According to one of the insiders, Jason Giambi and Roger Clemens would routinely drink beer on the dugout bench when they played for the Yankees, passing back and forth what Giambi called his "protein shake," code for a cup of beer, the source said.Giambi and Fat Billy played together on the Yankees in 2002-03 and 2007. ... Maybe that wasn't actually green tea in Joe Torre's paper cup?
And they weren't the only ones who partook. ... "Guys would drink them all the time, on the bench, in the clubhouse, in the training room. It's common."
The story also mentions a game in which Jose Canseco "drank a can of light beer, went out and hit a home run, went back into the clubhouse and drank another can, hit another home run, and did the same thing a third time. Three lights, three homers."
Canseco hit three home runs in a game only twice - July 3, 1988 (with Oakland), and June 13, 1994 (with Texas). However, the source does not specifically say Canseco did it during his season with the Yankees (2000). Canseco did not hit more than one Ballantine Blast in any game with New York.
In actual baseball news, Curt Young is no longer the Red Sox pitching coach. He has returned to Oakland.
