No Joy in Mudville

Rather than discuss the embarassment of the 2 games against the Mets (yesterday it was 11-2, as the mighty Yankee offense mustered 3 hits in a blowout) I'd rather focus on the positive. A-Rod will be back tomorrow against the Orioles.
But the big news is that Giambi will be getting out of his slump any day now.

How do I know this? Simple. Whilemostsluggers take extra BP, or even skip it to get back in the groove, Giambi does something, well, different.

According to Friday's Daily News:

Yankee slugger Jason Giambi wears a gold lamé, tiger-stripe thong under his uniform when he wants to break out of a slump - and he shares it with hitless teammates who want to get back on track.

"I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," he tells

Over the years, the 37-year-old All-Star has left the "golden thong" in the lockers of slumping teammates Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura and Robinson Cano.

"All of them wore it and got hits," he reports. "The thong works every time."

Yankees have the day off. I'll be back tomorrow. I'll spend the rest of the day wirebrushing and then bleaching my brain.

Go Yankees

Thongs? - This is what the evil empire has been reduce to? Thongs!!

6 games behind the Red Sox, a team littered with riches and the potential addition of a new/old gem, Bartolo colon on Wed. If he pans out, and if somehow Curt Schilling is able to pitch by the end of the year, that would mean Beckett, Dice-K, Jon Lester, Tim Wakefield, Colon, Clay Buckholz, and Schilling would all be potential starters.
