    it is beyond belief that the prosecution effed this up so transparently. it'll serve 'em right if judge doesn't allow a do-over trial when they reconvene.

    this was so blatant, as the espn law expert said. a blunder a first-year law student wouldn't make. geez, if prosecutions screw up trials for 'regular folk' at the rate they do 'celebrity trials,' it's s wonder jails are so overfilled.

    my initial reaction: team clemens has bribed the prosecution in exchange for front row seats at his hof induction. 'cept voting writers aren't as apt to take a dive for rahjah the way the prosecution did.

    The American people don't really need a second trial on this ... do they?

    Maybe not the people ... but the feds seem so hell-bent on making examples out of ballplayers of late, as Joaquin Andjular said, youneverknow.

    This is pretty fucking funny:

    Michael Wolff is not Ben Walker, and he's not a baseball expert either.

    Seeing fakes tortured in public is always a treat.

    This has been a really swell month for the American judicial system.

    There wasn't really a first trial. If he was named Roger Smith, I think that there would be little doubt that there would be a retrial

    Why? I'm just failing to see why it's so important that this trial take place, outside of judicial grandstanding.
