Yankee slugger Jason Giambi tries putting pop in his bat with a performance-enhancing thong.

"I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," Giambi told Portfolio magazine's Franz Lidz.
What's more, he has loaned the magic thong to past and current Yanks Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robinson Cano and Robin Ventura when they went into hitless streaks.
And Yankees fans give me snide remarks when they see my son in a Mets t-shirt.
