In case you missed it, Roger Clemens is having his lawyers investigate the Mitchell Report. Maybe they’ll get the same detectives O.J. Simpson has searching for the real killers.
The Rocket also plans to speak to reporters on Jan. 6, the same day his interview on 60 Minutes airs.
There are two possibilities here:
1. Clemens didn’t do it and he’s fighting the good fight to clear his name.
2. Clemens did do it but he’s going to deny, deny, deny and hope the waters are cloudy enough to still get in the Hall of Fame.
Who determines the truth? Unless Clemens sues somebody, it will be the court of public opinion. Both sides have decent cases. Brian McNamee was facing jail time if he lied to Mitchell. But McNamee was a suspicious character to begin with.
Andy Pettitte’s confession didn’t help Clemens. But Mitchell’s shaky chain of evidence raised questions.
Say this for Clemens, he’s not hiding.
