I don’t see this happening. But Jason Giambi still has hopes of remaining with the Yankees. If the Yankees make no additions to the offense, The Big G is hoping to slide in the back door as a first baseman and designated hitter.
TBG plans to keep his apartment in New York and might agree to stay with the Yankees if the deal is right.
Nick Swisher’s versatility is such that the Yankees could use a group of players (Swisher, Giambi, Xavier Nady, Hideki Matsui, Johnny Damon) at first base, left field, right field and DH. You’d have five players for four spots in the lineup, meaning Joe Girardi could keep his troops fresh and always have a good bat on the bench.
That said, Giambi would be a good fit with the Rays, Jays, Athletics, Orioles or Angels as well.
Meanwhile, look for Kyle Farnsworth to sign with the Kansas City Royals.
