By Jason Giambi


“I’m too busy having fun to be mean and nasty.”

“Being patient, feeling comfortable, taking my walks—that’s part of my game.”

“I’m an adrenaline junkie—cars, bikes, bungee jumping—whatever you’ve got.”

“I think if you act the right way, good things come back to you.”

“People ask me, 'What would you be doing without baseball?' I don’t know...super-sizing fries?”

“I’m going to play my game and be who I am. I don’t think anyone puts more pressure on me than I do on myself.”

“How can you not have fun going around the country playing baseball for a living? Being a baseball player is the next best thing to being a rock star.”

"It goes great with my favorite pre-game meal. I usually have several Pepsis each day – it really lifts me up."

"When we clinched the division title a few years ago in Oakland and the players carried me off the field on their shoulders. I’ll never forget that."
