|Baseball Fever American League Oakland Athletics PDA View Full Version : TO SLIDE OR NOT TO SLIDE ? VELCROHIDE 10-19-2001, 12:14 PM [updated:LAST EDITED ON Oct-19-01 AT 01:20 PM (EST)]On the day after I heard Jim Rome rip into Jeremy Giambi for not sliding. Saying that on plays of that nature "if you don't slide, you're out!" Reiterating, "Why give the umpire a chance to make the wrong call? If you slide there would be no doubt." |
Then later, on the SportsLeader, I hear HallofFame NBA player, Rick Barry say that he watched the play over and over and in his mind, if Giambi slides he slides right into the tag.
Should Jeremy Giambi have slid on the Derek Jeter relay home to Jorge Posada that kept the game at 1-0, which ended up being the final score?
In my opinion Barry's stance shows far more brass than Rome's beliefs.
While it is usually the accepted belief that if a runner slides he removes all doubt from the umpire's mind to make the call, there are exceptions to the rule. Especially since Posada DID NOT TAG GIAMBI. He missed Jeremy. Really wasn't that close. Judging by Posada's proximity to the plate and where Giambi was how was it physically possible for Posada, a.k.a. Plasticman, to reach Giambi for the tag? Jeremy, as Barry suggested, made the right move because he was not tagged. Sliding would have made it an easier play for Plasticman, ahem, Posada.
Why didn't the home plate umpire ask his cohorts for some assistance? Could there be a bigger play in a game of what was an exciting, intesified series? Why allow a "guess" call to stand?

MATCHUPS Giambi hits 2 HRs as Yanks top Angels in 11 It was the first time brothers homered for the same team in one game since Aug. 11, 2001, when Jason and Jeremy Giambi connected for Oakland against the Yankees, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. "It doesn't matter right now," Jose Molina said. "We lose." Normally Bengie's backup at catcher, Jose Molina made his first career start at first base to give Erstad a rest with Johnson on the mound. Their other brother, Yadier, is the regular catcher for the Cardinals. Jason Giambi connected in the second inning off Bootcheck and the seventh against Esteban Yan, giving the streaking slugger three homers in four at-bats. Giambi's two-run shot in the eighth Saturday began New York's comeback in another 8-7 victory. Giambi hit a major league-best 14 homers in July, the most in a month by a Yankees player since Mickey Mantle hit 14 in July 1961. Roger Maris had 13 that month, too. "That's the exciting part about being a Yankee," Giambi said. "Whenever you do anything special, you're joining Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, DiMaggio. That's one of the reasons I came here."|

This season, Giambi is getting more help with the offensive load, particularly from his younger brother Jeremy, the team's second-leading hitter. The Brothers Giambi are in position to become only the second set of brothers to finish 1-2 on the same team in batting average in a single season. The Hall of Fame Waners, Paul and Lloyd, accomplished the feat four times with the Pirates of the 1920s and '30s. It was Paul first, Lloyd second each time.

Stringy-haired Jason Giambi bashed his way to the 2000 American League Most Valuable Player Award, clubbing 43 homers, hitting .333, and driving in 137 runs. A few years later he cleaned up his act, at least outwardly, signing with the New York Yankees for more than $100 million. After a solid debut in the Bronx, Giambi suffered injuries normally associated with steroid use, and ultimately, after the 2004 season, he admitted that he had used the banned substance. His reputation and accomplishments besmirched, Giambi figured to be one of the marquee casualties of baseball's latest drug scandal.

December 15, 2002 The Red Sox have been looking for a first baseman this offseason, and efforts to pry Erubiel Durazo from the Diamondbacks ended when he was traded to the Athletics on Sunday. Boston quickly recovered, however, getting Jeremy Giambi from the Phillies later in the day for righthander Josh Hancock. The Red Sox now can match the Yankees with a Giambi of their own at first base, though Jeremy isn't in his older brother Jason's class. His addition makes it likely that Boston will nontender incumbent Brian Daubach, coming off a .266-20-78 performance in 137 games, rather than offer him a 2003 contract. Baseball America
