Preview of Tomorrow's Congressional Hearing with Major League Baseball

Earlier today, I wrote a 12-part Question/Answer for that previews tomorrow's Congressional hearing featuring former Senator George Mitchell, Bud Selig, and Donald Fehr.

I address such topics as:
  • The types of questions likely to be asked of Mitchell, Selig, and Fehr
  • Whether there will be finger-pointing by Selig and Fehr
  • Whether Roger Clemens' name and situation will come up
  • Whether Donald Fehr will argue against new testing
  • Whether other pro sports leagues will be following the testimony
  • Whether Congress should be spending its time on the topic of steroids and baseball and how might this topic influence the 2008 Presidential Election
It's lengthy (about 2,500 words), but I hope you have a chance to check out the Q/A.

Update: Rick and I are interviewed by the Washington Times' Mark Zuckerman in his Jan. 15 article "Hearing Could Be Influential."

Update 2: On Tuesday, I wrote two additional pieces for

Tejada Facing Trouble with Investigation

MLB Could Punish Teams, Too


wasn't the hearing pushed back to mid february?

Thanks for the comment. There are actually two related hearings.

The hearing that will feature Roger Clemens, Brian McNamee, Andy Pettitte, Chuck Knoblauch, and Kirk Radomski has been pushed back to February 13.

The hearing that features former Senator George Mitchell, Bud Selig, and Donald Fehr is happening right now.
