Aubrey Huff has simple 'see it, hit it' plan against Stephen Strasburg

MILWAUKEE — Earlier on the Giants' trip, Aubrey Huff made the crazy suggestion that Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez, the winningest pitcher in the big leagues, could be just what their struggling lineup needed.

Huff was right on the money.

So what does Huff think about today's matchup against Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg, the most hyped pitching prospect, in, like, ever?

"Well, you don't read the newspaper when you're up there hitting," Huff said. "Take him like any other pitcher. See it and hit it."
Huff figures Strasburg can't be any better than Pedro Martinez in his heyday.

"When Pedro was Pedro, he was electric, ridiculous," Huff said. "Every pitch was a 10 out of 10. Everything he threw was an out pitch."
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he probably would start Huff, Pat Burrell and Andres Torres in the outfield. Travis Ishikawa would return to first base. And Buster Posey would catch Matt Cain.
