On the eve of pitchers and catchers reporting, no news on the excitement of a new season starting - just testimony on the story that won't go away. I Watched/heard most of the Congressional hearing today with Clemens and McNamee. I think at times both lied today, and have committed degrees of perjury.
I also think that Clemens is done and has been poorly advised by his representation from the start and that now, as a result of blatantly false statements under oath, he will likely be joining his boy Bonds in a cell inside of two years.
Think about it, at the end of all this, the best HR hitter of the era, and the best pitcher of the era, will be joining the best hitter (Rose), on the bench waiting for that ticket to Cooperstown that may never come.
On Joba starting the year in The Pen. I have mixed emotions. One side of me wants to see how or if this kid's dominance can translate in a starter pitching situation. The other says why mess with success and keep well enough alone. We'll see just how temporary this Pen assignment is - I suspect by temporary, they mean the whole season.
