And presiding Forman, Sean, also points out that…“Roger Clemens baseball reference page was entered into evidence at his perjury trial yesterday.”
Yesterday the prosecutors brought forth yet another witness who harms their own case. The witness was Yankees GM Brian Cashman. The upshot of Cashman’s testimony: Roger Clemens was an amazing athlete with drive and determination, Brian McNamee was someone the New York Yankees did not like and did not trust and, oh, we have no evidence whatsoever that Roger Clemens ever did steroids of any kind.
...The net effect: Roger Clemens is awesome — at the end he even jovially took Rusty Hardin’s bait when asked if the Yankees could use “a 50 year-old pitcher who can still throw 90″ by smiling and saying “maybe” — and Brian McNamee is an unstrustworthy nogoodnik. This is NOT what you do when your entire case depends on (a) the jury hearing and believing Brian McNamee; and (b) believing that Roger Clemens is a liar.
