Well, i'm trying to acquire Giambi in my leagues, the buy low theory. Maybe i'm crazy
The season wasn't as bad as it might look. He went 41-107 on a bad knee, and eye infection. His average was down, but he still was 9th in al in ops, 5th in runs created, 6th in RC/27. He might not hit 340 again, and win a mvp, but i think 280-45-120 is certaintly still possible. The difference between 250 and 300 isn't as huge as you would think. It amounts to 1 extra hit every 5 games. His strikeouts increased some, but he still displayed the walks, almost a 1/1 ratio. His g/f ratio was off his norms, he hit alot more flys. Maybe he was uppercutting more? While his 250 average hurt in fantasy, his real bb numbers were still top 10 in al.
Btw, i haven't seen 1 single person bring up Sheffield? Everyone is pumping Giles, because he has Klesko/Nevin. Giambi's never been in a lineup with a powerhouse like Sheffield. Giambi/ Sheffield back to back? Nice.
