• Beware The Sounds Of Spring

    Posted by on February 27th, 2008 · Comments (2)

    Before we get too amped up over any quotes that come out of the Yankees camp today as a result of their intersquad game, let’s remember this diddy from Jason Giambi (this time last year):

    In the early part of camp [Matt] DeSalvo, 26, opened eyes in the bullpen and in batting practice. “I was shocked, that’s how filthy he was,” Jason Giambi said.

    Damon Oppenheimer can rest easy as Jason Giambi is no threat in terms of taking his job.

      Teammates tend not to insult each other. So it’s not realistic to think Giambi would have said “he sucks,” “he has no velocity,” “he has no out pitch.” Spring training reports are always overblown, but you have to, at the minimum, look to reporters for even a semi-objective view of things.

      Or DeSalvo really could’ve been that good on that day. It happens.
