One more example why Angelos must go. Doesn't look like there is a whole lot to be proud of in Bawlmer. The New Oriole Way.

What a shock, I'd say Clemens started early too...i'd say near the end of his sox tenure..

Pettite basically got it from clemens, and came back into camp throwing 3-5mph faster, and was alot bigger. Magic man?

Tejada is really a "No kidding?" thing but i still want to make myself think he is clean...

Other than pure speculation by a bitter Chicago media, I have yet to see anybody come forward and claim to have injected, sold, bought from, watched or have first hand account of Sammy doing even Creatine. .. not one.

He corked a bat. Whooptee doo. He didn't hit 60 plus homers three times with a corked bat. I can promise you that.
Plenty of people have corked a bat. It didn't get them run out of town ..

what did he do.

he curiously forgot how to speak a language he had been immersed in for over a decade. the silence was deafening.

I'm really surprised at the lack of media coverage this story has gotten so far. You have to wonder if it would be different if it involved Bonds instead of Clemens... :-?

See, I think it deserves more coverage because it involves Clemens.

I think it would absolutely receive more media coverage if it was about Bonds. The media definitely despises Bonds because he's rejected them. I just don't agree that it's racially motivated. If that was the case they would be taking it to Sosa, Tejada, Sheffield, etc., the way they do Bonds.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Completely agree, and I think this is a shining example of the lack of objectivity that exists in the sports media.

I have had my suspicions about Clemens all along. His name has even popped up several times on a couple of national sports radio shows from anonymous sources after Bondsgate. But nobody did any offical investigating. And nobody took any bait that was dropped in the water.

When I heard the ICY HOT story from the WBC, I was like was like 8-o he could have easily used that to disguise the cream and the clear.
