NY Yankee Jason Giambi is set to become the first active player to agree to meet and talk with former Senator George Mitchell about his own personal past drug use. He stated firmly that he will not implicate anyone else. This comes after much wrangling and arm-twisting from Commissioner Selig, who threatened disciplinary action if Giambi didn't cooperate. It is really Selig who is feeling the pressure to move the investigation forward. Until some kind of formal report is made, there is a stain on the game that will never go away. The "steroid years" diminishes the accomplishments of so many players from those years, maybe not all of them guilty.
