San Francisco Giants Talking to Huff/Uribe

The 2010 MLB Champion San Francisco Giants have quite a bit of decisions to make this offseason, with most of their championship chips upcoming free-agents. General Manager Brian Sabean talked to the Mercury News and explained that he has talked to the agents of both first-baseman Aubrey Huff and infielder Juan Uribe and is hoping to bring them back into the fold next year. Uribe seems to be in for a two to three year pact, as he has provided some terrific pop for a player that can play every position in the infield. As for Huff, the first-baseman provided a bargain for the Giants this year, and first-basemen who can hit 20+ home-runs are huge assets to clubs.

On another note, Sabean made it clear that Pablo Sandoval, the proclaimed "Kung Fu Panda", will not be having weight issues next year and if he does he will risk being sent back down to the minors despite his quality play. Sandoval seemingly weighed himself out of the third-base job this year, with Uribe slotting over to play throughout the playoffs. This is definitely a good move by San Francisco to force Sandoval's hand.
