Huff on contract year
Aubrey Huff is coming off a strong offensive season and heading into the final year of his contract, but he said yesterday he is not going to go about things any differently than he did last season.
He said he doesn't even understand the concept of a contract push.
“I don’t know how guys do that,’’ he said. “Some guys, they go into their contract years and put up huge numbers. It amazes me. Adrian Beltre, I think he hit 49 home runs in his contract year. I don’t know how they do that. I just go at it the same way, go one day at a time, and see what the numbers are at the end. You see these guys put up ridiculous numbers and then they don’t do as much the next couple of years. Does that mean they’re just playing for the money?”
