Goodbye Cairo, Hello GiambiBy
Anyone else read Chad Jennings’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yanks blog? I seriously check it as often as I check Pete Abraham’s blog. He’s a pretty reasonable dude, too. For instance, in his latest post about what to do with Shelley Duncan when Giambi comes back:
I like Cairo, but I’d rather have a huge right-handed power threat than a utility infielder who’s going to hardly play. Especially when there’s another utility infielder who’s hardly going to play already on the roster.
Bravo, Chad. Bravo.
Jason Giambi will make a rehab appearance with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees on Friday during the team’s double header against Buffalo. I haven’t heard whether he will play in both games, but it seems that he will.
According to the Yankees, Giambi will be reevaluated after Friday’s games to determine whether he remains with the Triple-A team or returns to New York.
Our team! It’s getting better!
