Cody Ross was the Roy Hobbs of the 2010 season, coming out of literally nowhere (well, the waiver wire) to become a baseball icon. For at least one Fall.
But he wasn't the only fairly surprising postseason bat for the Giants.
Both Aubrey Huff and Juan Uribe are free agents this winter.
Huff had a good regular season (26 homers, 86 RBI, .290 average), but the numbers have dipped noticeably since 2008. He was a major contributor in the playoffs, especially in the World Series, when he had three extra-base hits and four RBI.
But is that enough to warrant a huge, long-term deal, at age 33?
The Giants' pair of clutch shortstops, Edgar Renteria and Juan Uribe are also not guaranteed a spot back in 2011. Renteria may end up retiring like he says. But what about Uribe?
He didn't have a great postseason, hitting less than .150 in 47 at-bats. But he had two huge home runs, one in the NLCS and one in the World Series. The Giants might not win the title without those two dingers.
That should entice suitors outside of San Fran.
