A man has been calling media outlets, claiming to be the assistant to Yankees president Randy Levine, with information that Jason Giambi had tested positive for steroids, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
In response, Yankees officials have asked the New York Police Department to find the caller, who claimed Major League Baseball would announce the failed test Friday. A team and a league source both told the Daily News that Giambi, who has been tested at least once this season, has not failed MLB's steroid tests.
Giambi, when told of the news, turned green and smashed up the Yankees clubhouse with his bare hands. A swat team was called in to calm down the Sultan of Steroids who stood juggling A-Rod, Derek Jeter, and Tony Womack.
Giambi hit 14 homers in July, becoming the first Yankee to hit that many in a month since Mickey Mantle in 1961. He was hitting a season-low .195 on May 9, but has raised his average to .284.
At least they tested him once. It is not like Giambi testified that he had used steroids in front of a grand jury or something.
