Jason Giambi

First- The Dodgers and Brewers offered Trevor Hoffman a deal.

Second- The Giants and Dodgers could back off Manny. So then where would Manny go? I have no clue.
Jason Giambi the big ‘roid user signed with the Oakland A’s today. He inked a one year, $4 million deal, while the A’s have a $6.5 million dollar option for 2010, with a $1.25 million dollar buyout. He can earn up to $500,000 each year in bonuses and $250,000 for 525 and 550 plate appearances. Giambi won the MVP in 2000 while playing for the A’s. Giambi could play first or D.H. If he played first then Daric Barton would be benched. If he played D.H. then Jack Cust, who led the A’s in RBI’s and homers last year, would either be moved to left or sit on the bench. Cust also had 197 strike outs last season. Cust will probably move to left then Travis Buck would be benched. There is the option of trading Cust. Giambi hit 32 home runs, 96 RBI’s, stole two bases,and had a .247 batting average last season for the New York Yankees. Giambi lost a lot of money. Last season he got paid $23,428,571. Giambi has one issue, unlike say Milton Bradley, his lucky, golden, thong. Don’t want to go into detail about that.

    As much as I would like to see Manny out of the NL west if the Giants did offer him a three year deal and he doesn’t take it then I can see Boras going back to the Dodgers and inking something to bring fans in.Frankly this guy just needs to go somewhere so I can stop seeing his face for awhile.

    Wow Giambi back to the A’s. I wonder where Hoffman is going to end up–should be interesting
    Ah, Manny, Manny, Manny, Manny! It’s all over the Hot Stove Report on MLB Network. Where is he going to go if not the NL West? Is there anyone interested? Or is Manny about to learn a harsh life lesson? Good job Scot Boras! Way to leave your clients without homes!
