I still don't think I've seen him bat lower than 4th yet....3rd or 4th, everyday.

He's not doing to bad, either..by the way.

No way Giambi bats 3rd ahead of Sheffield, or even 4th ahead of Matsui.

Torre is just trying to give him as many at bats as possible in the Spring.

Giambi will bat 6th. I can almost guarentee it.

I agree with Blankman that Giambi will bat 6th. Torre is obsessed with the lefty/righty lineup. Matsui will hit 4th with Giambi 6th sandwiched between switch hitters Posada and Williams. Giambi should be more open to hitting to leftfield considering he won't have his usual pop in his bat to jerk the ball into the rightfield stands. He does seem determined to be healthy this year and make it through the season. He should have his usual high OBP hitting about .270 with 25 dingers & 90 RBI's. A so-so start at 1st base in fantasy leagues.
I could be wrong in what I'm saying but I'll be dead before I realize it.
