As was anticipated, former major league pitcher Roger Clemens has entered a not guilty plea in regard to the charges brought upon him for lying to Congress about his use of steroids and human growth hormone.
If convicted, Clemens faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine. For the complete story, click here.
Clemens played 24 seasons in the majors and won seven Cy Youngs, the first three of which came as a member of the Red Sox. He was also named the 1986 American League MVP.
Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, speaking on a conference call this afternoon, said his old team is “fed up” with the amount of trash talk coming from the Jets, and the Patriots have their Week 2 game against New York “circled” on their calendar.
“You better believe, the Patriots have that circled with the Jets,” Harrison said. “They hate the Jets, but they hate them even more because they’ve been coming out saying, ‘This is our division.’ ”
Harrison, currently an analyst for NBC’s “Football Night in America,” said the words coming from Jets coach Rex Ryan are the most surprising.
“It’s one thing if a player trash talks,” Harrison said. “But if a coach starts trash talking, guess what? He hasn’t made one tackle, he hasn’t caught the ball, he hasn’t scored one touchdown.”
FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick took a no-nonsense stand Monday in addressing whether or not he would play starters in the preseason finale against the Giants this Thursday night at New Meadowlands Stadium.
"I tell everybody to be ready to play every week," Belichick said. "That's what we do. Coaches control control playing time but players should be ready to play every week, regardless of the score, situation, field conditions or anything else. That's their job, that's their responsibility and that's what it is every week and that's not going to change."
Belichick was speaking just hours after Tom Brady told Dennis and Callahan on Patriots Monday on WEEI that Belichick let the players 'have it pretty good' following a sloppy 36-35 preseason loss at home to the St. Louis Rams last Thursday.

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork and defensive lineman Damione Lewis joined the Dale & Holley show on Monday morning to talk about Thursday night's disappointing loss to the Rams and what will need to be improved in the final preseason game against the Giants.
"You can't be pissed off or nothing like that because we didn't do what we're supposed to do. At the same time, we looked at the film and corrected the mistakes," Wilfork said. "Hopefully, we can go out Thursday against the Giants and put it together and move forward. It would be very encouraging if we can do that. We can't take another step back this week, and I don't think that we will. I think we're ready and we're going to see what's going to happen on Thursday."

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.
With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
