Actually, what I meant, though, was that I didn't see the Yankees offering arbitration to either player with the possibility they'd accept. Definitely not Giambi. Perhaps Abreu, but I still don't think it's likely.
I think definitely Abreu will be offered. Giambi, I doubt it too. I think he's relegated to one year deals with whoever needs a DH a la Frank Thomas the last couple years. But he'll get work for sure. But he is lefty, and he's clearly got power left. So you never know.
Thomas got a three year deal after a year similar to Giambi's.
Two years with a vesting option. If you want to be exact.
I think Giambi is someone the Jays might look at this offseason (though I'm hoping they are willing to spend the money to go after Manny or Bradley).
