I'm not a lawyer, but if I had to guess, it is not a good thing when Congress asks the Dept. of Justice to investigate you. This just in, the war is over, and Clemens has lost.
Tampa's star Scott Kazmir has an elbow strain and is out for a few weeks. Every preseason I always think Tampa is going to surprise and breakthrough - and every season they don't. Looking at their lineup, I find myself wondering that yet again. Hopefully Kazmir will rehab, and this franchise can get going. It'd be nice to see a different team challenging and mixing it up for a role in the October tourney.
What would a preseason post be without me mentioning our favored son, Jeff Karstens who retired the big guns (Damon, A-Rod, Abreu, and Giambi) in order for his '08 debut today. Is to soon to predict his front runner status as the Cy Young favorite?
Non-Baseball Note: Traditional minded citizens of the world lost a great one today - William F. Buckley passed away. Outside of the boys that put together the Federalist Papers, no one could match this guy's intellect when putting forth ideas.
