Giambi = Good Year?

The Most important thing you all should know in reference to Giambi:


Giambi is not even close to the .300 hitter he once was, but he still has the power...and if your leagues count OBP as mine does, don't forget that amidst all the razz and strife of his first "post-steroid" year, Giambi led the AL in OBP by a country mile.

All indications are that he will hit 5th in the lineup behind ARod & Sheffield with Matsui & Posada behind him. Now I don't think he will play more than 120 games at first but presuming he plays about a total of about 140 games (including 20-30 at DH) I think the following is a reasonable projection:

.275, 85, 36, 95, .410

Given the massive depth at first base he could be an absolute steal later in the draft or a $10 type at auction.

I think many are overlooking the injury concern Giambi brings to the table. If healthy for a full season Giambi could put up some strong numbers.

I'd be suprised if JG racks up 550 ABs this season.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
