Rockies sign Jason Giambi
ESPN.com news services / 8-23-09

Looking for a veteran bat to help their playoff push, the Colorado Rockies have agreed to a deal with Jason Giambi, according to multiple reports.

Giambi was released by the Oakland Athletics earlier this month after hitting just .193 with 11 home runs and 40 RBIs in 83 games. He reportedly will join Triple-A Colorado Springs to get at-bats and then report to the Rockies on Sept. 1 when rosters are expanded.

"Jason is 100 percent healthy and definitely plans to continue playing," his agent Arn Tellem said in an e-mail to The Associated Press when Giambi was released. "He is confident he'll be able to contribute to a team down the stretch."

Giambi had been on the disabled list since July 20 with a strained right quadriceps muscle when he was released by Oakland.

1. I think someone doesn't know when it's time to retire...
...I just hope Jason is paying the Rockies, and not vice-versa.

3. At least Jason sort of admitted it without all the hemming and hawing...
...and since he has been released from the clutches of Satan, I don't dislike him so much.

4. He's going to be only a pinch hitter.
And I don't understand why, because Seth Smith is the best pinch hitter in the NL now.

5. Seth who?
I guess you forgot about Juan Pierre.

6. Not just the NL, but the Majors! My mistake.
From ESPN. Read it and weep. And don't question my stats again, Dodger Dork!
