Manny's countdown to 500 bombs

You Call that a Slump Buster?

Ew.Jason Giambi is not afraid to show his feminine side.

The New York Yankees’ first baseman let a little secret out Saturday when the Daily News wondered how he plans out getting out of his current slump, where he is batting just .181.

He wears a gold thong under his uniform.

This story only gets weirder when several teammates acknowledged trying to wear it, too, including Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon.

"Giambi’s a little freaky," said New York Mets skipper Willie Randolph before the Subway series. "I wouldn’t go there."
Some sources believe the thong came from an actual slump buster in 2005, when the Giambino won the Comeback Player of the Year award.
