Aubrey Huff Wearing a Red Thong as a Slump Buster

Jason Giambi sent collective LOLs throughout the internet a few years ago when revealed he wears a gold thong to break out of slumps. Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff will probably produce the same effect, but maybe to a higher degree.

Stuck in a 3-for-32 slump, Huff has turned to a red thong to try and change his luck, as Andrew Baggarly relays from the San Jose Mercury News. From Bags:

The last thing we need is for Huff to go 4-for-4 with the thong. Then he’ll wear it the rest of the season. Ordinarily that wouldn’t be a problem, but he walks around the clubhouse in it. He conducts interviews wearing only his thong. I’m not sure about this, but I think he wears little else while in the food room, too.

This may have just been a Giants problem before but apparently now it’s the media’s problem as well. Let’s hope for everyone involved that Huff breaks out of it quickly. With an OPS hovering around .950 a month ago, he can be a major force in San Francisco’s lineup. You know they’d like him to return to that form.

Huff tied in knots at the plate, slug-a-Giant, Guillen runs a 4-K, etc. [Mercury News]
