Clemens' lawyer: 'Roger didn't use that stuff'

Rusty Hardin, the lawyer for Roger Clemens, said in an interview on The Big Show that his client never used steroids or performance-enhancing drugs.

"No one ever wanted to listen to us: Roger didn't do this," Hardin said. "I always said, all the way back to Congress … I've gone from being the worst lawyer in America and the favorite punching boy of ESPN and others, but always because they thought he was guilty. The fact was, we knew, Roger didn't use that stuff. The only way we were able to convince people -- it wasn't going to be press conferences, it was going to be to let 12 citizens hear the evidence. These people in less than 10 hours, they didn't just find him not guilty. They told us afterwards they were convinced he didn't use this stuff and it was outrageous what the government did. It took four a half years to get there."

Clemens was acquitted on Monday on all six counts of perjury, obstruction of Congress and...

Lineup: Middlebrooks in, Youkilis sits

With the Red Sox facing the Braves and right-hander Jair Jurrgens, Will Middlebrooks -- fresh off a 3-for-4 game in which he drove in four runs and hit his eighth homer -- is in the lineup and batting seventh. Kevin Youkilis, meanwhile, is out of the lineup for a second straight game, the first time since his return from the disabled list on May 22. The Sox, in fact, will have the same lineup that they featured for their 6-5 victory on Thursday against the Marlins.

Jon Lester will be on the mound for the Sox, looking to build on his first win in nearly a month in his most recent outing in Chicago last Saturday. He will face Jurrgens (0-2, 9.37 ERA), who will be making his first start back in the majors since April 23 following a demotion due to his early-season struggles. For complete batter vs. pitcher information, ...

Bruins: Thomas has waived no-trade clause
By: WEEI

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas has waived his no-movement clause, according to GM Peter Chiarelli, which could create an opportunity for Boston to deal the veteran -- Thomas' NMC was set to expire on July 1. According to the Bruins, teams have already inquired about his availability. The 38-year-old Thomas has said he will sit out for the 2012-13 season, citing a desire to put his "time and energies into those areas and relationships" he has "neglected."

Millar: I'd take Youk over Middlebrooks
By: WEEI

Despite Kevin Youkilis’ subpar performance this season and multiple trade rumors, former Red Sox infielder and current MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar said he’d take Youkilis over rookie Will Middlebrooks.

“If [Youkilis] is healthy, I do want him in pressure situations over Will Middlebrooks. That’s my opinion,” Millar said. “Now, Will’s doing a great job right now, don’t get me wrong. But I’m telling you, [a] healthy Youkilis gives me the [important] type of at-bats, ninth inning against the Yankees in September, period.”

Millar applied the same logic to the impending position battle in the outfield between regular Carl Crawford and call-up Daniel Nava. Nava took Crawford’s place in the outfield after Crawford went down with an injury and has filled in well.

“You own the Red Sox and you invest in [Crawford] for $140 million,...
