 NEW YORK (AP) -Lawyers for the commissioner's office and the players' association held more conversations Tuesday on a possible meeting with Jason Giambi but it remained uncertain when or if such a gathering would take place.
Lawyers for Major League Baseball would like to talk to Giambi about comments in last Friday's editions of USA Today.
``I was wrong for doing that stuff,'' the New York Yankees designated hitter was quoted as saying, remarks some have interpreted as an admission of steroids use.
Management lawyers would like to hold the meeting as soon as is practicable.
Hall of Famer Frank Robinson took issue with one of Giambi's comments.
``What we should have done a long time ago was stand up - players, ownership, everybody - and said: 'We made a mistake,''' Giambi was quoted as saying. ``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.''
Robinson said Giambi should speak for himself.
``If Jason wants to confess, then he should come out and say: `I'm guilty. I apologize. I apologize to baseball. I apologize to all the fans that have supported me and supported baseball over the years. And I will clean up my act and promise you I will not do anything like this again,''' Robinson said during an interview on ESPN. ``He should not drag others into (it), because when he says baseball, that includes everybody in baseball.''
Before the Yankees played Boston on Tuesday night, Giambi was asked about a report in the New York Post that said the Los Angeles Angels had an interest in acquiring him. Giambi has a full no-trade clause.
``This is all news to me. I'm a Yankee,'' he said. ``It's kind of fun to read. I never asked for it.''
