    Default Clemens reportedly sues trainer for defamation

    We'll see how far this goes. If McNamee backs off and recants, it could blow the entire report into the incinerator. On the other hand, if McNamee admits he shot up Clemens without his knowledge, I think some criminal action is warranted. On the flip side, I think Clemens is putting his HoF future on the line, if McNamee can prove Clemens knew the deal. If proven to be true, this isn't any different than Bonds...as Soup Nazi would say....No Hall of Fame for you !

    "Roger Clemens doesn't say what matters the most
    In professing his innocence, the baseball player's protests don't clear up what was said of him in the Mitchell Report. It's a strategy that isn't new, and isn't working".
