Fox Spots' Jon Paul Morosi is reporting that the Giants have re-signed first baseman Aubrey Huff to a two-year, $22 million deal. The deal includes a club option for 2013, and the signing will be complete pending a physical. Huff is a major part of the seemingly thrown together team that just so happened to bring a World Series title to the Bay.
Huff led the Giants with 26 home runs and 86 RBI, with an accumulated batting average of .290 as the team's primary first baseman. His production on offense doesn't entirely indicate the $22 million price tag, but following a World Series win, the Giants have to be feeling good and have to figure they need to keep everyone where they are. Huff was a team leader during the team's playoff run and sparked a lot of inspiration with his "Rally Thong." Huff was only paid $3 million for his play last season, so perhaps we're seeing a bit of a World Series bonus.
Juan Uribe and Edgar Renteria, the Giants starters at third base and shortstop have yet to be re-signed. Freddy Sanzhes and Huff are the starters at second and the aforementioned first base.
Details on whether or not the Rally Thong will be included as a "must wear," in the contract will hopefully be acquired shortly.
