No Guts, No Glory:
We all know about the San Francisco Giants’ stellar pitching staff. But that may not be the reason that the Giants are on the brink of advancing to the World Series. The real reason just might be a red thong worn by Aubrey Huff. A diamond studded one at that.
As you probably know, back on Aug. 30, Aubrey Huff began wearing his lucky red thong with rhinestones that spell “PAPI” on the waistband. Well, it turns out Papi is the name of the company.
So, totally unsolicited, they sent three huge dress-size boxes filled with thong underwear in every color of the rainbow to AT&T Park, ATTN: A. Huff. No joke, these boxes stood 3 feet tall. And Huff became a giddy, thong-flinging Santa Claus this morning, distributing them to everyone in the clubhouse.Yes, a giddy grown man was throwing red thongs at other grown men in a MLB clubhouse. If that isn’t awkward enough, how about we crank up the awkwardness by adding San Jose Mercury News’ Andrew Baggerly to the mix.
So yes, the “Rally ...

Some of you may recall Aubrey Huff’s attempt to get the San Francisco Giants on a hot a streak with a Rally Thong. At the time he predicted that the Rally Thong could produce 20 wins. So far the team is 25-12 with the sexy garment and in the middle
Two plays at first base, each involving Aubrey Huff. On one, a ball that seemed ticketed for right field and an RBI single became an out. On the other, a ball that seemed ticketed to become a routine groundout wound up...
If America thought San Francisco was a hedonistic city with loose morals, wait 'til they get their panties in a bunch over this.Aubrey Huff is providing rally thongs to every single player on the San Francisco Giants.The San Jose Mercury News reports the Giants' first baseman received three enormous parcels of the panties ahead of Tuesday's Game 3 win, and was tossing...
It certainly appears that on Thursday night, when he needed it most, Huff’s lucky underwear deserted him. “It just wasn’t my day,” he said.
Aubrey Huff endured a rough night Thursday as the Giants dropped Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, 4-2. His third-inning misplay of Shane Victorino's grounder abetted Philadelphia's three-run rally. Huff also went 0-for-4, stranding four baserunners in his final three at-bats after being robbed of a hit.
It was late August and the San Francisco Giants were locked in a tight struggle for first place in the NL West. The Giants had gotten help at the waiver and non-waiver trade deadlines, but needed something more to push them past the San Diego Padres, who were led them by five games. What could give the Giants that extra boost? A rousing speech from manager Bruce Bochy or profanity...
PHILLIES 4 - GIANTS 2
On a wet and sloppy night, the San Francisco Giants played a wet and sloppy game. The game came down to two crucial plays, Roy Halladay's bunt that wasn't foul and Aubrey Huff's 2 run error. The Giants' inability to take advantage of scoring opportunities was another part of problem last night.
It's amazing to me how the...
This was a bad game. This was just a bad game. Nothing seemed to go right for the Giants in this one. Panda choked. Two runs scored on Aubrey Huff's fielding error. Jayson Werthless hit a home run...Begin Slideshow
The NLCS is headed back to Philadelphia. Aided by Aubrey Huff's two-run error, the Phillies scored three runs in the third inning and beat the Giants 4-2 to force Game 6 on Saturday.
Philadelphia scored three runs in the third against San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum with help from an error by Aubrey Huff, and Roy Halladay escaped a couple of jams to help the Phillies maintain a 3-2 lead over the Giants after six innings in Game 5 of the NL championship as they tried to stave off elimination.
They say death and strange baseball plays come in threes. Don't they say that? Well, they ought to. Anyway, the San Francisco Giants might rue the third inning of Game 5 of the NLCS come the offseason, because it could be when their season started to die.Unfortunate mistakes by Tim Lincecum, Pablo Sandoval and Aubrey Huff — along with what had to be the shortest bunt in history...
