Giambi: All of baseball should apologize for steroids, revere Bonds...


In today's USA Today (you can find a trampled over copy at the doorstep of any hotel room across this great country), Yankees DH Jason Giambi gives some contradictory statements about steroids:

"We should have apologized back then and made sure we had a rule in place and gone forward. … Steroids and all of that was a part of history. But it was a topic that everybody wanted to avoid. Nobody wanted to talk about it."

When asked, "So why did you take steroids?" Giambi said: "Maybe one day I'll talk about it, but not now."

Well shit Jason... Nobody wanted to talk about steroids, and here's brave little ol' you talking about steroids but not answering questions about them. Are you waiting until your playing days are over to bust out a juicy (pun-intended) novella about your steroid use and how your idol Mark McBeef initiated you into the scene? Yeah, you probably shouldn't say too much just yet... Maybe one day though... Asshole.

He further goes on to say:

"That stuff didn't help me hit home runs. I don't care what people say, nothing is going to give you that gift of hitting a baseball."

Hmmm... While you can obviously hit a baseball without the aid of steroids, it is odd that your slugging percentage has come down .100 points since your heyday in a pitcher friendly Oakland park after moving to left hand hitter friendly Yankee Stadium. And I'm pretty sure scientists, doctors, etc. have proven that steroid use will increase strength which should help to hit the ball further (with other side effects of course).

"Barry is one of the greatest players, if not the greatest, I'll ever see play," says Giambi, who has hit 355 career home runs. "I know people have a tough time accepting it, but what he's doing is unbelievable. And I don't care what people say — nothing is going to give you that gift of hitting a baseball.

"Barry is like the great white shark," Giambi says, "the greatest killing machine on the planet. All it does is swim and eat.
"If you sit from afar, and look at him, that's Barry.
"Barry's motivation is to be the best baseball player this game has ever seen. And if you're in his way, he'll tell you, 'You better get (out of the way), you're ruining my mojo.' "

Who cares Bonds did/does steroids? Look at the fucking havoc he's causing. Big shit, he broke the rules, used illegal substances. Look at the fucking power he has. C'mon. Stop fucking with his mojo.
Jason Giambi... Dumber than a bag of hammers. Enjoy sitting on the bench at Shea and watching your team get stomped, asshole.
What the fuck are you drinking there anyway? Does Red Bull make you a special brew of just taurine? Do they throw bulls testicles in a blender, put it on chop and pour it into a bottle just for you? That's just nasty man.

By the way readers, keep on signing the Bonds asterisk petition. It's doubled in signatures thanks to people like you!

What the hell is Giambi doing? First of all, does anybody care what his view of the situation is? I sure don't. Giambi has been rather invisible since he admitted to using steroids. Maybe that's what this is all about - attention.

And as far as baseball apologizing...?


For what? Its baseball's fault that these freak's inflated domes and greed have ruined the greatest game ever? Apologize schmologize. Why can't that piece of garbage Bonds apologize? His whole persona, his alibi and his life now are all about one thing - other people were doing something wrong and he knew he could do it and get the most out of it while getting away with it.

I love that Selig is being such an ass about being there when Bonds breaks the record. It's not like Selig is totally without blame here, however, but anyone who stands up to Mr. Untouchable is ok im my book.
