New Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval caught wind of Aubrey Huff's recent comments Friday, and did not take them lightly.
"Who is Aubrey Huff?" Sandoval asked, responding to a fiery post by Huff on Facebook. "What is important here is to see where the person who made those comments is, and where I am now, that's what counts."
"Those were completely incoherent comments," Sandoval said, according to ESPN.
"I'm not selfish. I am where I am because I have worked very hard and have always done my job. Anyone can say whatever they want. I will not lose sleep or stop working my hardest because of that."
When sharing his sentiments publicly, Huff implied he was speaking for current Giants players who are not in a place to comment.
"Let them speak up and say whatever they want," Sandoval said. "I'm not selfish and I have always worked very hard for my team. Those are things I have proven to my teammates, especially working with young players."
When asked if he thought he would fall out of favor with longtime Giants fans, Sandoval replied: "Yes, maybe some people will change their perception. But I felt I really had something to say, and I wanted to get it out. It's nothing against the fans or against the players; fans always supported me in good and bad times."
"But it's nothing personal," he commented. "It's time to move on and turn the page, and now I am focused on my new home with my new teammates, and have left the rest behind. I am focused on my own teammates now and spending as much time together as possible."
