Okay. What we all thought has now been admitted in open court. And so we have the sad conclusion that Giambi is a liar and a cheat. Until now, we’ve given him the benefit of the doubt—innocence until proven guilt. And what of the Yankees? Are they guilt free? Well, not entirely—all of MLB, players and owners, bear some responsibility for this problem; the players for their abuse and their stonewalling, the owners for their tacit acceptance while all those power numbers drove their gates.
We sincerely hope Jason Giambi has played his last game in pinstripes, at least for the forseeable future. After he does his penance with the league, if he even must do any, some other squad should be welcome to pick him up. But having this man back as a Bomber in not an acceptable option. We sincerely hope the remainder of his contract can be voided. He has now made a fortune from the Yankees beyond what any of us mere mortals can imagine. That should be enough. Neither the team nor its fans should be forced to pay one more dime. Good bye.
