Earlier today, we blogged about David Wells criticizing Roger Clemens for the travel provisions in his contract.
Before he worked out at the University of Kentucky today, Clemens responded.
“It sure is funny to hear the comments from my ex-teammates,” he said. “I won’t mention names. He’s trying to critique my season or the game of baseball. It’s pretty comical to say the things they did. They might have to look into the mirror a little bit.”
Back when both were Yankees, Clemens used to refer to Wells as “Eli.”
Asked why, Clemens said, “Because when he’s talking, he’s lying.”
