Giambi Abuses Yankees

From Rotoworld

Jason Giambi was diagnosed with "parasites" and isn't in the lineup for tonight's game against the Red Sox.

I can only assume he's talking about his teamates :-D

hope it's nothing serious. I don't care if he sits a while... just hope it's nothing that requires surgery...

i guess his momma never told him to wash his hands before eating... or maybe he just didn't listen :-D

here's what I find funny about the whole situation

again, from rotoworld:
When asked specifically what the doctor told him, the first baseman said he didn't remember. Giambi did say he began taking a new set of antibiotics Tuesday and that a doctor told him he should feel better within a couple of days


seriously, how many times have you "forgotten" what your doctor told you what was wrong with you...

Seriously, how many times have YOU told complete strangers what your doctor said was wrong with YOU?

oh yeah.
you're right, but I would expect him to say something like "I have the flu" or "it's just a bug," but "I forgot" just seems, well, weird.

He's probably embarrased to admit he has crabs. 8-o

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
