Who’s Eli-ing Now?

More evidence that Red Sox play dirty.  Gagne’s already traded gone.  What about Varitek? 

About
Clemens, I never wanted him and I didn’t want him back. The audience at
last season’s Pinstripes on the Park was less than enthusiastic when he
made his first post-re-signing appearance. His cheerleading then and
after was seductive, but it rang a little sad.

As Clemens once called David Wells, we may now call him, Eli.  (Remember the **** everyone gave Wells for spilling any beans about steroids in his book, which came out before Canseco’s?)

No surprise about Petitte.  They were inseparable.

By
the way, the Yanks fired their personal trainer, McNamee, whom Clemens
brought over from Toronto, in 2001. He is their alleged supplier, and I
believe Clemens continued to see him.

That was a public
statement of the Yanks’ approach to anything suspicious. And it’s
suspicious that there are so many Yankees on the list. Then again,
would we expect less of conclusions drawn by the Chairman Director of the Red
Sox Board? However, I must admit, a brief bio hunt turned up nothing
unpraiseworthy, let alone compromising, about Mitchell except his team
position in the Red Sox organization, and the fact that he did not
recuse himself from the commission immediately. He should never have
accepted a role that in itself demonstrates his conflict of interest.

Giambi
and Sheffield were open (Sheffield used a topical formula as I recall).
But I hope they didn’t inform. If they had to, so be it. Giambi was
summoned more than once, and he is a friend of Wells!

But we
must remember overall that most "evidence" in the Mitchell paper is
from informants, as I understand it. Informants are criminals caught
red handed, and they have every reason to "cooperate." How much more do
we trust their information than the word of the waterboarded?

Finally,
why were the results of the contractually-anonymous drug tests made
available to the committee? (or, am I confusing this committee with
another?) Although the results were not used as evidence in the report,
it should not have been available as I understand the contract. Is this
another execution of self-righteous union-busting?

    Wow!

    What other evidence is there the Red Sox play dirty? Gagne was a free agent, not traded. Shouldn’t Posada be accused of cheating? He’s the catcher imporving as he gets older. I can’t imagine either Posada or Varitek uses performance enhancing drugs.

    Mithell isn’t Chairman of the Board, he’s a director. The reason there are so many Yankees is because it was a Yankee trainer, if it had been a Dodgers trainer that the feds caught it would’ve been a lot of Dodgers. Nobody was “summoned”; neither Sheffield or Giambi informed.

    The evidence thoughout the report is suspect at best and shouldn’t be believed; he was doing & saying what he had to to save himself.
