DAN: Slump Busting
By Dan O'Donnell
Major Leaguers will go to incredible lengths to break out of hitting droughts, from shaving facial hair to growing facial hair to shacking up with women with facial hair, but Jason Giambi may have the most unusual slump buster in the game--a tiger-striped thong.
"I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," he told Portfolio.com. Funny, I always thought he used steroids when he was desperate to get out of a big slump.
With the Brewers hitting .241 as a team and having scored the fewest runs in the NL Central heading into Saturday's doubleheader, I say give the thong a try. Heck, if it would get him going, I'd put Rickie Weeks in a yellow polka-dot bikini.
