This final note on the way out. Holders of Roger Clemens’ memorabilia got a reprieve today.

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner has been on trial for perjury — lying to Congress about whether he’s ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

The verdict came back this afternoon. Not guilty on all six counts against him.

An autographed Roger Clemens baseball, by the way? $233.
