The Yanks would probably like a 40+ HR first baseman, but you have to think they'll stick with Giambi at this point. I could definitely see the Mets going after him hard, although you have to wonder about a homerun hitter going to Shea.
I feel like it would make a lot of sense for him to go to the Blue Jays, who want a power bat and have some extra money to spend. I haven't heard much talk of it though.
i agree that the yankess should stick with giambi and i don't see him going to the bronx.
as for konerko going to the blue jays, i don't know about that either. i don't think they would give konekro as much as some of the other teams interested in him would give him. they let delgado (4 years - $52 Mi) go and it showed that they need a power bat in the lineup, but there is just too much competition for the jays to sign him.
