Giambi: "We made a mistake."
"I was wrong for doing that stuff. What we should have done a long time ago was stand up — players, ownership, everybody — and said: 'We made a mistake.'
"We should have apologized back then and made sure we had a rule in place and gone forward. … Steroids and all of that was a part of history. But it was a topic that everybody wanted to avoid. Nobody wanted to talk about it."
Today MLB ordered Giambi to keep his yap shut. Seems like they still want to avoid the subject.
Meanwhile "in a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, 8% of 469 baseball fans surveyed this month said they currently consider Bonds to be the greatest all-time home run hitter. And even if Bonds hits his 756th home run to pass Aaron — which is likely to happen soon; Bonds has 745 — only 34% of fans said they would acknowledge Bonds as the best."
Hank Aaron already has said he won't be in attendance when Bonds breaks the record. MLB commissioner Selig hasn't committed either. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear, does it make a sound?
