View from the Monster: All-Star Special Edition Part I

With the All-Star break upon us, now is a good time to take a look at how 2008 has shaped up for our beloved Red Sox. As we all know, this team led the East most of last year and coasted through the playoff, punctuated by the sweep over the surprising Rockies. To repeat in […]

View from the Monster 5-13

The Red Sox got the long 10-game road trip started with a visit to the Tigers for four games. The series featured very good starting pitching for the Red Sox in three of the games, which was the key to the series. As the Sox starters were able to stifle the Detroit lineup, it allowed […]

Report: Man Has Photo of Clemens at Canseco Party

A photo-shopped image of Roger Clemens, Mo Vaughn, and Jose Canseco during their days with the Red Sox. A man told the NY Daily News that he has a photo of Roger Clemens with other MLB players at Jose Canseco’s infamous party in 1998. The man, then 11, took the picture and has held on […]

McNamee Lawyer: Bush Could Pardon Clemens

Brian McNamee’s lawyer may have overstepped his bounds when he alleged that President George W. Bush could pardon Roger Clemens should The Rocket be indicted. Richard Emery, McNamee’s lawyer, said that Republicans at the Congressional hearing were more harsh on McNamee than Clemens because Clemens is a friend of the Bush family. “It would be […]

Strike Three for Clemens

The plan was good and it almost worked…until Roger opened his mouth. On a day where everything could have worked perfectly, Roger Clemens simply crashed and burned. Let me set the record straight: after watching the whole process before the Congress, I’m convinced: Clemens is a liar. Bad, that was too bad to see one […]

Standing Behind Clemens

For as long as I can remember watching Red Sox baseball, I only had room in my heart for one player. Whenever a player leaves the Sox, I usually switch my spotlight to another. In the past, this spot has been held by former outfielder Trot Nixon and looks to be soon taken over by […]

Roger Clemens’ Fight Challenges MLB’s Credibility

By denying and totally refuting anything that Brian McNamee has said, Roger Clemens is challenging the very foundation of the Mitchell Report. McNamee provided a lot of information that became public from the Mitchell Report, including testimony about Roger Clemens, Chuck Knoblauch, and Andy Pettitte. If McNamee is lying then the Mitchell Report loses a […]

Brian McNamee Lied Before Wednesday’s Hearings

Brian McNamee apparently lied before in a previous criminal trial out of Florida. This case was undisclosed at Congress but should be taken with a grain of salt. One of the congressmen also alluded to several inconsistencies with McNamee’s testimony and concluded that McNamee lied initially to federal investigators when he withheld evidence of Clemens’ […]

The Debate Over Debbie Clemens and HGH

Here’s another sticking point that really hurts Roger Clemens if true. Clemens alleged initially when being questioned that he never ever talked about steroids or HGH with Brian McNamee. Later in the questioning he said that his wife was injected by Brian McNamee without his discretion. His wife complained of an uncomfortable pain and a […]

Was Roger Clemens at Jose Canseco’s House Party in 1998?

One thing that is really different in the testimonies of Brian McNamee and Roger Clemens is whether Roger Clemens attended a 3-day house party at Jose Canseco’s house during a 3-game series (June 8-10) between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Florida Marlins in 1998. McNamee swears he saw Roger, Roger’s wife, Roger’s nanny, and […]

Clemens: Andy Pettitte “Misremembered”

Roger Clemens testified that Andy Pettitte did not correctly recall a conversation they had in 1999-2000 about HGH use. Pettitte and his wife both testified that Clemens told Pettitte he used HGH and steroids. Pettitte later asked Clemens following Congressional hearings about steroids in baseball in 2005 what Clemens thought of his use. Clemens then […]

Clemens On the Hot Seat

Clemens is being grilled by congress today on allegations of steroid and HGH use. Clemens has been shown evidence that he has given conflicting answers to many questions, including when Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) brought up that Clemens had given two different answers on why he didn’t speak to the Mitchell Report. Clemens said on “60 […]

Pettitte Tells Congress Clemens Used HGH

Andy Pettitte reportedly told Congress in his private depostion that Roger Clemens had used HGH. Apparently, Clemens told Pettitte he used Human Growth Hormone 10 years ago. Due to his testimony, Pettitte was excused from the public hearings today, along with Chuck Knoblauch and steroid dealer Kirk Radomski. Clemens and Brian McNamee will still be […]

John Rocker Adds to Steroids Controversy

Former major league pitcher John Rocker has come out publicly against Bug Selig and Major League Baseball. On an Atlanta radio station, Rocker said that he had taken steroids in 2000 and Bud Selig was well aware of it and did nothing to stop it. He also said Selig is often seen in a glorious […]

McNamee Claims to Have Physical Evidence Against Clemens

Brian McNamee handed over vials, syringes, and gauze pads to federal investigators, claiming he now has tangible evidence that Roger Clemens took steroids and HGH. Sources told ESPN that the evidence was delivered sometime in early January. The samples are said to have Clemens blood and traces of the illegal substances. If found to be […]
