Must be a big story, Sky over here usually only put the baseball scores on the news tape at the bottom of the screen, this is one of very few that have made that feed.

As per usual, MLB is running behind the other big US sports leagues. The NFL, NHL, and NBA all have female assistant coaches. The NBA got there first and has the most, presumably because there's an established pro basketball league for women that's been running for decades. Football, hockey, and baseball all lack that.

Huff has always been a moron.

This was a classic response:

I understand that this information may be difficult for you to comprehend, seeing that both the Giants and your ex-wife voided their option with you well before the 6 year mark.

Funny, that's what I was thinking as I was reading them. But I've learned take the good with the bad; I wouldn't have you guys to talk to (or OOTPB) if it weren't for the internet. Usually, though, I am a firm adherent to the adage "Don't read the comments."

Huff is an all-around post MLB career disaster.

If the Giants have a 10 yr on-field reunion of their 2010 WS Championship team it will be interesting to see how today's fans react to him.

The majority, being unaware of his personal history, will celebrate his time as a Giant. Of those aware of his history, some will support and some will be against.
