Tell Us Something NEW
Saturday, June 23, 2007
buddy and his buddyJudging by the optimistic smile on Mitch's face, it is clear that this picture was taken several years ago. Selig, on the other hand, is wearing the expression of a man smart enough to know that no one would cooperate with Mitch's "investigation"

In the wake of his now infamous little chat with USA Today back in May, Giambi has spent the past month not just on the DL but in Buddy Sielig's hot seat. Buddy and his buddy ex-senator Mitchell have been on their knees begging players to give them some scoop on steroid use for the past few years to no avail, but after threatening Giambi with possible "disciplinary action" (I can't decide if that sounds dirty or not... ok, it does) it looks like they have finally wrangled a player into talking to them. Giambi officially agreed to have a sit-down with Mitch some time in July and has promised to divulge all the details of his own steroid use/abuse, but he has pledged not to discuss any information he knows about the steroid use of any other player.

While I suppose it is a credit to Giambi's character that he won't be throwing any of his co-cheaters under the bus, I must admit that his refusal to do so makes this whole story completely uninteresting. We already know Giambi dabbled in a little drug use (and by "dabbled" I mean "used...a lot", and by "drug" I mean "cheater juice"), so I don't even know what other revelations Bud and Mitch hope to become privy to. Since no one has ever agreed to help Mitchy out with his steroid investigation, he and Buddy are thrilled to have finally conned someone into cooperating, but I cannot fathom what help Giambi will really be if he is only going to talk about himself. The best-case scenario for Mitch would be if Giambi will give up his sources and implicate the people responsible for supplying him with the goods - - - but even if Mitch & Co. had that information, would they have the legal grounds to force further information out of those suppliers, since the investigation isn't one mandated or governed by any court? That sounds like a question for Daddy Yankees Chick, who, besides looking exactly like David Wells* is also a lawyer and may have some insight on the subject. In any event, I certainly hope whatever Giambi does divulge will be made public ASAP, because who doesn't enjoy hearing dirty details about cheating, however insignificant they may be?

On second thought, who am I kidding? If Giambi can't keep his yapper shut during an interview with USA Today, why the hell would he be able to keep quiet during a conversation with Mitch? I've got 10 bucks that says Giambi ends up incriminating at least 2 other players and a high-profile doctor/supplier.

*My dad really does look like Boomer. Also, they both have gout. Classy.

    So I just hope this season hows shown you how awful it has felt to be a sox fan so many times in the past...they suck, then they give you this slight glimmer of hope that makes you believe in them, and then they kick you in the nuts really, really hard and remind you they suck. I think we can all now appreciate each other a little more.

    Actually, 2004 showed us what it was like to be a Boston fan. We didn't need this, too.
