Jason Giambi was once one of the most feared sluggers in the game, but now is a shell of his former self. However, he's experiencing a bit of a renaissance over the last week. The 40 year old 1B/PH is only batting .231 this season playing for the Colorado Rockies, but that average isn't anything close to the entire story. Of his 9 hits, Giambi has clubbed 6 homeruns and collected 13 RBI. His OPS is an outstanding 1.026, and 5 of those longballs have come in the past 5 games (3 of them in the same game against my beloved Phillies last week). Is this the return of the Giambino?
For his career, Giambi has hit 421 homeruns over 17 season with the Athletics, Yankees, and Rockies. He's a former MVP and 5 time All-Star with a .929 OPS. If not for his involvement with PEDs back in the day, we might be looking at possible future Hall-of-Famer.
