Was The Fix In?

Upon learning a mistrial had been declared in the Roger Clemens trial due to an error that "Any first year law student would not have made," I thought of one of the most interesting books I've read in the past few years, The Fix Is In: The Showbiz Manipulations of the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and NASCAR by Brian Tuohy. No one who reads the book will ever think of sports in the same way again.
Certainly Bud and the boys at MLB did not want any more negative publicity about raging 'roids and the game of baseball. Absolutely nothing could have been better for Bud and the owners than a mistrial. Makes one wonder...
