Indians | Terry Francona praises Jason Giambi

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona praised 1B Jason Giambi for mentoring any and all players on the team this year. "I've never had a guy like this," Francona said. "He's like a walking manager in the clubhouse. People talk about how you need a veteran guy like this for your young players. Heck, with him, it's every player. There's not a player in that (locker) room he can't talk to -- and who isn't really happy to see him coming over. He's been so much help to me in this job, I can't even describe it."

Fantasy Tip: Although Giambi isn't making much of an impact on the field these days, his contributions mentoring the entire team has paid immediate dividends for the team's chemistry, it seems. File this under the category of intangibles. Unfortunately, it won't help out in fantasy circles.
