Granted, his BA is streaky, but the other numbers he puts up really aren't which more than make up for his inconsistant BA.

Ever since Giambi missed most of the 2004 season due to complications from admitted steroid and HGH abuse, his home runs have also been streaky. He'll go on tears will he'll homer is just about every other game, but then he'll go on multiple 3-week long homerless droughts.

Taken in context with the fact that his power was so depleted in the first half of the 2005 season (5 HR in first 187 AB) that the Yankees wanted to send him to the minors, it's suspicious that Giambi was suddenly able to hit 11 HR in his next 50 AB (after the threat of the Yankes demoting him to the minors came out).

In my 10-team league, I got him in Round 15 (# 147 overall). In my 12-team league, somebody else got him in Round 10 (# 119 overall).

I drafted him in the 10th round in a 10-team league... I couldn't believe that no one else picked him up, so I thought that I had to do it. Still, that's really late for him IMO considering the lineup that he's in. I bench him vs. lefties though I'm not so sure that I should considering that he's been doing pretty well...

My best pickup by far has to be Russell Martin for my last pick in the 17th round! ;-D

he's an absolute LOCK for 30 dingers. He's capable of 40 with 500+ ABs.
