He walks a lot so he won't have as many official at bats to bring your average down, but he hasn't hit for average in years.
agreed. in fact i was just about to post that asking this particular question is like asking why is manny better than dunn since both will hit you 40+ dingers. other production stats aside anyways. its a bit of an extreme example, but in the same vein.
depending on league size though, i wouldn't mind starting giambi. i'd prefer to start morneau, but if i had a choice between morneau and a better player, i would just take the better player at that point in teh draft and pick up giambi later to play 1b for me. nothing wrong with that at all.
