I feel real great about the fact that he went 1/9 at Triple-A. ;-7 Somehow I get the feeling that he won't be much of a factor to start given the limited number of AB's he's had in the minors. Looks like Tuesday or Wednesday as the day he gets activated.

MOOSIC, Pa. (AP) -Jason Giambi's rehab stint with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre ended with an 0-for-3 night Sunday.

After the game, Giambi said he will join his New York Yankees teammates Monday in Toronto, but that he wasn't sure when he would be activated.

"Its exciting for me to get the opportunity,'' Giambi said. "The injury healed a lot faster than we all thought. I'll just go up there, and the team's playing great, so the biggest thing is to just go up there and be a part of it.''

Giambi tore tissue in his foot May 30 and started his rehab last weekend at Class-A Tampa, where he played four games. He played four more with the Red Barons, going hitless after a solo home run in his first at-bat.

On Sunday, Giambi started at first base, struck out once and walked once. He was also charged with an error when he misplayed a sacrifice bunt attempt. ... ambi.0176/

What is this thing you people refer to as "bunting"?

Giambi's K/AB rate is 20.2% for his career. 23.7% last season.

Betemit's rate is 27.3% for his career and 31.4% this season.

Betemit also doesn't steal bases, so I'm not sure where your coming from with that.

And I love Melky and all, but Giambi's a better hitter. But I don't think he's in any danger of losing playing time. Giambi should be taking at bats from Johnny Damon not Melky.
