A Homer a Day Keeps Giambi Away (From First)

Will Tino get closer or (we pray) break, hitting coach Donnie Baseball’s record 8-game consecutive homer streak? We’d sure love to see that, but it ain’t gonna get any easier tomorrow night in Oakland against Rich Harden. Giambi, too, will have his shots in his old stomping grounds. Did we just say “have his shots.” Oy. Excuse us. Freudian slip. So sorry.

  • Why the F*&! doesn’t Giambi take his medicine, pun intended, and go to the minors? What an ass! He’s gonna get his money anyway, why doesn’t he just do what’s best for the team, selfish bastard.

  • My guess is that the Giambino is terrified that he’ll go to Columbus and bat .175 THERE, which would cause all the other 20- and 21-year-old Clippers to feel sorry for him and give him little sympathetic pats on the butt every time he Ks and mostly just avoid him like he’s got the Ebola virus, which, I’m guessing, would mean the end of Mr. Giambi’s mental stability. I mean, the guy’s hanging on by a thread as it is. I have to admit, I feel sorta sorry for him. But you’re right, if it’s better for the team, and it certainly is, he should suck it up and accept the assignment.

  • I think it is a disgrace that this jerk does not do what’s best for team. As big a jerk as he is, does it really compare with the jerk that gave him all the moneyt in the first place knowing the situation? If any mention of steroids were ever introduced into the Giambi contract, and he was still signed – he’s really not the only one who needs his medicine. All that being said, I do think he is doing the worst thing possible for his team, and it won’t be long before he notices that his teammates feel the same. It’s going to be a little harder for Tino to hit home runs when its not the little league field that is Yankee stadium right field.
