That said, there's no conspiracy here. The steal was not a straight steal but a hit and run where the batter swung and missed. The catcher then threw the ball into center field. Giambi has been battling the foot strain all month, and felt something "pop" while jogging around the bases after a HR in the same game that he earlier stole the base.
What is interesting, if you truely want to start a conspiracy theory is that this is the same exact injury that Mark McGuire sufferred in his career. Maybe the injury, as evidenced from Giambi and McGuire's problems, is the result of steroids and bulking up to the point where the foot ligaments cannot support the added weight.
As for Clemens, there has to be something to his "annual" retirements....
Isnt it ironic that the steroid users get hurt pretty bad following steroid investigations? Bonds, Giambi, Clemens....
y is clemens name in there? he didnt get injured.
I think he was implying that Clemens, like the others, has taken time "off" (retirement?) following investigations, or preventing testing from being conducted.
While it is certainly possible that Clemens has used the extra 3 month off-season created by his "retirements" (remember, MLB can't drug test a "retired" player) to roid up, I am doubtful that this is the case this season. Last year he returned in top form, while this season he just looked fat. We'll see how he pitches.
