…. Comeback kid

Jason Giambi (my pre-season pick for Comeback Player of the Year) is currently leading the American League in on-base percentage (.437), and has something like 8 home runs since the All Star break. David Pinto thinks the Yankees ought to trade him for some pitching. I think he’s hit the nail on the head, Branch Rickey style. Trade somebody when they’re at their most desirable, instead of waiting until they begin their decline.

Giambi could hardly be hotter, and the Yankees desperately need pitching. The Padres, Dodgers, Indians, and even the Mets could use some power in their lineups. Even if they have to take on some of his salary, they could win a World Series with the right deal. As hot as he’s been, without him, they’d still have an outstanding offense, and their ERA is about the same as the Giants. Ouch.
