Turns out, Giambi is not having a very good year in the Bronx.
One-eigthth the way through, he's barely hitting .100, with only 5 hits. Even more impressive, only one of those hits is a single.
He's got 59 PA. Has anyone ever had that many PA in a season with only one single? Let's leave pitchers out of this one.
Turns out, Jason Giambi is on the verge of history. The record is 61 PA with only 1 single in a season, held by former shortstop Lyn Lary.
Best part of that list? Giambi used to be teammates with John Jaha, #4.
'course there's a problem with the above logic. Giambi could go 60, 70, 100, 500 PA without another single, but the moment he does, he's off the list.
My advice: take 3 more PA, Jason, and then go wash Jeff Kent's truck. My settle for futility when history is right around the corner?
