They weren't. One of the pitchers was a blue-chipper, another was supposed to be a near-MLB ready lefty, a command guy.

I like Swisher...Billy Beane had a major hard on for him when he drafted him, I remember that bit in Moneyball. Apparently they plan to play Swisher in CF...the ChiSox could actually be good this year if any relief pitchers bother showing up.

Isn't he to testify in front of Congress too? If there is a lawsuit, he can plead the fifth when he is called to testify.

Fishy.

According to Clemens, he'll gladly speak to Congress. Hell, he threw a press conference to clear his name.

Re: his Friday phone call with his trainer...

Answer: "Because you told me to...!

The Question that Roger never asked: "Why did you stick that needle in my ass????"

All smoke-screen....:liarsmilie:

That phone conversation was just weird. What exactly was Clemens trying to accomplish by playing that for people? McNamee was putting on a good show by saying multiple times, I'll do whatever you want.

Roger danced like Fred Astaire!

Its apparent to me that the trainer did NOT know that the call was being taped, which is most jurisdictions is illegal (poor Roger) and that Roger was merely trying to bait him into some voluntary admissions...

Like a couple of girls dancing and neither knowing who was to lead...the trainer seemed to be "on" to Roger... what a circus...

Roger can't even pretend to be mad...he's toast.

The phone conversation made it all crystal clear.

That was bizarre listening to that, but in the end, it really didn't change anything.

Either Clemens is really innocent, or he has psychologically convinced himself he did no wrong. Whatever it is, I can't see how suing the guy helps him at all. It will just open up a big can of worms.

I saw an ESPN ticker-line say that the trainer plans to Counter-sue Clemons...

Remember what George Costanza said, "Its not a lie, if you believe it..."

I'm guessing Clemons is a Seinfeld fan...

I have only heard clips of the conversation, but from what I understand Clemens never explicitly asked McNamee, "Why did you lie Brian? Why did you do it? You know you shot me with B12."

This would have, of course, forced McNamee to answer either "I'm not lying" or "I did it because...." Of course, because Clemens knew the conversation was being taped he didn't want McNamee to answer those questions!

Wouldn't those be natural questions to ask someone that had done you wrong?
