Clemens sowing seeds of doubt

Yes, the Clemens Report (pdf here) has arrived. Penned by Clemens' management agency, the report contains no mention of "steroids" or "HGH" or any other (supposed) performance-enhancing drug, but then that's obviously the point: One doesn't need to refer to drugs to explain the Rocket's brilliant career.

Do we need 49 closely argued pages to make the point, though?

Don't get me wrong; I'm all for information, and this is a valuable document because it contains a great deal of information. But the authors of the report have a long and successful history of making the case for their clients in arbitration hearings (I worked, in a peripheral sort of way, on some of their cases in the early 1990s), and their report reads more like a one-sided arbitration case than rigorous analysis.
