NY Congresscritter Wants FBI Not To Bother With Clemens: That’s very nice, Rep. Weiner. Maybe if you had spoken up when Bonds got jacked around, we’d all buy it a bit more, y’know? [Sports on My Mind]

Channeling Your Inner Crash Davis: Modi rambles on baseball and steroids; you may not agree with all of it, but it’s entertaining (or was to me). [Cosellout]

Hand-Pisser Out With Hernia: As if the Mets weren’t banged up enough in spring training — Moises Alou will have surgery for a hernia. [NYT]

(Ill-advised baseball division previews will likely start here this weekend.)

Starbury Wants To Stay In The Garden: You’d have thought otherwise after the way this season has gone for him with his battles with Isiah — but apparently Stephon Marbury wants to remain a member of his hometown team. [New York Daily News]

Dirk Suspended For Cheap Shot Foul: Good. Nip that in the bud, quickly. Guess we can make that 17 straight for the Rockets after tonight’s game. [Dallas Morning News]

Tyrus Thomas May Have Mach I AI’s Views About Practice: And John Paxson has suspended him 2 games for it. Could this be a Troy Williamson situation? We’ll find out. [Chicago Tribune]

If A Team is Terrible, Is A Player Who Wants Out Really A Distraction?: Such is the conundrum of Antoine Walker wanting to be bought out by the Timberwolves, but not doing so because he doesn’t want to give that much money back.
