WASHINGTON -- The judge presiding over Roger Clemens' perjury has declared a mistrial over evidence revealed to the jury that may have prejudiced the jury against the former baseball star.

Yankees are doing a pretty good job of beating themselves tonight.

Jays doing a pretty good job of letting this one slip away.

I mean, at some point the whole "Jo Jo Reyes is a starting pitcher nonsense has to end, right?

Also I feel it is starting to get to the point that:

What Cito is to Carlson; Farrell is to Perez.  Why is Perez always the first guy out of the pen.  Dotel is the best on the team with only 17% of his inherited runners scoring (9th in the AL), Camp and Rzepcinski are also in the top 20.  Perez...is not allowing just under 30%.

Also it is always nice when Bautista has to leave a game due to injury.

I think it probably had something to do with three of the next four hitters in the Yankee lineup batting lefty. Definitely don't want Dotel pitching in that situation.

Tough to see Bautista get hurt, especially sliding into a base when he was out by 15 feet.

That's exactly what I feared would happen... what if Bautista ever got injured/hurt.... how big a dent in the Jays' offence would that make (should it ever be that Josč would be out of the lineup?

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Bautista is the first American League player in the expansion era to lead the first half of a season in home runs, walks, slugging and on-base percentage.

Damn impressive.

I'm thinking so too. However, we should prepare to hear the usual "out of options" reasoning for why he stays.

Two straight convincing wins over the Yankees.  Feels good, .......feels real good!  :)

Snider is looking quite good in his return to the big club.  Hopefully Thames is okay.  Has anyone heard what was wrong with him last night or if he will be out of the line-up for any time.?

He's not absolutely useless for a bottom of the league team, but he's a consistently below average pitcher (ERA+ of 81).  Puts 2 men on base every other inning and walks too many guys for someone who doesn't strike anyone out.  I understand that AA wants to acquire assets for absolutely everything in the Jays organization but sometimes keeping useless players past their expiry date isn't the best course of action.  Stewart was providing similar peripheral numbers with slightly better outcome.  I can tolerate a young pitcher learning in the Majors, I really don't get this idea that you should keep them in the minors simply because a useless player is out of options.
