Giambi is still a pretty significant piece of the Yankee offense. Why are they trying so hard to get rid of him? Or is this just a media story for a slow day? :-?

Unless I missed something, it's "unnamed sources" being used for this story and everyone's running around like it's a fact.

Slow day I think.


Giambi is important to this offense. I don't see them moving him because all they could get is junk.

If the Yankees void Giambi's contract, they should also have to void all otheir TV contracts. Do you really believe the Yankees didn't know he was on steroids before they signed him or even after his somewhat apology. Once again, hypocracy reigns.

I thought don't ask, don't tell was in reference to gays in the military!
Oh well, I never liked the Yankees anyway.

Why the heck would they have to void TV contracts? That makes no sense. How is that even related?

That's a quality post right there. Are the Yankees the only team giving contracts to known users?? Don't think so. He seems to be breaking down and they might be looking into their options. I see no fault in that. Also, that is pretty ironic coming from a Giants fan with Bonds in your sig.

Personally, I think that the Post has the best sports page. Sure, they reach but that's the entire paper.
