#freeBelt: Baggs unloads on Huff

19

NEW YORK – Don’t blame Aubrey Huff for failing to cover second base in the fateful ninth inning Saturday afternoon. Blame him for going 0-for-4 with two weak pop-ups, a double-play grounder and a squibber to the pitcher. Blame him for his error at first base that led to a damaging, unearned run for the Mets in the eighth inning. Blame him for being a .182-hitting veteran who is blocking Brandon Belt from regular playing time, if that is your prerogative. (And for a large segment of the faithful, it is.) ... If not for a fortunately timed zephyr in the top of the inning, the Giants would’ve lost 4-2 instead of 5-4. And Huff would have contributed an error and a very weak 0-for-4. The "Free Belt" movement would have pinned the loss on Huff, the first baseman, anyway. And their argument would’ve had merit.
