Jason Giambi looks like the male lead in Naughty Nurses, Volume 2 with that new mustache of his.
But The Big G isn’t shaving any time soon. He’s 10 of 19 with six runs scored, four RBI and four extra-base hits in the last six games. His batting average has gone from .181 to .234.
“They’re starting to fall a little bit,” Giambi said. “I think a lot of that has to do with Kevin Long, Girardi and my teammates staying positive with me. It can be frustrating. It’s human nature to get frustrated when you do things right and you don’t get much for it. But they didn’t let me get frustrated.”
And the mustache?
“The ‘stache is going to be here for a while,” he said.
Here’s what Ichiro told the Seattle writers yesterday:
“Playing on this team and seeing what is happening around me, I feel that something is beginning to fall apart. But, if I was not in this situation, and I was objectively watching what just happened this week, I would probably be drinking a lot of beers and booing.”
