Pants No Longer on Fire

You may still think that Selig and Fehr are liars, but Congress doesn’t:

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said Tuesday that it was satisfied with the explanations provided by Commissioner Bud Selig and Donald Fehr, the executive director of the players union, about the accuracy of their testimony and that of other high-ranking baseball officials before the committee in 2005.

“Baseball and the players union provided additional information that clarified the record, and I am satisfied with their response,” the committee chairman, Henry A. Waxman, Democrat of California, said in a statement.

In June, the committee sent letters to Selig and Fehr about “apparent discrepancies” between the 2005 testimony and information in the Mitchell report that was released in December 2007, the biggest inconsistency involving a moratorium on testing in 2004.

In related news, Brian McNamee and Roger Clemens’ requests for similar absolution remain un-acted upon, mostly because Congress cannot stop laughing about it.

    I wish to call your attention to a serious error of logic.

    “You may still think that Selig and Fehr are liars, but Congress doesn’t.”

    This statement implies that Congress thinks. That has not happened since the term “sound byte” was invented.

    In other, better news, here’s to another year of Shysterball. wink
