    I was watching (no pun intended) Brian McCann hit last night in Fenway.  (On TV, I was not there.)

    I was tired and my eyes were a little blurry.  (Nothing new on either of those fronts.)

    And, for a second or two, I thought it was Jason Giambi.  The body language in the box, the stance, and the swing, all reminded me of Giambi (as a Yankee).  Anyone else ever see this?

      I don’t remember Giambi going to left field even as often as McCann already has during Giambi’s entire time with the Yanks. I know that can’t be right, but McCann has been going the other way a decent amount of the time.

      @ Evan3457:
      Everything I am talking about is BEFORE he ever hits the ball. I do not mean they are the same hitter.

      I’ve noticed it too. I think part of it as how he tracks the ball to the catcher mitt and then, on pitches he takes, rapidly paws at the dirt with his back foot. I’ll gladly take what he’s given us over, say, the last 10 games, on both sides of the dish.

      The Atlanta Brave behind the plate for Team Cashman does have an approach that is somewhat reminiscent of the Oakland Athletic that played first base for Team Cashman from 2002-08…
