The season ages: Giambi's final stats?

Postby The Jury » Wed Sep 14, 2005 3:31 pm

I'm thinking his line will look something like

80 R, 35 HR, 90 RBI, 105 BB, .290

He's now my utility hitter ;-D

Looks about right to me. What a comeback. I know his downfall was somewhat self-imposed, but even so it's great to see him doing so well again.

I believe I had:

.280 or .290 25 HR 80 or 90 RBI preseason.

Didn't expect him to outperform those numbers, but I'm very happy for him ;-D

I think he'll be hitting .290-.300 34 HR 92 RBI at the end of the year ;-D

Probably the 2nd Half AL MVP ;-D

man can you imagine if he wasnt cold early on :-° he couldve hit 40+ home runs easy and 120+ rbis. i see him ending up with 35 - 40 hrs, and around 90 rbis. it looks like he's becoming the slugger we should've gotten from the beginning.

it's really impressive to see his numebrs when you consider he's had about 150-200 fewer at-bats than most other players.

Ya he wasn't he even getting full PT the first few months, he is almost back to his old full form again. I wouldn't be surprised if next year he puts up his numbers of old when he was back with the A's and his first years with the Yankees. Im just glad I got ahold of him in at least one league.

I had him pegged at around .265 30hr 80rbi. I thought he would be a great late round flier, but I didn't expect him to have quite the year he had.

I don't think you'll see the .320AVG but it wouldn't surprise me to see 35-40 HRs again with 100-110 RBIs next year. But I won't be the one to draft him in the 5th round.

Yeah, I'm pretty mad that he is still allowed to play baseball, but I'm biased. :)

I think he could be easily overrated next year, and might go earlier than I'd like. The possibility that he's doing something again--say HGH--cannot be ignored, and if he is, the possibility that it will again affect him negatively is there.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

After being sick like he was last year, one would think he would stay away from the muscle enhancers. The guy really didn't need to be jacked up. I mean, look at his OBP! It is through the roof because he is a human walk machine!He has a good eye as far when to take his swings or just take a base, which makes him leathal in a lineup that makes a fantasy owner drool(this is coming from a Yankee hater too mine you!)
