The guy was amazing in July, in August he has been just awful.

He hasnt gotten a hit since August 10th
and is hitting .174 in the Month of August.
What do you guys expect from the Giambino from here on out?

I wouldn't play him as a regular with his current slide, but I'm gonna keep him on my bench for the playoffs. This guy still has an OPS of .955 and he could prove valuable if he gets on a tear in crunch time.

As a Giambi owner I wonder if that tear will even be existent....

As a fellow Giambi owner, his June and July let us remember what he is capable of.

Giambi had a hot June, in my opinioin. He was trying to pull EVERY SINGLE PITCH. Eventually pitchers were going to figure out how to pich him. He'll adjust again, but this is how Giambi will be. Up and down, up and down.

He's been doing that for years. Pitchers aren't all of a sudden going to "figure out how to pitch him". He's dropping his shoulder as he gets into his swing. It's causing a longer swing than normal and it comes from being tired, lazy, and trying to kill the ball instead of hitting it. It's the same thing that was causing his skid earlier in the year. It was pretty obvious that his swing had shortened a little bit while he was on a hot streak but it looks like he's gone back to the bad habit and it's causing him to be late on everything. He'll get it straightened out eventually. It's a bad habit that keeps re-occurring.

I knew he wasn't going to continue at the pace he was going at, it was only a matter of time. He's hit another slump and my best guess would be that he picks it back up a little sometime in September; like a second wind.

He won't do what he did in June and July but he'll be better than he is right now IMO. They're going to need him if they want to make the postseason.

I have him on the bench, starting Morneau which isn't that much of a better option (in the utility spot).
