Has anyone thought this too

Aubrey Huff already is an average hitting first baseman. He has declined a lot, and is likely to decline a lot more this year. I will tell you why to. Obviously, for one he is on the wrong side of 33. Also, he is making the transition to the national league.  For almost all of Huff's career he has been an AL hitter. Hitting in the National league is a lot different from hitting in the American league. Look what happened to Ryan Garko. Garko was a pretty good hitting first basemen before coming to the Giants. He struggled a lot in the national league because of his limited experience in it. He said that was one big reason for his decline. Huff is not was not a good hitter last year. Right now he is not a good hitter. I do think he will be a .220 hitter, maybe .230-.235 if he can get used to the national league after a couple months. The Orioles and Tigers' stadiums are a lot easier to hit in than the pitchers' park of AT&T . Huff had better hitting support around him in Detroit and Baltimore as well.Huff's average is likely to drop at least 10 points. I think we should have not signed him, let Ishikawa start and just let Posey and Bowker get at bats there and share. They could hit better than Huff. If he could not hit well with better hitting around him and in a smaller stadium, how can he hit well with worse hitting around him, a pitcher's park, and limited experience hitting in the national league. Geez, if you thought Garko was bad.
