Giambi Signed by the Indians

Jason Giambi has signed a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians according to multiple sources.  The deal, if Giambi makes the team, is worth $750,000.

Giambi was making $1M with the Rockies last season and was in the running for the Rockies manager job that eventually went to Walt Weiss.  The team offered him the spot of Hitting Coach, but he turned it down.

The Rockies seem to have a direct conduit to/from the Indians with Jimenez, Spilborghs, Rogers, White and of course Pomeranz being just a few coming and going between the two teams in the last couple of years.

JT totally misused a lot of players. Only good move the Rox made the entire year was replacing him.

Rare occasion where I have to agree with Woody Paige in the DP this morning. He seems legitimately mystified by the exile and apparent return, powers wholly intact, of Dan O’Dowd. In retrospect, it looks to me like the Geivett thing was pure window dressing — a little misdirection to the fans and media to make it look like real changes were on the way, when in reality Geivett had one job and one job only: make life so miserable… Read more »

Well Woody has to be right a few times in his life. Same as a broken clock. It’s right twice a day. Rockies did absolutely nothing to improve the team this year or in the future. Denver has four “major league” teams and only 2 of them are trying to win. Broncos and Nuggets try to put a good product on the field or the floor. The Kroenke’s also own the Avalanche but are El Cheapo with them. (I don’t… Read more »

Bill, I love that about “righty” Jorge de la Rosa. And SI and the other old guard publications always make fun of bloggers in their mom’s basements pretending to be experts on stuff. I’ve basically stopped reading publications like that except for the occasional long-form, well-researched journalism piece. And those are few and far between. Good comment on the Nuggets and Broncos too. In recent years we’ve seen both of them unafraid to make major changes — in the case… Read more »
