 Scott Miller: Giambi and MLB

 

The American professional baseball first baseman with the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball was born on January 8, 1971 and was the American League MVP in 2000 while with the Oakland Athletics.

He was named one of the Top 10 Most Superstitious Athletes by Men’s Fitness. In the year 1992, he was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 2nd round in 1992 and spent the 1993 season playing for the Modesto A’s, the Oakland Athletics’ single A farm team. In 1995, Jason Giambi made his major league debut in 1995 with the Oakland Athletics and led the team in 1998 with 27 home runs, 110 RBIs, and a .295 batting average.

Jason signed a 7-year $120-million deal with the New York Yankees on December 13, 2001. Giambi hit his 300th career home run off of Esteban Yan of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on July 31, 2005 and ended the 2005 season leading the major leagues in walk percentage (20.6%) and leading the American League in walks for the 4th time in his career (109), and in OBP for the 3rd time in his career (.440, as well as in fly ball percentage (47.7%).

In 2003, the baseball player admitted before a federal grand jury in 2003 that he used anabolic steroids and human growth hormone, according to transcripts of testimony.

The former American League MVP told the grand jury investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroids case that he made use of anabolic steroids obtained from Greg Anderson, the personal trainer for San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds. He described the products received from Anderson “undetectable” steroids known as “the clear” and “the cream” and added he injected human growth hormone into his stomach and testosterone into his buttocks.

“The clear” is a liquid drug that is administered under the tongue a few drops at a time while “The cream” is a testosterone-based balm rubbed onto the body. Anderson described “the cream” and “the clear” as “an alternative to steroids, but it doesn’t show on a steroid test,” Giambi said. Jason Giambi also apologized for using performance enhancing drugs his career. Jason’s younger brother Jeremy, a former Oakland outfielder, also told the grand jury that he injected banned drugs received from Anderson.

Jim Thome in close distance to emulate A-Rod's featJim Thome of the Minnesota Twins with 877 career homers till now is all set to join Alex Rodriguez in the 600 home run club if he continues playing.

Thome’s contributions to the game of baseball were possibly subdued by sluggers using anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs to make quick name, fame, and money and Baseball Hall of Fame voters thinking that his efforts may also be on the lines of these tainted players.

The Baseball Hall of Fame voters need to realize that the best thing they can do is to ignore the use of steroids since that relates to an era before testing.

  PROSECUTORS CALLING IN MORE MAJOR LEAGUE PLAYERS TO COURT

bonds-giambi-steroidsProsecutors for Barry Bonds’ perjury trial will be calling in several Major League players to testify in court in order to support that Greg Anderson, Bonds’ trainer, created an anabolic steroids calendar scheduling the use of performance enhancing drugs and training. Prosecutors are hoping that a calendar with Bonds’ initials seized from Victor Conte’s office in 2003 will indirectly prove that the athlete is lying about not knowing that he was taking steroids. The players who will be called are the Giambi brothers, Jason and Jeremy, Bobby Estalella, Gary Sheffield, Benito Santiago, Randy Vellarde and Marvin Benard. Bonds’ trial will be held on the 2nd of March.

The defense would most probably try to sway the jury that Estalella is inconsistent and that he should have already testified about knowing Bonds’ steroid use during the 2006 trial. Still, there are other players who do know about Anderson’s calendar.

Jason Giambi played with the Yankees from 2002 through last season. He became a free agent and signed a contract to return to the Oakland Athletics in 2009. Giambi reportedly told the BALCO grand jury that Anderson told him “the cream” and “the clear” were an alternative to steroids that would not show up in drug tests. Giambi also acknowledged that Anderson kept a calendar outlining his training program and drug use, as did Jeremy Giambi
