Athletics release Giambi

The Athletics released Jason Giambi today. The Big G was at .193/.332/.364 over 83 games and was on the disabled list.

Don’t be surprised if somebody picks him up. For the prorated minimum, it’ll be worth it to somebody to see if Giambi has anything left. It likely won’t be the Yankees, which is too bad because he would wear out right field at the Pony League park in the Bronx.

If he goes unwanted, Giambi will have a good time wherever he is. He always does.

Meanwhile, kudos to the Red Sox. They’re taking early BP on the field right now. You don’t often see that before the second game of a series.
