Late update on this, but Giambino is rolling.  Jason Giambi pinch hitting in the 9th, hit his 2nd walk off home run of the season last night to help Colorado win their 10th consecutive game.

415th of his career 43rd All time and 347 behind *Barry Bonds*

I blogged yesterday about my long term baseball prop bet and had a slight dig on Giambino for not homering since May.  Well I was wrong, his last long ball was June 23rd versus the Red Sox.  He made up for it today and belted his 5th home run of the season and his 414th career home run tying him for 43rd on the all time list with Darrell Evans and 348 HRs behind *Barry Bonds*

Savor it, could be one Giambino’s last trots around the bases.

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.

I need to set a player alert for Jason Giambi to my BlackBerry, because on Sunday he hit his second dinger of the season in Kansas City, that’s two in the month of May.  He is now 44th on the Career Home Run Leaders list, just 3 behind Darrell Evans for 43rd position, but more importantly 351 Home Runs behind Barry Bonds.  It’s marathon not a sprint.

An incredible back and forth game tonight in the feeble Red Sox – Yankees rivalry.  The games ends at the usual four hour mark with Marcus Thames sitting on a Jonathan Papelbon fastball and hitting a walk off home run. The whole thing is ruined when ARod doesn’t celebrate with the team and acts like a complete weirdo because he knows the camera will be on home plate.  I can’t stand this guy.  If I was Brian Cashman I would trade ARod to the Rockies for Jason Giambi straight up and eat ARods $30 mil a year salary.

oh, and somehow Javier Vazquez got the win by throwing 4 pitches, amazing

The Great Giambino ripped his first home run this season in the Rockies 6-2 win over the Washington Nationals.  This is the big lefty’s 410th round tripper of his career putting him 4 behind Vladimir Guerrero and Darrell Evans for 42nd on the all time home run list and 352 HRs behind Barry Bonds for the most all-time.

The chase is on.

“Party like a rock star, hammer like a porn star, and hit like an All-Star.”

Jason Giambi came up with this quote back in the day when he was with the Oakland A’s, that is why I am inviting him to my birthday party.  I was talking to Big Mick about doing a blow out party for myself and inviting Axl Rose, the coolest human on the planet.  Since Axl is a recluse, there is no way in hell he’d come and if he did I would have to probably pay a couple million dollar appearance fee.  So, an even better idea is to invite the great Giambino.  The former MVP is one of my all time favorite Yankees, I’d invite Don Mattingly (who is my favorite player) but he won’t party like Jason.  Giambi is a down to earth, easy-going guy who loves his fans and partying, I think he would actually show up.  As you can see in the YouTube clip, he’s just hanging out with his fans, swarmed by hot chicks and loving every minute of it.  I read an article that he owns  a private plane so I won’t have to fly him out, I’ll just have to put him up at a local hotel.  I think this could happen, actually I am like 99% sure this going to happen.  I will have to be persistent, but I think this plan is nuts enough and Giambi is cool enough that it can. I have a few months to arrange this and I plan on getting the ball rolling soon by sending him an invitation.  I’ll keep everyone posted when I hear back from him.

P.S. My party is going to be just like this, if you don’t think this looks fun then you are a loser
