Jason Giambi is somehow the 5th most powerful sports figure in New York

The New York Daily News just published their list of the 50 Most Powerful People in New York Sports.  The Top 5 includes MSG emperor James Dolan, Roger Goodell, Derek Jeter, Giants CEO John Mara, and Hal Steinbrenner.  It’s an interesting listicle combining athletes and executives from the local and national sports scene, even if it is impossible to really quantify. But the real...

Second Thoughts Game #91: Yankees 3, Indians 9

It wasn't quite as dramatic as Jason Giambi sending Progressive Field into a frenzy with a walk-off home run last September, but the RBI triple laced down the right field line by Asdrubal Cabrera which ended up clearing the bases definitely ignited a certain amount of euphoria in downtown Cleveland on Thursday night as the once-hapless Tribe offense roared back to life to stun...

Did Brian McCann just have his Giambi moment as a Yankee?

May 17, 2002, was a Friday night when Mustang, Moose and I cruised bar-to-bar across Syracuse, monitoring the Yankees on overhead TVs. They played the Twins, THE power of the AL Central, with Torii Hunter in CF and an emerging DH named David Ortiz. The Twinkies cuffed around Mike Mussina and devoured our bullpen - Mariano pitched two - and the game was tied after nine. In the 14th...

Jason Giambi expected back sooner than later

Having suffered a non-displaced rib fracture in spring training, it appears that Tribe designated hitter (and late-season hero) Jason Giambi is now able swing a bat without experiencing any pain. Papa Giambi is looking to start the upcoming 2014 regular season on the disabled list, but it appears that he will be able to take a hack at southpaws before too long. It’ll be tough to...

Animated: Giambi’s hustling head-first slide

The highlight from a night where the Indians jack homers out of the park all night long was not the long ball. At least not for me. The highlight of the night was watching a presumably arthritic 42-year-old Jason Giambi playing baseball with the intensity and heart of a 12-year-old who only knows how to play one speed. It might be dumb to slide into first base, but I kind of respect...

Jason Giambi close to minor league deal with Indians

The Cleveland Indians may be adding yet another veteran presence to their roster for the 2013 season. Jason Giambi is set to be the next player added to the Indians list of invitees to spring training. Giambi spent the last handful of seasons with Colorado. Last season he hit just .225/.372/.303 with a home run and eight RBI in 113 trips to the plate. If signed by the Indians, Giambi...
