Clemens and Pettitte named by Mitchell?

There are scattered reports that Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte will be among those named by the Mitchell Report. Their names have come up in the past based on their ties to trainer Brian McNamee.

McNamee is a personal trainer who was employed by the Yankees for several years at the insistence of Clemens. It is believed that McNamee spoke to Mitchell.

While there is little doubt that many, many players were using performance-enhancing drugs and probably still are, the methods of Mitchell and his staff and their sources demand much scrutiny.

I suspect many of those names will plead ignorance or deny their involvement all together. Unless Mitchell has failed drug tests or some sort of other proof, such charges are hard to make stick.

It also will be interesting to see whether any Red Sox are named. If not, the report’s credibility will take a hit.
