    What's The Latest News On Giambi?

    I haven't heard a word about him, except the daily listing of the DL by Suzyn Waldman. Is his injury improving at all? Does it look like he will be out the rest of the year? What about his meeting with the commissioner? Has a date been set for it? Right now it's like he's in Camp Pavano - invisible.

    In a protective boot, no baseball action. Very likely he's done for the year... That's about all I know...

    Actually, he had the boot removed about a week ago. He was going to have another scan done this week, but I haven't heard how it came out if, in fact, he's done it yet.

    This is the latest I've seen, from Yankees.com. The story is dated June 29.

    Small steps: Jason Giambi made a brief appearance at Yankee Stadium prior to Friday's game, and the slugger is set to have another scan next week to determine how quickly he is recovering from a partially torn plantar fascia in his left heel.

    Giambi had been wearing a protective boot on his left foot since May 31, but he said that he had it removed on Monday. There is no timetable for Giambi's return, and The Associated Press reported that he could miss the rest of the season.

    Heal well, Jason. Hope you'll get to help us out later in the season!

    The Yankees could certainly use his power.

    From Yankees.com today:

    Jason Giambi (torn left plantar fascia) has been removed from a walking boot, but he is still out indefinitely.

    He's driving a cab in Queens to pass the time until his foot heals.

    My aunt and I are always on the phone talking about the Yankees and we both badly miss him. Comeback, JG. Get better and comeback!

    New York DH Jason Giambi took batting practice for the first time since hurting his left foot and hopes to rejoin the Yankees by early next month. He took 20 swings in a batting cage at the team's spring training complex in Tampa, Fla., and could start hitting on the field in the next few days.

    Yeah, I posted that in the "Injury Update Thread" ... I forgot about this one.

    http://forums.nyyfans.com/showpost.p...&postcount=178

    That source added that Giambi "feels no pain. He is also running in the outfield and playing catch, and hopes to rejoin the Yankees by early August."

    Great news on Jason! We could always use a great OBP guy with a power bat in our lineup! I guess if he comes back, Duncan will get sent back down. Oh well.

    I think Duncan can stay and have a Ruben Sierra type role with us.

    Aren't they always concerned that a (relative) youngster doesn't make a good bench player? (see Melky discussions)

    Re: What's The Latest News On Giambi?

    Melky was 21, Duncan is 28

    I hope the best for the young man. But 3 games are such a small sample. I guess we'll see. It's fun finding out what he's made of, though.

    It's funny everytime I see him, I see a (much) powerful Phelps. Another all or nothing type hitter who's gonna K a lot. Oh well, we'll see.

    Not that it really matters, but Peter said he took 38 swings, not 20.

    http://yankees.lohudblogs.com/2007/0...ks-for-giambi/
    Meanwhile, Jason Giambi took batting practice on the field today in Tampa. Accoring to the Associated Press, he took 38 cuts and said he felt fine.

    No word on when The Big G will commence rehab games. They probably need to alert the police in Trenton and Scranton first.

    "We understand that John Henry must be embarrassed, frustrated and disappointed by his failure in this transaction. Unlike the Yankees, he chose not to go the extra distance for his fans in Boston. It is understandable, but wrong that he would try to deflect the accountability for his mistakes on to others and to a system for which he voted in favor. It is time to get on with life and forget the sour grapes."

    Re: What's The Latest News On Giambi?

    It's good to hear Giambi is healing up well, but do we really want him back in the lineup when we've been doing so well without him? I like Giambi, so don't think I am bashing him or forgetting what he's done for us throughout the past few years. I just don't know if him being the DH after not playing for so long will help us more than it'll hurt us the rest of the season.

    I agree, Duncan will be no superstar or nothing (at least that what I think based on the small sample size), he will K A LOT but I think he can provide us with what Ruben did in 2003-2005.
