Via The New York Times:

A federal grand jury has indicted Roger Clemens on charges of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

The 19-page indictment charges Clemens with three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury in connection with his February 2008 testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

     I haven’t heard anything really about Griffey going to the Yankees, but wouldn’t that be nice? I think he would be a perfect fit. Ken Griffey Sr. spent 4 1/2 years with the Yankees, so Jr. would be following in his dad’s footsteps.  Griffey is now 39 years-old, and he could be a short term solution for the outfield until Ajack gets the call. He would probably sign a low end contract, ranging from $3-4 million for one season. That doesn’t sound bad at all. Junior played most of last season with a bad left knee, but he is now health after having off-season surgery. Griffey’s agent Brian Goldberg said that there are two teams in the NL and and two in the AL that they are talking to. One of those AL teams is supposedly the Seattle Mariners.

Here are Griffey’s average statistics the last 3 seasons (’06-’08) :

.260AVG  69R  125H  25HR  78RBI  2SB  .347OBP  .468SLG

You can bet on those numbers increasing in the Yankees lineup….
