A haiku for the just-released Jason Giambi.

with one comment

Goodbye, Jason.Tattoos, ‘roids, and booze.

You were once the best slugger.

Should go back on juice.

The Oakland A’s released veteran slugger Jason Giambi today. Billy Beane’s expensive offseason acquisition certainly didn’t have a resurgence in his return to Oakland, batting just .193 with 11 homers and 40 RBI in 83 games. Giambi recently hit the disabled list with a quadriceps injury.

With the release of Giambi and the impending release of Eric Chavez, Oakland fans must be wallowing in the memories of the glorious Moneyball days of the early 2000’s. The past few seasons have lacked magic or, more specifically (hmm, how do I say this politely?), any semblance to competitive baseball.

Perhaps Oakland should fire Billy Beane and consider bringing in someone else? The plan is not working…
