Jason Giambi and David Ortiz this season: 5 of 60, 12 strikeouts, two home runs.
Alberto Gonzalez looks a lot more comfortable at the plate this season than he did last September. I know it’s only three games but he’s 3 for 8, two doubles, two sacrifices and only one strikeout.
Jose Molina has hit safely in all seven games he has started. He’s 5 for 13 with four doubles on the road trip.
Hideki Matsui has hit safely in 9 of the 11 games.
If you’re interested, I’m scheduled to do an ESPN News spot at 1:50 p.m.
