Seems the LA Times may be in the hot seat.

The big story over the weekend was a report by the LA Times stating that the names on a redacted version of papers filed in federal court during the Jason Grimsley investigation into performance enhancing drugs were Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons. Now it seems that may not necessarily be the case.

The federal prosecutor overseeing the investigation is quoted as saying there are "significant inaccuracies" in the LA Times report.  As reported:

San Francisco U.S. Attorney Kevin Ryan issued a statement Monday, saying: "In view of the recent news reports purporting to identify certain athletes whose names had been redacted from the government's search warrant filings in the Grimsley matter, and in the interests of justice, please be advised that these reports contain significant inaccuracies."

A spokesman for Ryan declined to elaborate.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Times had no immediate comment. The newspaper reported that an unidentified source with access to the document allowed the newspaper to view it, and a second source provided additional details about the document.
