giambi's coming back

Postby Stand Pat » Tue Aug 10, 2004 6:28 pm

Rotoworld:
Jason Giambi has been given clearance to resume playing. He'll begin rehabbing with Single-A Tampa.
The Yankees haven't set a timetable for his return, but depending on how his body reacts over the next few days, he could be back soon, definitely before the end of the month.


I must say this is promising news after having already resigned myself to the possibility that he would be a total waste on the year. Here's praying for a hot return.

He's a total waste for this year fantasy wise as it is. Even if he gets back sometime by next week he has been out of the loop for awhile now. Most of us have found decent replacements and I'm more confident sticking with Morneau than I am gambling on Giambi. Maybe next year. :-/

I picked up Giambi last week... I'm trying to dump him for anything now, because I don't think he'll contribute, but I have a huge hole at SS. If I can get a top 10 shortstop, I'm getting rid of him.

I doubt he'll hold up. (But if he does, I'd be hard pressed to fit him into my lineup. I have Konerko and Helton at 1b and utility.)
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Didn't Jason just spend a month not eating? I don't know if you guys know this, but that can really sap your stamina and strength. Combined with his dimished BA over the last few years . . . well, I don't have high hopes for Giambi. Or any hopes, really.

Yeah I dropped his butt a while back now. No looking back now. Morneau is filling in nicely. ;-D
