I’ve read and heard rumors that people are suggesting the Rangers trade Tex for Giambi. Please, Jon Daniels, show us you’re smarter than Giambi, and Just Say No! He’s too old. His production is in rapid decline, and last I checked, he can’t pitch. If we have to trade Tex (and I believe we will have to), we MUST get some pitching and maybe a catcher or outfielder in return. Pitching would be enough. More ideas later, but for now – Just Say No to Giambi.
In the meantime, though, baseball might want to Just Say Yes to Giambi’s suggestion that more than the players should fess up to the mistakes made regarding performance-enhancing drugs’ impact on the game. He may be the sloppiest looking player since John Kruk and a recovering substance and steroid abuser, but he’s actually right. I agree with what I think he’s thinking – basically that everyone associated with MLB during the past 15-pluis years is complicit in the rampant abuse of steroids (etc.) and the players, their union, owners, the league, the commissioner, and even us fans – heck, even the mascots – should “man up” and take ownership of their share of the blame for letting steroids taint the great game.
