Bronx Zoo All Over Again

With Roger Clemens headed to Capitol Hill, we'll be seeing a media circus from now until the whole thing is over, which may take several months.

I agree with Buster Olney, that no matter what happens, Clemens's reputation is toast. And the way the Hall of Fame voters are treating Mark McGwire, there's a good chance that Clemens will not be voted into the HOF.

So Pettitte may get dragged into the whole mess, and who knows who else will be involved.

Although Clemens is done with baseball, it'll be interesting to see if this effects the Junkees in '08. I'm not a big believer in the idea that this off-the-field distraction will lead to Yankee losses, but one never knows.

What a way to start the Hank Steinbrenner era!
