Over Giambi's checkered career in the Bronx, he has left the "golden thong" in the lockers of slumping teammates Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura, and Robinson Cano. "All of them wore it and got hits," he reports. "The thong works every time."

not just underwear, but THONG underwear, which assuming goes into the crack
Let's be precise here: they share gold lamee' tiger thong underwear. As I put it in the story on our league page...
There's watching Sex in the City, there's having sleepovers with your adult male buddies and then there's sharing a gold lamee tiger thong among friends. This is just beyond gay-scale... it doesn't even register on the mauve color wheel any more.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
So is Jason Giambi worth a flier for the power starved in deep mixed leagues? I'd say so. He's a high maintenance fantasy player as you'll always have to wonder if he'll be in the lineup, but when he does play, the power is legit. OPS or OBP leauges give him an additional value boost.
Yeah, I know he stinks, but a guy who can reliably get a HR every 15 or so ABs can be a valuable commodity if you know when to start him. I'm thinking Frank Thomas-like production.
If this is what's causing Giambi to get hot recently, I hope he wears a thong straight through 'till September.
Seriously, though, can he keep this pace up? In spite of a terrible start, he's looked better in '08 than he's looked in years, and he was tearing it up in ST. Now that the weather's warming up, are we seeing more of what's to come? Is 85-30-85-.270 an unreasonable expectation?
