Serious question about Jason Giambi's abilities

What is wrong with this guy? I really am floored by his total loss of hitting. He's really killing me.

you can only hope he gets traded.. you know he's in a good lineup like the yanks but somehow he's just not hitting. maybe too much pressure? he's still a good .400 OBP kinda guy but he's bat is really lacking. Yeah lack of steroids was probably why...

Remember McGwire got his started on roids back when they were teammates in oakland.
Got Johan?

me gonna stay shut 'bout roids. :-X

two changes in the past years are responsible..

Yankee stadium and the traditional extreme left-handed oull/power hitter shift that teams play against him nowadays without skipping a heartbeat.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

With all due respect, could you please post a link to your source with this insinuation/accusation?

Thanks.

There are plenty of links expressing the same thing the other guy expressed, his opinion. He's free to do that. So take your 185 million dollar pay roll and pretend like there's parity in baseball, especially if you get Randy Johnson.
