Former baseball star Roger Clemens issued a statement in response to the death of Mindy McCready, who he was once rumored to have been close with.

"This is sad news," the MLB legend said of her suicide.

Earlier this summer, Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to a grand jury over his alleged steroid use.

But the fireballer apparently is guilty of making like Brett Favre: no, he hasn't texted a photo of his penis to any young female employees. But he also doesn't know when to truly retire.

Clemens, 50, has actually signed with the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League and is expected to start for the minor league organization on Saturday.

Note to Roger Clemens: Stick to golf.

Agent Randy Hendricks hasn't said anything about his client attempting a Major League comeback if all goes well, but did say in a statement:

"His fastball was clocked at 87 mph; all of his pitches were working. He threw a three-inning simulated game after an extensive workout warm-up."

Clemens last pitched for the Yankees in 2007, finishing 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA. His 4,672 strikeouts rank third all-time and he was named to 11 All-Star Games.

He's also eligible for the Hall of Fame next year - barring a return to Major League Baseball - although voters are unlikely to vote for the man who most people believe took performance enhancing drugs for many years during the second half of his career.

The judge declared a mistrial today in Roger Clemens' perjury case after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that was previously ruled inadmissible.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said the prosecutors had made a grave error and that the baseball legend could no longer be assured a fair trial.

Walton scheduled a September 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial, but the jurors were dismissed and the case is off - for now.

Roger Clemens was indicted for perjury for allegedly lying to Congress during a 2008 investigation into performance-enhancing drug use in the sport.

He is not being charged with using drugs, per se, but for knowingly false testimony he allegedly gave involving his use of the substances years ago.

This morning, in the second day of testimony, the judge interrupted prosecutors' playing of a video from his 2008 testimony before Congress.

The jury was removed from the room. When they returned, they were dismissed, and the judge issued the following explanation of why:
