The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
Does he think the writers will vote him into the Hall now?
I don't see how they can say he didn't lie since his trainer had DNA evidence
Clemens is a liar and a juicer. THAT is the truth.
I'm stunned. This is sooooooooooooo wrong.

Ooops, sorry. Wrong decade.
94 and winning the division and the NLCS but falling in the WS to Toronto in 6
94 Reds / 86 Cards / 85 Pirates / 76 Cubs / 72 Brewers
Everyone involved in this thing is a slimeball. Probably didn't have quite enough evidence to convict in large part because McNamee is hardly credible himself. Hopefully, this story can go away now and jurors can stop falling asleep...I don't blame them...this was a tired story two years ago. Clemens did it, we all know he did...whatever. Glad it's done.
He's already guilty in the court of public opinion; this won't affect that.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Perjury is one of the hardest convictions to get in court.
Celebrities are nearly impossible to convict in court, especially by a jury.
Everyone knows he's guilty, this should have been expected, and doesn't change a thing.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
I once helped out an attorney defending a child rape case. The victim's family was basically running a flophouse for all kinds of unsavory characters and were downstairs drunk and high playing video games when the incident occurred. The defendant was found guilty, but only because, on the night before the last day of trial, he admitted on the jail phone to his mom that he did it and it was recorded by the sheriff's department. The jury told us that, had he not admitted it on the phone, they would have acquitted him because all the prosecution's witnesses were dirtbags who they couldn't trust. So just because the jury doesn't pass down a criminal conviction doesn't necessarily mean Clemens didn't do it.
I think it's likely that Clemens juiced, just because Andy Pettite indicated as much in his testimony to Congress, corroborating some of McNamee's testimony. While I don't think much of McNamee, I think Pettite is a stand up guy and wouldn't make up that kind of stuff to take down Clemens, whom he considered a friend.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
I'm guessing the judge felt immense pressure from certain entities to make sure this case was heard after the gov't already had wasted hundreds of thousands if not millions trying to nail Clemens to the wall.
I thought i read it cost the government close to 120 million, but when i read that figure i thought it was a mis-print.
Really, if McNamee is such a sketchy guy, why is Clemens using him as his personal trainer and having him at his house all the time? Could it be that Clemens is pretty sketchy himself? Could it be that Clemens hired McNamee because he was a guy who was willing and able to get steroids and/or HGH through illicit means? If a guy wants to use PEDs, chances are he isn't calling up Mr. Upstanding Citizen to do his bidding.
Why are people so willing to accept that Barry Bonds was on steroids, but that Roger Clemens is some hard done guy who is the victim of a smear campaign by a scheming ex-employee?
From what I read, the jurors were people (8 women, 4 men), who knew little and/or cared little about sports in general and baseball in particular.
That's how they are chosen these days. You'll never find an accountant on a financial fraud case jury or a social worker on a domestic violence case.
