An hour later and Giambi still hasn’t swung

“Checked swing, close,” Ed Montague told a pool reporter. “I had him offering at the ball. I haven’t looked at it.”

Giambi didn’t say anything in public about the call. That’s not his style. But if you watch the replay, it wasn’t a swing.

That said, the Yankees shouldn’t be life-and-death in the 8th inning against a team that had lost 15 of its last 17 games.

The Yankees are not some great team playing poorly at this point. They’re a .500 team. They’ve been either .500, a game up or a game behind for 47 days this season.

They have the better part of four months to change that. That’s the only positive.
