No matter where, Huff a sponge for controversy



Toward the end of his tenure with the Devil Rays, Aubrey Huff took to the local radio airwaves to vent about his frustrations about playing in a Rays uniform.

But those soundbites can’t nearly match what Huff said last week on the nationally broadcast Bubba the Love Sponge Show on Sirius Satellite Radio. Most of what Huff said can’t be put in this space because of its extremely graphic nature (A partial transcript can be found online. You’ve been forewarned).

Huff disparaged the city of Baltimore, calling it a “horse----“   town compared to Tampa , where he still lives. Last offseason, the Orioles signed Huff to a three-year, $20 million contract. 

Huff talked about his escapades on the road, which he said includes waking up at 1 in the afternoon hungover. As for studying video before games, Huff said, “All this studying? Honestly, you're gonna look at a piece of, a TV, and say this guy, this guy is going to throw me this way? No, he might throw you a different way! Who cares? Just see it and hit it.” Huff later took back his comments in a (Baltimore) Sun story, saying he was acting. One thing's for sure, Huff has probably already worn out his welcome in Charm City with two years remaining on his deal.


Think the Rays are glad something like this didn’t happen on their watch?
