The Day Of Rumor Reckoning

Well, today's the day. The Interweb has been all abuzz with rumors for days now that Roger Clemens/Johnny Damon/Gary Sheffield were about to be squashed under the steroid hammer of MLB. The Web was so a-twitter about everything that even the dinosaur print reporters noticed what was going on. (Dan Shanoff even wrote about the rumors — naming names! — on ESPN's Page 2.) This, of course, makes it less likely that an announcement will be made today; MLB doesn't like to make it look like they're being scooped by bloggers. But the sources are still standing behind their stories: Roger Clemens has tested positive for steroids. And the news will eventually get out. It always does.
