The Daily News is reporting today that Brian McNamee kept syringes, gauze pads and vials that he claimed were used to inject Roger Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone.
The supposed evidence was given to IRS special agent Jeff Novitzky in January. McNamee’s lawyers will talk more about this tomorrow when their client is interviewed in Washington.
Clemens said he denied PED use when interviewed by House attorneys under oath yesterday. If physical evidence can be tied directly to Clemens, he could face charges. McNamee reportedly kept the syringes, gauze pads and needles since 2000 and 2001.
Does it strike anybody else as odd that a personal trainer would hold on to such things for six years? What was his motive?
Blackmail? The memorabilia market? This bizarre chapter in baseball history won’t be ending any time soon.
