Line of the Day: May 19th, 2011

1B Jason Giambi of the Colorado Rockies homered three times in a game for the first time in his career and drove in all seven runs in the Rockies 7-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. It was his 39th career multi-homer game and the seven RBI tied a career high.

Line: 5 AB, 3 R, 3 H, 7 RBI; 3 HR

My fantasy perspective: Giambi was 3-for-26 (.115) before this game in a very limited role, so he hasn't been fantasy relevant. The Rockies will have some interleague games where Giambi will get to DH or a spot start at first base now and again but really doesn't deserve to be rostered unless Todd Helton goes down with an injury.

  1. Agreed. About as relevant as Babe Ruth's three homer game for the Boston Braves.
