Roger Clemens is a more effective campaigner than most of the people running for president.
After denials via press release, You Tube, 60 Minutes and a press conference, there is now a report on line from the Hendricks Brothers.
I haven’t had a chance to read the whole thing. But it seems to make the case that Clemens didn’t suddenly revive his career in Toronto.
While Clemens has mounted a multi-layered defense, what he says and how he looks in front of Congress will probably determine what most people believe. But as I’ve written here for a while, I don’t expect the truth in this situation to ever be black and white.
Erik Bedard is about to be on the move to Seattle according to several reports. Then it is expected the Orioles will trade Brian Roberts to the Cubs. The O’s are going head first into rebuilding, which is what they had to do.
The Twins, meanwhile, remind me of a desperate blackjack player who keeps betting the shoe hoping that the cards will turn for him. But the Yankees have no interest, the Red Sox marginal interest and Mets are content to sit back and watch the price of Johan Santana fall.
Unless Hank Steinbrenner sends his brother off in a rowboat, Santana is not going to be in pinstripes. Brian Cashman is making his stand here.
If you have the Seinfeld season 7 DVD, make sure you check out the extras to see the scenes George Steinbrenner shot that were trimmed out of the show. Big Stein did a good job, he was funny.
The scenes involve him asking Elaine to be his date to George’s wedding. Then he and Elaine go out for dinner.
