In January, Aubrey Huff said he still wanted to play. But as is the case with most players, the game has told him that it’s through with him rather than the other way around. No one called for a spring training invite and now he says he’s “pretty much retired.”  Still, he sounds like he’s at peace with that. He’s actually enjoying it

“I have no regrets,” he said. “I love it. I’m having a great time with my wife and kids. I don’t even have an itch to pick up a baseball bat. I wondered if I’d feel that desire when everybody reported to spring training, but I didn’t.”

If, as it appears, Huff’s career is over, it ends with a pretty nice batting line of  .278/.342/.464 with 242 home runs over 13 seasons. Oh yeah, and two World Series rings.

      Hey Cpl. Klinger had a pretty good line for the Mudhens although the dress cuts down his range in the outfield.

    That $2 million buyout he received helps.

    “I’m pretty much retired.”

    That’s what I told my manager when I missed his weekly conference call today. He didn’t see the humor in it.
