It’s hot outside. But, it’s not nearly as hot as Jason Giambi is with the bat. And, Giambi’s doing it against all kinds of pitching. If I’m doing my math correctly, it appears that Jason Giambi has fashioned an OBP of .410 and a SLG % of .443 in his last 61 PA against “power” pitchers.
Well, if you’re going to get something wrong, you might as well jump in with both feet, right?
Somehow, some way, Jason Giambi has made an adjustment this season and it’s been great for him in the past month. What’s next?
According to the “Hot Zones” data on FOX Sports, Giambi is really making hay on pitches that are down and away – see below:
This data is not top secret. I would have to think that pitchers will (or should) start busting Giambi with inside pitches. Jason has not been able to handle those yet – as the stats show.
Will Jason then make another adjustment? Don’t look to me for an answer. I was already wrong on Giambi once this season. Clearly, when it comes to “The Big G,” I haven’t got a clue.
