Quote to note

"You still have to be able to play. If you can't, you make a guy a coach. But 'G' can change the game in the batter's box, and again, he's not here to hit .300. If he did, that'd be great, but he's here to change the game with one of his swings. He has the ability to do that."
--Indians manager Terry Francona, on veteran Jason Giambi
