Giambi might have been able to fetch a slightly more fruitful salary on the open market after slugging 13 home runs and tallying 32 RBI in just 131 at-bats this season, but he’s comfortable out in Colorado and seems to have embraced his part-time role behind starting first baseman Todd Helton.
Giambi has earned over $131 million in his 17-year major league career. We’re guessing that money alone no longer drives his decisions.
