I love the facial hair, and man those were some good times. But, uh, Giambi can't really hit any more. i know with Crosby and Hannahan and Davis and so forth in the lineup, Giambi doesn't really stand out. But it's kind of interesting that G seems to get a free pass. Yeah, he walks and he'll hit a home run now and then. But he plays a pretty lousy first base and he's about to be hitting .199. Would it make sense for the A's to simply cut him and put Barton there every day? You know the defense would improve tremendously, and it's hard to believe Barton wouldn't hit, I don't know, .220 but without the walks.
