The Toronto Star reports that U.S. prosecutors have picked up the hotline to Canada (instituted to avoid us stumbling into an accidental war with the barbarous Canadians) and had a search warrant executed to seize evidence from the Toronto Blue Jays in connection with the Rogers Clemens perjury case.
No word on what or how much stuff was taken, though it’s probably worth asking how much a team keeps on hand regarding people who left their employ twelve years ago. I mean, yeah, I know the law is different up there in that savage land, but I assume they have some basic document retention/destruction policies in place.
Clemens shouldn’t worry though. If his skill in choosing Canadian lawyers to represent him is as good as his skill in hiring American lawyers, his man in Toronto should be able to make it so that those Blue Jays docs never see the light of day in a U.S. Court.
