Jason Giambi returns to Indians (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: September 1, 2014, 8:42 pm]

When Giambi broke in with the Oakland Athletics 21 years ago he was given No. 72 and a locker near Hall of Famer Goose Gossage, one of the most intimidating closers in history. ''Turns out he was a teddy bear and we became close friends.'' Giambi, who also missed time this season with a broken rib and strained calf, needed a new number after surrendering No. 25 to former Indians star Jim Thome, who signed a one-day contract to officially retirie with Cleveland earlier this season when the club unveiled a statue in his honor.
