Hey, look, it’s federal evidence

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jul 16, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

brady-bunch-e.jpgThis is beautiful. Drug dealer/car washer Kirk Radomski now claims that when he looked under his television last weekend he found overnight mail slips from packages of HGH that he sent to Roger Clemens’ house.

This according to one of Brian McNamee’s lawyers. Of course.

I don’t know about you, but that’s where I keep all my receipts, right under the Sony. It’s like a paperweight, only much more effective.

The feds should send a team to Radomski’s house and see what’s under the refridgerator. There could be evidence clearing Shoeless Joe Jackson under it.

This whole mess is starting to resemble a Brady Bunch plot. In this episode, Greg (Roger Clemens) hides his report card under the television while Peter (Kirk Radomski) and Bobby (Brian McNamee) look for it. With Debbie Clemens as Marcia and Jeff Novitzky as Sam the butcher.

    It’s gone from being mildly interesting to a total farce, and Clemens’ name is probably tarnished for a very very long time.

  2. Buddy Biancalana July 16th, 2008 at 10:22 pm

    I prefer Marcia over Debbie Clemens, no artificial hormones for me.

  3. Yanks25 July 16th, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    Yea this is dumb. Clemens is a cheat and a lier.

  4. Jorge Steinbrenner July 16th, 2008 at 10:26 pm

    I just finished reading “Steroid Nation.” Fascinating read which had an unintended effect on me. It really underscored the grey areas involved with PEDs and made me question my own stance on so-called “cheating.” I honestly can’t say I feel as strongly that supposed PED users are “cheaters” anymore after reading. That couldn’t possibly be what the author intended. :)

  5. Bob(The Original) July 16th, 2008 at 10:32 pm

    Yeah, yeah, they were under the tv, that’s it…..

    Yawn. I don’t even read any of these Clemens stories anymore. I see the headlines, roll my eyes, and move along.

  6. Dis Custard July 16th, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    When things like this keep coming out it starts to really smell.

    Who knows if Clemens did the stuff. He very well might have, but with the two characters who have this evidence that seems to keep coming out, then you question it. It stretches you credibility to believe that these were hiding under a TV and now that TV broke.

    I don’t trust McNamee whatsoever. I have a hard time believing Clemens on anything he says. Radomski is not a stand up citizen.

    The one thing I keep coming back to is this constant “new evidence” that seems to be found in the strangest places or circumstances. None of which would be able to be used in court.

  7. Johnny B July 16th, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    Even Greg Brady cheated when he stole the other teams playbook. Of course he came clean later. OH MY NOSE!!!!

  8. kd July 16th, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    this whole things needs to go away

    I’m too busy planning out my friends’ first and only trips to Yankee Stadium to watch BT.

    I’m afraid if I was watching that anyway I’d end up crying (again).

  18. Bob(The Original) July 16th, 2008 at 11:07 pm

    I’m too busy planning out my friends’ first and only trips to Yankee Stadium to watch BT.

    What day are you going?

    At least I can put a bet down and make some money off a Yankee loss. ;)

  19. RustyJohn July 16th, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    I’d have to say that my favorite Brady BUnch episode would either be the one where they go to Hawaii with VIncent Price or the one where they have to build a house of cards and, if the girls win, they get a sewing machine and, if the boys win, they get a tv or a boat or something like that.

    Okay, that contributed nothing to the blog. Off to watch tv.

    Rush is on the Colbert Report tonight, they’re going to play “Tom Sawyer”.

  20. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 16th, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    Bob, they won the last time I went, so I wouldn’t be to quick. And I’ve decided not to specify the dates.

  21. bodhisattva July 16th, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    Rebecca,

    Know what you mean :)

  22. Yankees Chick July 16th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    thank you so much for the b-bunch shout-out. dont forget about sam the butcher – he might find some syringes under his bone saw.

  23. RustyJohn July 16th, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    Holy bone saw….what does that mean?

    I’m just loving the Brady Bunch picture. At least Alice found out before the show ended that she didn’t have a future career in swedish massage.

    Checking some Rangers forum, the rumors are Elvis Andrus will soon be called up to the big club, moving Young to 3B and since he’s 31 they may want to deal him. If Daniels decides the Rangers are in contention he will not blink to deal Micheal Young who would be out of a spot in Texas. So this will be interesting to follow.

  29. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 12:15 am

    Brandon: Why did I think you were talking about the NY rangers at first?

  30. Buddy Biancalana July 17th, 2008 at 12:19 am

    Makes sense Brandon, b/c Blalock is moving to 1st.

  31. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 12:19 am

    Rebecca because we live in NY :lol:

  32. Buddy Biancalana July 17th, 2008 at 12:28 am

    Rebecca lives in Jersey, soon to be NYC.

  33. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 12:29 am

    Cashman should look into trading for Ryan Ludwick of the Cardinals.He’s a OFer who isn’t AFRAID of walls, in his early 30s, an all-star this year, and hits for power. the only downside is, strikes out a bit too much. 73 ks out of 298 abs in 87 games. I also read somewhere that the Cardinals are planning to trade him for a pitcher, either a 2b or SS.

  34. V July 17th, 2008 at 12:29 am

    Did you guys see the latest quote from Papelbum in regards to the new stadium being built?

    “The Evil Empire gets even more evil,” said Boston’s Jonathan Papelbon. “They are just another team in another stadium.”

    “You can hate them, it’s harder to hate Yankee Stadium,” he said. “All that good that rests in that stadium is gone.

    They won’t be the same team ever again.”

    There are more quotes from other players here:

  35. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 12:31 am

    does Young want to move to the OF? hm…

  36. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 12:34 am

    Does Papelbon like being the most hated person in NY?

  37. Tank July 17th, 2008 at 12:37 am

    What happened to Chris Smith? He was supposed to slug like Papi/choke up like Bonds. He hit .700 in Compton.

  38. Buddy Biancalana July 17th, 2008 at 12:38 am

    The Rangers have Ramon Vazquez at 3rd now & he’s been playing fairly well, maybe he is on the block.

  39. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 12:38 am

    Rebecca, when Mo was elected to the 99 All-Stars, he held his mouth close about wanting to close in Boston. As for Papelbum, he just wants attention.

  40. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 12:41 am

    It’s not even freshman semenar for him :lol: , relax the kid plays every 3 or 4 days they don’t want to over play him, he’s getting use to a new brand of baseball.

  41. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 12:49 am

    Tank here’s a little perspective into this kids potential.

    This was dated on Jul 10th-

    ALL-AMERICAN HONORS

    Centennial High School graduate Chris Smith has earned a second-team berth on the MaxPreps.com All-American baseball team.

    Currently playing in the New York Yankees farm system (he was a fifth-round choice in June), Smith has also been selected to the Baseball Coaches of America All-District 8 team and USA Today’s All-American second team. MaxPreps also put him on its all-state team.

    He led the nation (according to MaxPreps.com) in slugging (1.361) and was second in batting average (.708). He hit 12 home runs, drove in 43 and stole 24 bases in 20 games.

    He’s 18 years old, 18 and was drafted in the 5rd and is currently in the farmsystem. He would be an amazing story if it all pans out.

  42. Nick in SF July 17th, 2008 at 12:53 am

    Hey Papelbon, John Rocker called, he wants his infamy back.

  43. Gene July 17th, 2008 at 12:53 am

    Trade for Ludwick? He’s a .263 career hitter who couldn’t stick in the majors until this year. What possibly makes you think he’s actually a good player and wasn’t just a mirage in the 1st half?

  44. SCRANTON July 17th, 2008 at 1:00 am

    Speaking of federal evidence, Barry Bonds won’t cost us any prospects.

  45. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 1:00 am

    Gene, from what I heard last night, he’s been hurt due to freak accidents. His story is similar to Josh Hamilton (of course Josh’s is better), a great come back who made it to the All-Stars. As for his lack of playing time, blame it to Juan Encarnacion. Ludwick became a starter during the last month of the 2007 seaon because Encarnacion got injuried.

  46. Chris Serico July 17th, 2008 at 1:03 am

    And Bud Selig as Alice.

  47. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:03 am

    Speaking of federal evidence, Barry Bonds won’t cost us any prospects.

    And ?

  48. Gene July 17th, 2008 at 1:11 am

    I’m skeptical. Josh Hamilton was the #1 overall pick, he oozed talent, he was can’t miss. To me Ludwick looked like a fringe MLB player who had a great half. Maybe he’s put it together now but I can’t see him being worth giving up any decent prospects for this year.

  49. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 1:11 am

    You know, I’ forgotten this guy even, like, existed.

  50. Bob(The Original) July 17th, 2008 at 1:11 am

    Brandon…so you think the Rangers would be willing to trade Young?

    How does Chris Davis fit into all this? Lefty, who can flat out rake.

    Seems maybe they have too many bats and as always need pitching?

    Interesting.

  51. Nick in SF July 17th, 2008 at 1:13 am

    “You know, I’ forgotten this guy even, like, existed.”

    Well I’m sorry, I was pretty busy today! I’ll try to post more often. It is the all-star break, ya know.

  52. Bob(The Original) July 17th, 2008 at 1:15 am

    Possible good news for fellow out of NYC Yankee fans like me who watch them on Extra Innings nad hate getting stuck with the other teams broadcast.

    Just checked the scheduled games for tommorow on one of the channels and for the first time they have the choice of home and away broadcast feeds listed.

    Finally!!!!!

  53. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:16 am

    How does Chris Davis fit into all this? Lefty, who can flat out rake.

    Thier franchise 1B, and they will make Blalock a 3B/1B/DH until he is traded also is my guess. That team is stacked w/ hitting talent.

  54. Bob(The Original) July 17th, 2008 at 1:17 am

    Whatever happend to that other guy, Botts I think was his name?

    Heard alot about him a few years ago, but seems they never really gave him a chance.

  55. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 1:23 am

    Bob, Botts was DFA couple of months ago then he went on to play for Japan.

  56. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 1:23 am

    Nick: The ASB coincides perfectly with the release of The Dark Knight!

  57. SCRANTON July 17th, 2008 at 1:25 am

    Whats up with Layne Bryant ads on this page? Fat chicks have a thing for this blog?

  58. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:29 am

    Whatever happend to that other guy, Botts I think was his name?

    Heard alot about him a few years ago, but seems they never really gave him a chance.

    Jason Botts has been strugling I think he was DFA and no one picked him up, he’s turned into a Chris Shelton/Shane Spencer (just disappeared)

  59. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:30 am

    Hank Blalock is being regulated to DH, he’s going to net someone, although too bad it will be a huge risk for whoever gets him.

  60. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:34 am

    IDK why but Milton Bradley reminds me of David Justicebut he’s nuts, but he can swing and is a switch hitter and field but he’s nuts (I’d still get him) :?

  61. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 1:40 am

    Jason Botts has been strugling I think he was DFA and no one picked him up, he’s turned into a Chris Shelton/Shane Spencer (just disappeared)

    Chris Shelton would had been a nice pick up, he would be way better than Betemit. However, Cashman had signed way too many 1b anyways.

  62. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 1:41 am

    Brandon, you know, I actually wouldn’t mind seeing Bradley on the Yankees.

    It makes utterly no sense given his history and I shouldn’t want him on the Yankees at all…but I dunno, something…

  63. Evan July 17th, 2008 at 1:48 am

    Peter-

    Marcia just broke our date :(

    She says, “something suddenly came up.”

  64. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 1:49 am

    I still couldn’t believe Cashman chose Phelps over Hamilton during last season’s rule 5 draft. He could had letted Bobby walked, and Josh to be our RFer. Now that Matsui is possibly done for the season, we really need a bat like Hamilton’s.

  65. Rebecca--Optimist Prime-Mo for Cy Young 08 July 17th, 2008 at 1:52 am

    Ed, Hamilton was a MAJOR gamble. The odds that he’d succeed were really slim.

    It’s unny the way baseball works like that.

  66. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 1:57 am

    I still couldn’t believe Cashman chose Phelps over Hamilton during last season’s rule 5 draft.

    He never got to us, the Cubs picked him for like 45 seconds, then he landed in Cincy.

  67. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 1:58 am

    Rebecca, I couldnt agree with you more. Remember how everyone praised Phelps last season during Spring Training? Look how that turned out.

  68. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 2:00 am

    He never got to us, the Cubs picked him for like 45 seconds, then he landed in Cincy.

    I’m guessing it starts out with the team that was in last place.

    If we were to trade for him now, it would be for a king’s ransome.

  69. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 2:04 am

    If we were to trade for him now, it would be for a king’s ransome.

    Yup !

  70. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 2:20 am

    Milton Bradley executes the hit n’ run

  71. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 2:24 am

    Richie Sexson sac fly, RBI double and shortens up his swing

  72. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 2:37 am

    which one do you prefer, Brandon?

  73. Ed - Yanks will be Yanks in the 2nd half! July 17th, 2008 at 2:38 am

    who*

  74. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 2:58 am

    Well Sexson is cheaper if he chooses us and could have some upside, I’d prefer Bradley but he again would have to be traded for and the price tag who knows .. but those two wouldn’t be bad.

    Here another guy

    Raul Ibanez RISP

  75. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 3:04 am

    Casey Blake’s versatility

  76. Brandon (Jeter GIDP: *15 even in All Star Games) (Johan HR count: 13 and a SP) July 17th, 2008 at 3:06 am

    Blake hitting w/ RISP

  77. DFox July 17th, 2008 at 4:01 am

    Trade: Ian Kennedy, Phil Hughes, Austin Jackson, Brett Gardner for Josh Hamilton, Ian Kinsler

  78. James July 17th, 2008 at 9:11 am

    DFox,
    Yeah that trade makes a lot of sense. I’m sure Texas would trade their two young all stars to us for some prospects.

  79. Buddy Biancalana July 17th, 2008 at 10:02 am

    Especially when they traded Volquez for Hamilton, they going to say here you go Yanks, enjoy him.

  80. Fred the Baker July 17th, 2008 at 11:48 am

    If Peter kept all his Dunkin’ Donuts receipts under his television, he’d have no need for a TV stand.

  81. george July 17th, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    the interesting thing about these Radmoski receipts is they may tend to back up Clemens’ version of the Debbie Clemens HGH story, and discredit McNamee’s version.

    in the depositions for Representative Waxman’s committee, McNamee claimed that he did not provide the HGH, but that Roger did. but here you’ve got a receipt addressed to Clemens’ address, but sent in care of McNamee.

    both sides agree that McNamee was living on Clemens’ property when the injections occurred. So, if the receipt correlates with when Mrs. Clemens was injected, it suggests that McNamee did provide the HGH.
