Turns out O’s free agent flop Aubrey Huff was on a Sirius Radio show — Bubba the Love Sponge — last week and said some mildly incendiary things about Charm City and very incendiary things about life on the road. The conversations — transcript one, transcript two — range from masturbation to hangovers to country music, all shockingly true tales of the life of a ballplayer from Ohio.
Aubrey Lewis Huff (born December 20, 1976 in Marion, Ohio) is a Major League Baseball Designated Hitter for the Baltimore Orioles. He is also a giant pile of horse shit.
All told, the stuff he had to say isn’t that bothersome. I wouldn’t want to live in Baltimore either. And, sure, Huff’s personality and attempts at humor come off as being lame, but I don’t listen to Bubba the Love Sponge and no one else has to either.
Plus, he wouldn’t be taking heat for this if he didn’t have such a (predictably) mediocre season. But, like we said about Melvin Mora, declining players and bad contracts, that’s what Baltimore does!
Update No. 2: The Dugout does this story right.
