Jason Giambi wants to play next season at age 43

Fresh off joining the 2,000-hit club, Jason Giambi told Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he hopes to continue playing next season at age 43 and would like to be back with the Indians.

During the offseason Giambi was in the running to become the Rockies’ manager, which would have required retiring as a player, but instead that job went to Walt Weiss and he took a part-time gig with the Indians.

Giambi has hit just .186 in 198 plate appearances and also struggled last season, so finding another non-coaching job might be tough.
