Will Aubrey Huff Make The Giants Postseason Roster?

With the NL West wrapped up the San Francisco Giants are already looking ahead to the second season, and just who will be making their 25-man roster for the playoffs. One player on the bubble is veteran Aubrey Huff, one of the few positional players leftover from their 2010 World Series team. And if skipper Bruce Bochy had to choose today, Huff would likely make the grade, according to CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly.

"Well, you have to like his at-bats," Bochy said of Huff, who is 5 for 9 with two walks and just one strikeout as a pinch hitter since coming off the DL on Sept. 1. "He's doing a great job with that. It's so valuable for a club to have a good left-handed pinch hitter, especially against a closer with the game on the line."

Huff, 35, has dealt with anxiety and knee issues this year, and hasn't been an everyday player for the Giants all season. He's certainly a liability on the base paths as well, though his veteran presence and ability to produce a decent at bat could likely make the grade for the postseason. Let us not forget, Edgar Renteria was the World Series MVP in 2010, maybe it can be Huff in 2012.
