Clemens: 'We'll finally get our say'

Roger Clemens continued to assert his innocence regarding performance-enhancing drug use during an interview at the Houston Open golf tournament, where he is serving as a caddie for PGA Tour player Ryan Palmer in Wednesday's pro-am event.

"We've had to take it on the chin a little bit, but we'll have our chance to talk," Clemens told ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike in the Morning."

The former Red Sox, Yankees and Astros star has been charged with lying to Congress about his use of PEDs. His trial is set to start in July, but Clemens said he doesn't plan to go into hiding until then.

"We don't like it. But I'm not going to run around and hang my head. I'm going to be the person I've always been," he said.

The seven-time Cy Young Award-winner said he has not been following the Barry Bonds trial because, "I've been busy."

Clemens also touched on the Hall of Fame, noting that election is...

Bilas on D&C: 'Oddest of Final Fours'

ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas and former longtime CBS analyst Billy Packer joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the NCAA tournament.

Bilas said UConn is his pick to win "one of the oddest Final Fours." However, he noted of the tournament: "We've never been able to predict this, and people that think we can are out of their minds."

Bilas was outspoken when the field was announced in saying Virginia Commonwealth did not deserve a berth. With VCU advancing to the Final Four, Bilas noted that his criticism was directed at the tournament committee and not the team. "I just said I thought they were wrong in a couple of decisions they made," he said of committee members.

Added Bilas: "I've applauded [VCU's] play in the tournament. They have been fantastic. … It's been one of the great runs, I think, in tournament history."

Bilas played at Duke in the...

Mashup: Jets QB Ainge discusses addiction

Jets backup quarterback Erik Ainge has been living in Wellesley with his uncle, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, while trying to get a grip on his drug and alcohol addiction. Erik says he's been clean and sober for eight months, the longest such stretch since he was 11 years old. He tells the details of his troubles in a piece at ESPN. Said Erik: "During my days of using, I was a really bad drug addict. I would've made Charlie Sheen look like Miss Daisy."

Also in the news, ESPN basketball analyst Jalen Rose was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving earlier this month.

Sox still deciding where Iglesias will play

FORT MYERS, Fla. — According to team sources, the Red Sox are still debating whether to have top prospect Jose Iglesias open the 2011 season in Double-A Portland or Triple-A Pawtucket. The team wants to assign Iglesias to a level that will maximize the likelihood of his being big league ready for the 2012 campaign.

Because the shortstop -- already considered a defensive star -- lost a couple months of his 2010 season with Portland due to a broken finger, the team might want him to get more at-bats in Double-A before an early season promotion to Triple-A. That said, the team might also decide that Iglesias is better served by a challenge at a more advanced level.

For a closer look at Iglesias' development, and the Sox' decision as to where to play him, click here. For complete Red Sox coverage,...

Recchi: I'll retire if we win a Cup
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Mark Recchi, who passed Paul Coffey for 12th all-time in NHL regular-season points Tuesday, said after the game that he intends to retire if the Bruins win the Stanley Cup this season. 

"If we win a championship, I’m gone," Recchi said.

Recchi has won the Stanley Cup twice in his career, hoisting the coveted trophy as a member of the Penguins and Hurricanes. He said that he likes the idea of winning it with an Original Six team, and that if the Bruins don't win this season he could consider coming back. 

"We’ll see," Recchi said. "We’ll see if I can recover. Obviously take three weeks, a month, see if my body and my head is ready to get back in the grind physically doing the stuff I need to do to get ready for next year."
