Let's compare the cold, hard stats:
- Giambi: .257 AVG, 18 HR, 54 RBI, 45 Runs, 44 BBs, 47 Ks, .534 SLG, .394 OBP
- Longoria: .281 AVG, 16 HRs, 53 RBIs, 44 Runs, 33 BBs, 76 Ks, .527 SLG, .352 OBP
While Giambi is 24 points below Longoria in average, he's beating him in every other category. He also has multiple game winning hits for the Yankees this season and he has pretty much been the team's most valuable player this season.
I have no doubt that Longoria defeated Giambi in the final All-Star fan voting because Giambi admitted that he used steroid and human growth hormone in the past. (and also because some girls voted for him because they thought he was related to Eva.)
The simple fact that Giambi didn't lie about his drug usage to the grand jury (like Bonds did), admitted to the NY media that he used it and has asked for forgiveness to the public should have been enough for people to forgive his mistakes.
Who among us hasn't made mistakes?
And who among us didn't Support the Stache...? (you hairless lip freaks)...

My pal TOSM and I played really well in a shotgun best ball tournament and turned in a scorecard of 77 over 18 holes. We didn't win any prizes, but that score is pretty respectable in my book!
We also spent a fair amount of time on the course talking about our new endeavor...I won't share details until it's firmed up, but I will tell you that TOSM is an old friend of mine from back in the day. We met in the summer of 94 when we both attended Jerry Izenberg's summer Sportswriting Camp ....
Yes, we're both huge dorks.
More to come on our endeavor later on...are you salivating in anticipation to hear about our future dork endeavor?
Also, after golf, we drove up to Mo-town to play poker and I ended up winning $112. So, it turned out to be a pretty super sweet day.

My client held its 9th open house in two weeks this past Monday. During the 9 different open houses, I was yelled at, accidentally spit on, screamed at, beraded, stared down and chewed out on multiple occasions. And I'm exhausted! There's a 10th planned in mid July and another 4 planned sometime in early August. I should just quit already. ...
The Yankees sure are streaky. They scored more runs in one inning last night (9) than they had in the past 4 games combined. That's crazy. ...
Damn you Smelmooo for leading on your loyal readers for days on end with the "secret" that you were on vacation. That's just plain wrong! ...
After getting my moonroof smashed in a few weeks ago by a flying rock, I'm now terrified to open up the moonroof - even on a nice day - for fear of getting smashed in the head by another flying projectile. ...
