The San Francisco Giants placed Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list for "anxiety." It appears this is a mental issue and not a physical issue with Huff.
Huff texted manager Bruce Bochy a few days ago and told him he had a family emergency and was going home to Florida. The Giants were playing the Mets in New York at that time.
There was a lot of speculation by Giants' fans and the local media that the "family emergency" had nothing to do with family and that Huff wanted to just go away for a few days due to his struggles both at the plate and in the field.
Huff was a hero during the 2010 World Series run for the Giants but it has gone downhill since for him. He struggled mightily in 2011 and is on the verge of losing his job this season if Brandon Belt keeps developing at first base.
Andrew Baggerly of CSN Bay Area reported that Huff is going through a divorce right now so that issue could also be affecting his play.
Huff might also be missing his former college buddy and Giants' teammate Pat Burrell who retired after last season due to a nagging foot injury.
Let's hope Mr.Rally Thong himself can make a full recovery from his anxiety issues and gets back on the field as soon as possible.
