Walton is known by local defense attorneys as a "long ball hitter" - a judge willing to impose long sentences in order to deter future crimes

Good luck, Roger! None of us are counting on you!

I think most sportswriters forget that Clemens doesn't have to accept a jury that already knows whether or not he is guilty.

The chief witness against him is a known and admitted liar. So basically you have Pettitte versus Clemens. You have to give him (Clemens) the benefit of the doubt.

I think he has an excellent chance of being acquitted and I hope you will all write him apologies if and when that happens.

I think he has a strong chance of getting acquitted too, but I'm not writing him any apology. I didn't write one to O.J. either.

I'm glad Pete Rose is weighing in with some advice to come clean, I bet that will work well for Clemens in the end.

In cases where the feds charge lying under oath and/or perjury, 90% of the indictments handed down result in a plea before trial. Of those that go to trial, the feds' success rate is 90%. That means 99% of these cases result in conviction of some sort. I'm highly skeptical of an acquittal. Besides, what is ol' Roger going to do if I don't apologize? Fly into a 'roid rage and fling a bat shard at me?

Ummmm, I believe in the scenario you have laid out I'd be giving the benefit of the doubt to Mr Pettite, who has already acknowledged getting the hgh from the trainer Clemens paid to follow him around. The guy moved cities for Clemens. Twice. He must have been a pretty good trainer eh? A trainer who supplied Pettite and others with hgh. A trainer from whom Clemens freely admits supplied hgh to his own freakin' wife with his direct knowledge. But we're supposed to somehow believe that the 'dominant at 45' pitcher took none himself? Yeah, right. Occam's razor says Roger is going down.

I fully expect the judge to throw the bat book at him.

Right, because as we all know, "Not guilty" always equals "Didn't commit the crime."
