When I turned my phone on this morning I recieved the below email and print screen from a rather excitable Base. Of course he was. He was about to get burned by the hometown Red Sox who were two outs away from taking his money on Happy Ubaldo Jimenez Day, but he was saved by none other than Jason Giambi. Giambino hit a TOWERING 2 run walk- off home run to beat the Nation in the ninth and during the process removing two of Jonathan Papelbon’s fingers. Forgot the US World Cup win, Wimbledon Marathon Match or the US Open this has to be the best sporting moment this Month if not the year.
This puts Jason 2 behind Darrel Evans for 43rd on the all time home run list and 350 HRs behind Barry Bonds. The chase continues.
