The player formerly known as the Giambi-no must hate him. [Actually, if I were the Yankees, I'd hire all the players out there with good "Bambino" puns. Like Brandon Backe-bino. And Larry Bigbie-no. And Mike Lamb-ino. And of course they need a new General Manager. Perhaps Billy Bam-Beane-o.] Five consecutive games with HR. I didn't see them all, and I don't know the distances they were hit, but the ones I saw looked like they didn't get terribly deep into Yankee Stadium's generous right field seats. It'll be interesting to see if he gets any on this upcoming roadtrip: Oakland, Seattle, Shea. I say no more homers for Tino until they return to the Bronx.
