Meanwhile, at the riveting Roger Clemens trial

9 Comments

Remember how a juror fell asleep at the Roger Clemens trial last week?  Yeah, happened again:

Walton then warned the remaining 15 jurors and alternates: “Stay alert. We don’t want to lose anybody else.”

But another juror, a young woman who works as a cashier at a supermarket, failed to heed that warning. She nodded off on Monday — the day McNamee, Clemens’s former trainer, began his testimony — and was dismissed by Walton on Tuesday.

Moving right a long.

Dodgers sign OF Jason Heyward to minor league deal

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Jason Heyward to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.

The 33-year-old was released by the Chicago Cubs earlier this offseason.

Heyward, who was injured at times last season, put up the worst offensive numbers of his career, batting .204 and with 10 RBIs and one home run in 137 plate appearances. However, he’s a valuable defender in the outfield.

The deal reunites Heyward with first baseman Freddie Freeman. They came up through the Atlanta Braves system and have remained friends ever since.

Heyward was a leader in the Cubs’ clubhouse, helping them win the 2016 World Series.
