Truth & Rumors
Feds ask more Clemens questions
Federal agents have questioned another gym owner in Texas as part of their perjury investigation of Roger Clemens. Kelly Blair, the owner of 1-on-1 Elite Personal Fitness in Pasadena, said Tuesday that he met with two F.B.I. agents in late March at his home. He said the agents questioned him about whether he had ever given Clemens performance-enhancing drugs and his connections to several other baseball players. Blair has been linked in published reports to providing Andy Pettitte's father, Tom, with human growth hormone. Tom Pettitte has said he has taken H.G.H. to treat health problems. (New York Times)
Taylor pressures Miami for trade
Jason Taylor is planning a boycott of team training, the Miami Dolphins announced, leading to speculation that he wants to play elsewhere. Although coach Tony Sparano would not elaborate, Taylor's intentions are clear, if still publicly unspoken: One of the most popular players in team history wants out of Miami. And he's willing to subject himself to what could amount to more than $300,000 in fines -- and perhaps a premature retirement -- if he doesn't get his way. (Miami Herald)
Heat may pass on Beasley
Heat president Pat Riley created a buzz after Tuesday night's draft lottery when he strongly suggested Miami would trade the pick if the right deal came along. At least five lottery teams picking behind the Heat -- including Seattle, Memphis, New York, New Jersey and Sacramento -- would have interest in acquiring Michael Beasley if the Heat is serious about making a potential draft-day trade.
