I forgot to comment on this last Saturday, when it was in the paper and on the internet that the A's had gotten rid of Jason Giambi. I had said when he was signed that if he hit 30 HR's and drove in 90 runs it would have been a good pickup for a year. Sadly, Jason played like a bum and was hurt most of the season. Its a shame it cost the A's $5 million to figure this out. I think Jason is finished as a player, I'd be shocked if someone picked him up for the rest of the season or if he made a 25 man roster next season.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
