Chatter: Mark Zuckerman and Thom Loverro speculate on which Nationals pitcher will start Opening Night at the new ballpark.

TWT FIVE PURPORTED LIES BY ROGER CLEMENS

1. I have never taken steroids or human growth hormone. Brian McNamee said he injected him with performance enhancing drugs on a number of occasions. And Andy Pettitte says he spoke to Clemens about his use of HGH.

2. “He injected me with lidocaine and B-12. Physicians say it’s unusual for someone to be injected with lidocaine or B-12 unless he was under anaesthesia and a specialist administered the injection.

3. I was never at a party at Jose Canseco’s house. Clemens’ nanny told members of a congressional committee that she saw him there. McNamee, meanwhile, says he has a photo of Clemens at the party.

4. I was never told that Sen. Mitchell wanted to speak to me. Pettitte, who has the same agents, testified he was made aware of former Sen. George Mitchell’s inquiry.

5. All trainers gave me shots. Clemens says he received shots from various trainers over the years, but this is contrary to teams’ policies, which require doctors to perform all injections.

WEEKEND PREVIEW WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN SPORTS

SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL

OK, so maybe the best guys play three innings and sit. But it’s still a nice reminder that Opening Day is coming soon.

GEORGETOWN AT MARQUETTE

The Hoyas should get a test tomorrow against the Golden Eagles, who have won five in a row and have just one loss at home.

UAW DODGE 400

If you’re a betting man, put all your money down Sunday on Jimmie Johnson, who has won the last three races at Las Vegas.

KENTUCKY AT TENNESSEE

After falling to Vanderbilt, the No. 1 Volunteers look to rebound Sunday against the conference rival Wildcats. Kentucky, meanwhile, needs a big win to avoid missing the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1991.

MAVERICKS AT LAKERS

The last time these two teams played, Kobe Bryant scored 40 points and the Lakers lost anyway. The Mavericks, who visit Los Angeles on Sunday, have since added Jason Kidd.
