Tom Davis must remember when Clemens left Game 1 of the 2005 WS with a groin pull in the 2nd inning

Former Rep. Tom Davis (who asked the Justice Department to investigate Clemens):

"I think you (meaning Clemens) need to cut your losses. Frankly, I think we'll see charges in the Clemens case and they will come around pretty quickly. Lying under oath is serious. It's not like A-Rod lying to Katie Couric in an interview. When you're under oath, you have to tell the truth."

"I don't think it bodes well for Roger," said Earl Ward, the defense attorney for McNamee, who told federal investigators that he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone multiple times from 1998 through 2001 and possibly 2002. "How can they go after Barry Bonds and Miguel Tejada and not indict Roger Clemens?"

That was my first thought when I read your breakdown on how the Miggs situation came down. What the heck more do they need to indict Roger??? They get one little peep about a "conversation" Miggs had with this guy and that's it. Albeit McNamee may not be the most credible source, but he's not the only one, is he?

The whole thing just feels dirty.

Good article to bring a little perspective on who's the good guy and who's the bad guy; not always so clear cut:

Yeah, they cheated. But do you really want government to have THAT much power? Not I.
