Sports News - Giambi Cooperates

Yankees' slugger Jason Giambi will become the first player to speak to the former Senate majority leader regarding his use of steroids. The controversy started after Giambi made comments about his use in a USA Today story published in May. The former All-Star is expected to come clean about his steroids use, but is not expected to name other names. His admissions may have consequences with the league and the Yankees. There are reports his contract may also be voided.

It is apparent the rest of the league has a lot of catching up to do.
