Aubrey Huff has continued his antics in San Francisco, where he has been a hit in the Giants clubhouse. His magical thong helped them make the playoffs last year and he had some big hits on their run to the title. He also enjoys crying after wins and showing off his moves from the dance club , which he did for Showtime's “THE FRANCHISE: A Season with the San Francisco Giants,” which will be like “Hard Knocks” for baseball. I know Huff, who played for the Orioles from 2007 to 2009, thinks the Baltimore nightlife scene is horse manure -- well, he put it a slightly different way -- but it looks he got his moves at Power Plant Live or in Federal Hill.

The Orioles' fortunes changed dramatically over the course of 24 hours this weekend in Tampa Bay. On Friday night, the visiting clubhouse of Tropicana Field was quiet - the air full of frustration - after the Orioles suffered their eighth shutout loss of the season in a game in which they allowed just two runs. But by Sunday evening, the Orioles headed back to Baltimore celebrating day-after-night domination of the division-rival Rays, taking two of three at the Trop to cap a successful six-game road trip against the American League East with yet another dramatic extra-inning Orioles victory.

The Orioles signed first baseman-outfielder Aubrey Huff to a three-year, $20 million deal this offseason. Huff, 30, has played 6 1/2 of his seven major league seasons with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He is a career .285 hitter with 141 home runs and 487 RBIs. He was born in Marion, Ohio, and got married a couple of weeks before reporting to training camp. What are your early impressions on the team and the clubhouse? -- It's great. So far, so good. It's a great group of guys. Everybody is very positive and upbeat for the season.

The San Francisco Giants placed former Oriole Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, two days after he left the team because of an episode of anxiety.

Manager Bruce Bochy spoke with Huff on Wednesday afternoon after days of exchanging text messages. Asked whether Huff's anxiety was related to personal or baseball problems, Bochy said: "I don't know if he even knows.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.-- --The seven-letter word keeps resurfacing in the life and baseball times of Aubrey Huff. Without. Huff, the Orioles' new middle-of-the-lineup slugger, graduated from a Texas high school without being drafted and without getting any serious looks from Division I colleges. In his first seven seasons in the majors, Huff hit 141 homers without fanfare because he played primarily in the obscurity of Tampa Bay, a place without baseball tradition, without a consistent fan base.

THE KEY TO getting into this year's postseason may be found in the most foreign of places for baseball success: Tampa Bay. Really. The Devil Rays have lost 90 or more games in each of their first seven seasons and are on pace for their third 100-loss season. But they may decide which teams make the playoffs, and not just because they have befuddled the New York Yankees this year. As the July 31 trading deadline nears, this much is certain: The 2005 trade market is filled with more buyers than sellers.

Team / / Orioles Position / / Right-handed starter Comment / / Orioles fans have been waiting for him to come into his own since the big right-hander shut down the Chicago White Sox in his 2004 major league debut. He has won 31 games in his three seasons, and everyone knows about his fastball in the high 90s and power curve. But he has been hampered by an inability to throw strikes. Cabrera turns 26 in May, and, with a full year under the tutelage of pitching coach Leo Mazzone, this could be his year of maturation.

Justin Verlander seemingly has been mediocre, with the Tigers winning only two of his six April starts, but his 3.64 ERA is actually a good sign. This is the first time since 2007 that he has finished the first month with an ERA below 5.50. … Manny Ramirez's retirement allowed the Rays to slide Sam Fuld onto the All-Star ballot, and manager Joe Maddon expects him to get a lot of support. Maddon said Fuld has been just as good in left field as Carl Crawford . … The Giants are playing Brandon Belt in the outfield at Triple A. He will go to an outfield corner when he returns rather than unseating Aubrey Huff at first base.

The epiphany hit Aubrey Huff hard this past offseason, when the San Francisco Giants were the only team to offer him a major league contract, when several other accomplished hitters had to accept minor league deals or didn't get a deal at all. "I knew if I didn't have a good season this year, it's over," said Huff, seated in the Giants' clubhouse before their 10-2 victory over the Orioles in Monday's series opener. "I looked at the offseason free-agent market this year, and Hank Blalock couldn't get a job, Jermaine Dye still doesn't have a job. I knew if I didn't produce this year, it's conceivable that it could be it for me. I want that one playoff series.

The San Francisco Giants landed a new left-handed cleanup hitter - and Aubrey Huff made a good-natured reference to the slugger who used to hold the spot. "Listen, if Barry Bonds hit home runs there, I can, right?" Huff joked about the home run king's feats in San Francisco's pitcher-friendly ballpark. The Giants and Huff completed their one-year, $3 million contract Wednesday after the first baseman passed a physical. The sides agreed to terms last weekend. Huff was traded from the Orioles to the Detroit Tigers in August and batted .241 with 15 home runs and 85 RBIs in 150 games between the teams.

This time last year, Aubrey Huff and Melvin Mora were heading into their contract years with significant momentum. Huff was the 2008 Most Valuable Oriole and the American League Silver Slugger Award winner at designated hitter after batting .304 with 32 home runs and 108 RBIs. Mora hit 23 homers and tied his career best with 104 RBIs while batting .376 in the second half of 2008. One disappointing season later, however, Huff and Mora are without jobs as spring training approaches.

Will Aubrey Huff (left, 17) still be an Oriole at 12:01 a.m.? 2 We're talkin' about practice: NFL teams can fill out their practice squads. With so many Ravens injuries, fans of the home team might want to familiarize themselves with their practice players. 3 Mild West: It's mediocrity at its best, as the two best teams in the NL West - the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks - meet at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.

Dave Trembley reminds you of a guy in a knife fight and all he has to defend himself is a swizzle stick. Sure, it's unfair to judge the Orioles manager solely by the team's cataclysmic collapse since the All-Star break. Key players (George Sherrill, Aubrey Huff) were traded from under him. Others (Adam Jones, Nolan Reimold, Brad Bergesen) were hurt. The starting rotation was shaky, even before they shut down a couple of promising youngsters to save their arms. The bullpen was one giant mushroom cloud day after day. None of that was Trembley's fault.

Once again, Orioles fans are in the autumn of their discontent, and it's hard to make a case for anything short of despair as they watch their rebuilding team coming unglued at the end of another losing season. This is the point when The Plan was supposed to bear a little fruit. Not much, mind you, but enough to confirm that the O's finally are headed in the right direction and that better days just might be on the other side of the coming offseason. Sorry, but the peaches look bruised and the tree doesn't look hearty enough to get through another cold winter.
