From Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and Miguel Tejada were among the players that a former major league pitcher accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, according to a federal agent's affidavit, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday on its Web site.

Really, did people not suspect that Clemens (built like a left tackle) and Pettitte (built like a strong safety) were on something? What's shocking to me is the relative shock. Undoubtedly, the same baseball brainiacs that want to crucify Barry Bonds will be the same ones that say, "Let's wait for all the details to emerge," with regards to Clemens in particular. What a joke.

Here's how the lead paragraph would read if I wrote the story, "In news about as shocking as the 'accidental leak' of a Paris Hilton sex tape, a report today claims that 78-year-old Roger Clemens took performance-enhancing drugs." In other words, Clemens is to performance-enhancers what Hilton is to dick: They both need a lot of it at this point in their careers to compete at a high-level.

I am Common Sense's complete lack of surprise.
