I was waiting for a chance tonight to write something stupid and punny along the lines of “Jason tried to run out a single, but he didn’t look so speedy.” In the mean time Deadspin summed up my opinion about the current Giambi dust-up. It’s a shame that so many pretended to ignore what was going on was some “magical” confluence to destroy everything long-timers knew about power and baseball. It’s a shame that now a confessor gets the Scarlet Letter treatment for telling us what we already knew. It’s a particular shame that Yankee management takes a line that it’s not possible that anybody outside the users knew what was going on. Hang Giambi out to dry, if it makes you feel better about the past. I’m disappointed in him, to be certain, but there is something about the fact that He’s The Only Guy In Baseball Talking About It. Just remember to ask yourself what are you willing to learn with full disclosure.
