:26 pm

        Maybe, maybe not. I do know that after Trump is done being president he will be completely disowned by the Republican party. They’ll try to pretend he never existed. He’ll get the Dick Cheney treatment. Not invited to any major Republican events. Mostly forgotten.
        The movie “Vice” was made about Cheney, but was basically an unflattering study of how a sociopath can come to power in government. Not a film that conservatives wanted to see.

      • zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 5:32 pm

        Whereas, I still talk proudly about being an Obama supporter. I have the advantage of being on the right side of history. It doesn’t take a genius to be on the right side of history. You just pick the side that cares about social justice and equal rights. See, simple.
        On the other hand, how many Republicans walk around talking proudly about Bush, Jr., Cheney, and that whole gang of hoodlums? Not too many. I think the last Republican president that has kept popularity over the years is Reagan, and he left office the last time the Dodgers won the World Series, so quite a while ago.

  34. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    Krukow’s take on Huff:

    “I think that Aubrey Huff blew it, and I think him not being included is something he needs to take to heart,” Krukow said. “I don’t think it’s going to affect the invitation in 20 years should he compose himself a little more responsibly on social media. He had a chance to represent the Giants away from the community, even though he’s not under contract, I think it’s a contract you sign for life…I just think he’s been irresponsible and he’s paying a price for it.

    “The one thing that never really gets discussed: In every contract you ever sign with a professional team, is they have a clause in there where they talk about how you as a player have to comport yourself in an appropriate manner. Those are words that when you sign your contract, they’ll stop the discussion and point to it and say ‘Do you understand this?’ The whole idea is to create a positive image in the community on behalf of the Giants.”

    Krukow says the Giants’ decision to bar a former player from an event such as the upcoming reunion is not unprecedented, but declined to give specific examples. Krukow was also direct when asked if he’ll miss Huff at Oracle Park on Aug. 16.

    “Me personally? No.”

    This is pretty crazy:

    GRACEVILLE, Fla. (WDHN) – A Florida woman died Monday after an airborne deer that had been struck by a truck smashed through the vehicle in which she was riding.
    Edna Morgan Griffin, 81, of Chipley, Florida, died from injuries she sustained in the accident, which happened around 6:30 a.m. on a state highway. The driver of the car, Katherine Mills Comerford, 58, of Sneeds, Florida, sustained serious injuries and was taken to a hospital in Dothan, Alabama, for treatment.
    Jessie Alton Barnes, 47, of Graceville, Florida, was driving the 2018 Dodge Ram that initially hit the deer as it crossed the highway. The deer went airborne and crashed into Comerford’s 2010 Ford Escape.
    The deer reportedly went through Comerford’s car, hitting both the driver and passenger before exiting through the back window.
    Barnes, along with both of the passengers in his truck, was uninjured.

  37. snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:06 pm

    Does anyone know whether Manfred has the actual power in the current CBA to discipline the Astros players re: this type of systematic cheating? I assume he has some power of player discipline to an extent, else he wouldn’t be talking about the “immunity” he gave the players in exchange for them supposedly coming clean to him. He’s saying today that he thinks the players had no motive to lie to him once granted immunity, but he is not sure they came totally clean, which means he totally blew this thing. Of course they have motive to lie and still hide some of what they did, since they have immunity up front.

    First, if he has power, I don’t understand the general immunity at all. As in, “I will give you general immunity from discipline for whatever you’ve done, as long as you tell me everything”. No prosecutor worth his salt would give such immunity. You give a conditional immunity or limited immunity, based on what the target comes clean about, and whether your other avenues of investigation confirm that the target really has told you everything. If the targets have not come totally clean based on other sources’ info, you bust the targets for what you can prove, and the immunity deal is off.

    So, when Manfred says what he said today, the general immunity deal seems really stupid. Of course they still had motive to lie to him, since he gave away the immunity store basically without conditions. And, it’s not like MLB has no investigative unit. They have a serious investigative unit.

    Manfred could have told the players to come clean with me, and I’ll limit your discipline to maybe one year’s salary of a fine, or that plus 90 days actual suspension, or some subset of whatever it is the max discipline he could do under the CBA. But, don’t come clean in all things (buzzer?), which I’ll confirm with my investigators, and I’ll blow up the immunity and rip you a new one to the extent I can…

    • snarkk said, on February 18, 2020 at 7:38 pm

      And, re the Red Sox supposed cheating, he’ll have to give those players the same immunity deal, I would think…

  38. Flavor said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    For no particular reason, remember this? There was a time here at the blog where Twinfan had the power to *drag* posts he found offensive to Room B. Like he’d kidnap them and banish them to Room B. That is making me chuckle mightily tonight……

  39. alleykat69 said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Manfred has no power.Its all the Billionaire Owners that run the show.They have they’re puppet in Manfred lined up for several more years.Aslong as the majority of Owners are raking in cash they don’t give a shit what happens to the game anymore.
    Led by this asinine commissioner who calls the W/S trophy just a piece of scrap metal.Obviously this chump never played any recreational sports at all.And if he did,he was the last kid always chosen, and instead ran home to mommy crying 😢 nobody likes me..

    Imagine the fun if the investigation into the RedSox shows a key player in their cheating was Betts!!!

    • zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:55 pm

      Yeah, it would put pressure on the Dodger players to say something, and not be hypocritical because he’s a Dodger now.

  41. zumiee said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Manfred apologized today for how he referred to the trophy, as he was trying to clarify some other things today. What a cluster-bleep. It continues to stew because he didn’t vacate that championship.
    Vacating that championship was his chance to really deal with it.
    And if the Red Sox title in ‘18 had to be vacated, too, then so be it.
    It was Manfred’s chance for greatness, and he blew it.

  42. mrsprtdude said, on February 18, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    PS Manfred is a moron. “piece of metal” shows her doesn’t understand sports at all.

    When my kid was 10 in Pop Warner they were playing for a chance to go to championship round.Head coach says to the kids in the huddle before the game… “I know you guys think i’m crazy but I never once got to play for a championship. In 12 years of sports as a kid I never played for a title. You never know what the future holds so play your best and be there for your team mates” Parents (dads maybe) all thought he was cool, even though kids were likely clueless. My kid plays college lacrosse. A Junior. Never has played for a title. Me either

    Again to Manfred..What a dick!

    I could give two shits about Huff’s comments or whether he’s invited to the 2010 celebration. He was an integral part of the 2010 team so leaving him out is poor form but it’s just more bad PR out of Z’s front office. Whatever. Does this mean Burrell doesn’t show in support or something?

    I’d probably feel differently if it was Lincecum or Cain or even Sanchez but Huff was with the club for what two and a half years? Didn’t he leave the team in 2012 after anxiety attributed to his ongoing divorce at the time? I thought it was known that he has mental health issues. His comments and behavior should be taken with a grain of salt imo and my guess is the club caves eventually.

      Great post, Dirt…

    Yeah great Post Dirt!..Also Huff playing 2nd base may have triggered his anxiety faster..
    Here’s a crazy fact:Aubrey Huff’s first HR as a Giant 4/14/10 was a inside the park blast that took a crazy bounce off the wall in triples alley..

      And another:
      His only career sac bunt preceded Renteria’s WS winning HR.
      I think Burrell fanned in between….

    The Giants scheduled the 2010 team reunion in Aug for a game against the Rocks not in July against the Snakes. So it looks to me like they don’t want Bum to be there too.

      Or they already had their events calendar in place before he signed with a team. That explanation isn’t as sexy though.

      • Bozo said, on February 19, 2020 at 7:40 am

        Oh yes and nothing brings back memories of 2010 like having the reunion at a game against the Rocks. If the Giants had picked a game against the Pads, who they battled until the last day of the season, then I could see your point.
        But they didn’t so I’m going with sexy, they didnt want Bum.

    As for Huff and his mental issues it’s one thing to remember 2010. quite another what he did that offseason that caused him to crater in 2011 and beyond. By all accounts he lit up the banquet circuit and lapped up whatever drinks etc appreciative fans bought for him. Results were he sucked ever after.
    If his idea of satire is abducting foreign women to enslave them and to insult members of giants coaching staff and the mgr. that hired them, he’s not gonna be missed, ever.

    Dusty looked pretty weary in an interview yesterday. The real games can’t get here soon enough for Dusty.
    First real game, though? At the Angels, with Dodger fans buying up thousands of tickets. Good times!

    Huff got $22 mill from the Giants for ’11-’12 and cratered those 2 years amid his ‘mental health’ (re: alcohol/drug) issues. If anyone should be annoyed, it’s the Giants . . . Fuck Huff.

    They should’ve let him come, and be booed mercilessly. We’ve lost the ability to tolerate anything “wrong.” No, snarkk, it’s not a First amendment issue per se, but SCOTUS has nearly always protected heinous speech (cf. Cairo, illinois, case).
