Giambi out of his slump?

Postby jebatzel » Wed Apr 23, 2003 6:35 pm

Paul Konernko and Jason Giambi are my first base men on my team.

Neither of them are off to a hot start, so its hard to pick who to start every day.

I would just start Giambit, but the last 2 weeks he has killed my lineup's average and OBP

last night he was 2 fo 5 with 2 rbi and his first stollen base. Paul was 1 for 4 with an rbi, so not a total loss.

Giambi was 0 for 5 the day before and 1 for 5 with 3 run homerun the day before that.

wouldn't be so bad if Giambi was my only choice, but Paul can hit the ball good too.

Jason was my first pick of the draft and Paul I got in the 12th round, thought I was getting a steal.

In terms of fantasy production, Giambi is slumping but in real life he's not really slumping, he's getting good at-bats and taking walks, which are indicators of a good hitter. Give it time. How can debate between your 1st pick and your 12th pick with only one slot available? JAM THAT FIRST ROUNDER IN THERE AND GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH!

Paul is onlye 1 for 2 with a single so far.

My Atlanta Braves are doing good today.

Giles and Sheffield hit back to back homeruns.

Only had one homerun before today.
