      The prosecution screwed up, trying to advance evidence that was previously deemed inadmissable. Who knows, the gov counsel may have even taken a bribe to do just that.

        Probably fixed.  Baseball has had enough bad publicity.

    Maybe the prosecution were yankee fans!

      I'm a yankee fan and I hate Clemens. Always have. Never wanted to give up David Wells (a good spirited, team player, rich in character) for a self-obsessed jerk like Clemens.

    Good quote from the judge on how much this cost tax payers and some pundits weighed in on if there will be a retrial.  Looks like there will be a hearing, and then a chance for the prosecution to respond. 

    On one hand I'm tired of the steroid news, tax payer dollars going after it, but on the other, our legal system can't let people lie.  It falls apart if they don't see it through to a verdict.  Seems really dumb that prosecution showed the evidence they were told they couldn't.

      Which is why I cant out of my head the idea that it wasn't a mistake at all.

    Living close to the Balco lab we hear a lot about this and Barry Bonds.  There are some rumors the feds have tons of evidence on a huge number of major league players and they have been waiting for these high profile cases to play out.  Looks like they'll have to wait longer.
