The Yankees werent ABOUT to void his contract, they COULDNT. now that we've got that straight, if you followed the yankees daily, you could almost feel that he was creeping back. mattingly told torre a week before giambi went on his tear that he was close. at the beginning of the season his swing and timing were completely off. a year away from the game iwll do that. he still had a great eye at the plate. id rather believe he made back wi/o the juice.
i think giambi will put up sweet numbers next season. but itd be risky to draft him in a H2H format. he's a very hot/cold player. but in roto .280 30 80+ wont kill you right? rbis will prbly depend on where he hits in the lineup.
