NL only. Jeremy Giambi is now a Philly should i get him?

I would assume he would start in their pathetic outfield but you never know. If he is starting should i can J. Macias and pick him up.

This is a 12 team nl only league.

If Macias' multi-position eligibility isn't vital to you then yes, by all means. Giambi isn't a star (at least, this one isn't), but he'll be a serviceable outfielder, assuming he plays every day, as you said (I think he will). His stats so far are about as one would expect from him, although it's possible that he truly has gained a bit of pop. On the other hand, his numbers should dip slightly with the move to the NL. Where he'll bat in the Phillies' order will also be interesting.

At any rate, yes, by all means pick him up for Macias. ;-D

Rotoworld is reporting due to Giambi's poor glove play he is no better than a back up for Philly
