    Really, don't federal prosecutors have anything more important to worry about? They wanted to make an example out of Roger Clemens but it was Roger Clemens that make an example out of them.

    First off how can Lee Benson state that lawyers are the only ones who benefited from this fiasco they called a trial? What about him and all the other writers covering the story? Did they work for free? Didn't think so.

    Secondly the author thinks the batters Clemens faced should be the ones who testified...

    "Those testifying for the prosecution shouldn't have been sleaze-bag trainers who abused the system, it should have been batters who dug in against Clemens in the batters box..."

    Most of these guys where on some sort of performance enhancing drug as well. How are they any better than Clemens? The only victims in all of this are the fans. Pitchers cheated, batters cheated. As far as on the field competition is concerned sounds like it was a pretty even playing field. Plus arguing that Clemens performance was like a roller coaster isn't very telling of anything but the fact that he was a streaky pitcher. Without research I could have told you that simply because I followed the game.
