Now Batting, Henry Waxman
Shucks. We were hoping to see a potential pitcher's duel next week but a House committee has postponed a day of scheduled testimony from two of Major League Baseball's best pitchers accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs: Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte.
Clemens and Pettitte, close friends who have spent much of their careers with the New York Yankees, along Brian McNamee, Kirk Radomski and Chuck Knoblauch, are now scheduled to appear before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Feb. 13. The committee and lawyers agreed to wait until after the sentencing of Kirk Radomski, the former Mets clubhouse attendant who is cooperating with former Sen. George Mitchell's steroid probe.
In a joint statement released yesterday, Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and ranking member Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), said, "Postponing the hearing will provide additional time to coordinate the Committee's investigation with the Justice Department's ongoing efforts."
But the committee still plans to hold a hearing on Tuesday with testimony from George Mitchell himself, Baseball commissioner Bud Selig and Major League Baseball Players Association chief Don Fehr.
