The only thing I didn’t like about the short-lived Seth Mnookin/Bill Simmons feud is that they’ve apparently called a cease-fire (wtf?). That said, Seth’s got a new target today…the reigning AL Comeback Player Of The Year!
Earlier this week, Giambi (above) told a reporter from MLB.com that grand jury leaks are a œserious issue. œWhen we were brought in [to the grand jury], we had to talk about our situation that we went through, he said. œPeople want to know the same thing now, because these laws are what our country is based on. However they obtained it, it was illegal. Indeed, Giambi says he™s now concerned about the sanctity of the American legal system (although the sanctity of the profession that™s made him rich doesn™t seem to concern him): œThere are now a lot of people who won™t testify in front of a grand jury because of the situation that has gone on. It was a situation that, who knows what would have transpired had his testimony not been leaked. œI went through what I did and moved forward. I haven™t looked back. That™s for sure: Giambi is currently on pace to hit 48 home runs, five more than his previous best.
A year and a half after his pathetic non-apology apology, Jason Giambi is lecturing reporters on their need to take responsibility for their actions. (Giambi, for anyone who doesn™t remember, made the Yankees remove the word œsteroid from his 2001, $120 million contract.) Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein has said his paper will not comply with the government™s demand that his reporters give up their sources.
It seems to me that if Jason really wants to know the identities of Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams’ sources, his rubber check psychic guru lady pal should be able to sort it out.
