Wade Boggs, David Cone could testify on Roger Clemens’ behalf

Wade Boggs Devil Rays

While today has been touted as the beginning of the Roger Clemens trial, there really isn’t much going on until next week. Why? Jury selection mostly, which began today, is supposed to last several days thanks in part to an extensive questionnaire. Eh, it happens.

More interesting to me is Rusty Hardin, Clemens’ terrible awful yet highly entertaining lawyer, who revealed today that he may call Wade Boggs and David Cone as witnesses. ¬†Each were teammates of Clemens. One wonders what possible relevant information they’d have seeing as though they were never called in connection with any of the previous steroids hearings.

But hey, everyone could use a good character witness, right?

    Anyone with Clemens’ money that’s facing jail time, and hires a guy named “Rusty” to defend him is ipso facto non compos mentis> and should be adjudged incompetent to stand trial. Seriously, what material and relevant facts could Boggs and Cone present. None? Expert opinion? Character witnesses? OMG Rusty is going to put Roger’ character in issue? File this under “pigs get fat – hogs get slaughtered.”

    As I wrote yesterday, the man is Roger Clemens. He cannot tell a lie. He is as pure as the driven snow. Nobody injected illegal drugs into the posterior of any member of the Clemens family including Mrs. Clemens. Clemens did not have sex or an affair with a teenaged country singer. Clemens did not throw a bat at that man, Mr. Piazza. Mr. Hardin has his client’s best interests at heart and is not out to milk Mr. Clemens for all he can get.. I believe in Clemens just as much as I believe in that nice man from Queens who just sold me the Brooklin Bridge and also tossed in a free copy of Johnny Maestro’s greatest hits.

    Boggs should come riding into court on the back of a police horse.

      Bogs should pull out some of the leather gear from his Margo Adams days and come riding into court on her. If’s he’s lost the little black mask, I would be happy to send him one from the shop down the road.

        He’d have to be riding Margo one-handed because he’d be holding a piece of chicken with the other.
