Jason Giambi comments, today, via an AP report on his upcoming meeting with George Mitchell -
“I will address my own personal history regarding steroids.”
“A direct conversation the commissioner impressed upon me the idea that the game of baseball would be best served by such a meeting. I will continue to do what I think is right and be candid about my past history regarding steroids.”
I recall reading that Giambi’s contract has a clause in it that reportedly says he cannot use illegal drugs and needs to stay away from chemical use/dependency. While that does not say “steroids” specifically, will the Yankees now try and make a case (that steroids are illegal, etc.) and then try and void Giambi’s contract?
It would save the team $26 million and a roster spot for next year.
It’s very tempting, if you’re New York, no?
