Theater of the absurd

I'm not watching the Roger Clemens-Brian McNamee showdown on Capitol Hill.

Instead I'm following along on Jayson Stark's blog. I did speak to Times sports editor Scott Ferrell as he was watching along and we both were shaking our heads.

This is the ultimate no-win situation for anyone involved not named Andy Pettitte. After hearing some of the stories, I'm very surprised the entire roster of the 1999-2001 Yankees weren't subpoenaed by Congress.

Clemens may get what he wants -- taking McNamee down, but The Rocket will go down as well. Perhaps when this never-ending day of testimony wraps up, it will mark the end of baseball's self-imposed flagellation at the hands of Congress.
