Giambi: droppable?

Postby nuttinbutheat » Tue Apr 26, 2005 10:10 am

How long is long enough to see if he'll return to form? Is he expendable for a new closer like Fox or Turnbow or Burgos?

He's droppable. I would probably go after Turnbow, but I can't say I'm confident in him either. :-o

I've often thought about doing this, but I was also the one the pounced on him when he was dropped. he is too goo to assume that he will stink all year. He is still getting good walk numbers, which is a good sign.

Man, I have been thinking the same thing. I know once I drop him he will go on fire.

Can someone please explain how this happened? He had a something in his guts, and stops taking roids, and now he has no talent? Bonzo I'm only calling you out because I think you are the consensus. I would really like some explanation though.

I said this in week 2 -- watch him play. He goes to the box looking (or should I say, hoping) for a walk or HBP.

He doesn't have it in the tank. He is not swinging well at all. Proof? Have you ever seen a greater difference between a BA, .218 and a OBP .394? I guess the legs and arms go before the eyes.

I'd dump him, but I'm in a very deep league and there's nothing better on the wire.

Frankly, I don't think the Yankees will put up with this much longer.

I'm torn too.

I also have Pujols and Helton, so he hasn't started a game for me yet this year. The only reason I'm holding on to him is future trade value and lack of players on the FA market. If he's not hot by the middle of May, he's toast.
Help please:

I guess if nothing else, his past numbers have earned him the right to stay on my roster till at least mid May
