Oh No!

Dan's take on the story that you cannot shake.

Fearless Dan concludes that both McNamee and Clemens lied, that both had bad performances. Bold stuff you won't get anywhere else.

And Dan manages to get this wrong:

"Pettitte's deposition shreds Clemens's story. Under oath, Pettitte told Congress that Clemens admitted using HGH. Twice. Pettitte said he relayed the conversations to his wife. Mrs. Pettitte recalls the conversations and said so in her affidavit.

Well, as Dan's colleagues over at the NYT reported Pettitte testified about a single conversation with Clemens, which Roger later disputed according to the affidavit.

I don't know if 'colleagues' is the right word for the long-term. The NYT is probably looking for someone willing to trade their stake in the Boston Globe for a couple Beanie Babies.

The title of Dan's piece was, 'Performances weren't enhanced by testimony.' That is a pretty neat, seeing that the issue is all about 'performance-enhancing drugs.' Did any of you catch that bit of cleverness? Anyone...? Bueller...? Wow.

I am continually amazed at the sheer genius and Mensa-like qualities of Shank and others at the globe. Impressive.
