Totally fanned on this last night with all the Jobamania. But that home run Jason Giambi hit gave him 386 for his career.
That’s 50th all time. He needs three more to catch Johnny Bench for 49th place. Not bad.
Yes, yes, he was a big cheating goon and the only way he’ll get to the Hall of Fame is to buy a ticket. But he’s our big cheating goon and he’s hilarious. So good for him.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 26-26 on the road. Dreadful, right? However the Angels (38-21) are the only other team in the AL not below .500. So 26-26 is actually pretty good.
Meanwhile, ESPN is reporting that the Red Sox are working on a waiver deal for Brian Giles. What they would do with him isn’t clear. But Buster Olney suggests it could be Big Papi insurance.
Back later with the lineup. Enjoy your afternoon.
