It takes muscles to hit the ball far....it takes skill to be a good player. Giambi has muscles.
Muscle hits 95 mph moving baseballs these days 450 feet? wow
Yes. Blind squirrels find nuts, too.
Well, this blind squirrel is using his nose pretty well the last few days. Anyone who has actually watched the games could tell you this wasn't just luck. He's seeing the ball very well right now. He's been hitting the ball pretty hard. Other than the homerun, he's also had a few doubles off the wall the past few days. Will it last? Who knows... To imply he just had one lucky homerun shot shows that you haven't been watching though.
I don't expect much from Giambi the rest of the year, but it's pickups that you can get cheaply and have high upside that can make or break a fantasy season. Usually they won't hurt you much because you didn't give much to get them and if they come through, they can make your entire season...pretty low risk (due to the price) and potential (even if not likely) reward.
