Trade Giambi while he still has value?

Postby Quaker » Wed May 07, 2003 10:52 pm

Everyone says have some patience, he started slowly last year. Last year he hit .280 in April, that's not slowly. Hitting below .200, THAT is slowly. Right now he still has value because people think he can turn it around. However, if by the end of May, he's only .230, he'll be pretty hard to get rid of.
Should Giambi owners unload him while they still can?

Your not going to get the quality replacement at 1st that he's worth and will still probably put up for the year.

Your right, he's really struggling bad and everything I've read says he's having serious problems mentally with the game. So what will probably happen is he'll miss out on the all-star game, then a few weeks after he'll explode and take a run at his numbers from last year.

Odds are he'll straighten out and give you more than anything you could trade him for, so you're probably better off hanging onto him. Same for Tejeda, Berkman and the other guys who are off to ridiculously bad starts (what is up with that?).

Anyway, you're unlikely to get fair value, so hang onto them. If someone's offering a Zito or a Manny for them, then feel free to go for that, but that probably ain't happening.
