Spent some time with Ian Kennedy this morning and he was telling me about his house in Henderson, Nev., right outside of Las Vegas.
Jason Giambi lives in Las Vegas, so I asked IPK whether he had hung out with the Big G this winter.
Turns out he didn’t. But he ran into a friend of Giambi’s who informed him that Jason has been working hard since November. The Big G has dropped a lot of weight, has been hitting nearly every day and will show up next week in great shape.
In other news, the Journal News has learned that Giambi is in the final year of his contract.
Whatever the motive, a healthy Giambi could be a force for the Yankees hitting fifth or sixth.
