You don't believe that they pull Giambi for a hack do you? Sure, if NY has a lead in the 9th, i could see pulling Giambi, for say Snow. But pulling a offensive force for a glove at 1b, has no merit, unless you have a lead late. The greater amount of offensive production, way overvalues any gain at defense at 1b. The defensive replacement would have to be nearly Giambis equal on offense. I know Giambi is nimble, but in fairness, he only had 4 errors, and was over league fielding % at 1b .995 to .993.
