Judge Rules Mistrial in Roger Clemens' Perjury Case

First, Casey Anthony.

Now, Roger Clemens. The judge in his perjury trial this morning declared a mistrial after prosecuting attorneys showed jurors evidence against his wishes.

Isn't anyone guilty of anything anymore?

Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass whether he lied about using steroids or not.  His career is done.  I don't want a single nickel of my tax dollars spent trying to figure out whether baseball players in the 80s and 90s used steroids.  Who gives a damn?  Same comment re cyclists -- why do we care if guys competing in a sport we don't follow in a foreign country used performance enhancing drugs, and why should our government use any of our money investigating this question?

SI legal analyst Michael McCann: My instinct is that the government will go for a retrial. They'll probably get it.…

Some prosecutors are guilty of sucking at their jobs?

That picture or Clemens would have been funnier if he had lowerds his ring finger and gave the court the shocker under oath.

I predict 5+ posts longer than yours about this subject RW. You're guilty of not writing an article and the book should be thrown at you.

Its a waste of time and money, who cares if he lied, he didnt ass rape some 12 y.o. boy.  And if you think roger is a bad guy for lying, the prosecuter is a bad guy too, he broke the judges rules, twice so Quintuple POW.  Where's the Beav

Sure, people are still legally guilty of stuff . . . but only after they get a fair trial.  What a stupid comment, Mr. Witt

Huh? A mistrial doesn't mean not guilty.

Clemens is guilty of being a complete, cheating tool.  As a Sox fan, I hate anyone that abondons the city ala Roger and Wade Boggs.

what about Borque, he left to get his cup

We don't begrudge Borquie for getting his cup.......the city actually threw him a parade for that one.  Even the greatness of Bobby Orr left for Chicago when I was a kid.  People leave; that's no big deal.  It's the scorched earth crap that pisses people off. Clee left last year-I wish the guy no harm.  Now if he had left and had been making fun of Warsh's 76 T.Bird, that would have been different.  Them's fightin' wyods(bayou speak)!

I have my list of the greatest Sawx from 1973-2011, and know what, Boggs and Clemens don't even smell a list with:

And guess why?  Flawed Guys.

The prosecution showed inadmissible evidence to the jury. On day 2 of the trial! After getting benchslapped in their opening arguments yesterday! Blame the judge all you want, just like all the lunatics shatted on the Anthony jury members, but both failings fall right at the feet of piss poor prosecutors. I hope they don't look to re-try Clemens and waste more time and money
