And so it ####### begins…
As a Hall of Fame voter, I cast ballots for players with Cooperstown credentials unless I am absolutely sure they took performance-enhancing drugs.
I don’t see Clemens getting my vote, no matter what his lawyers were able to accomplish in the legal arena.
...I still believe Clemens took performance-enhancing drugs, but I don’t fault the jury for letting him off. I just believe Clemens’ well-paid legal team beat the government.
First, Clemens’ lawyers got Andy Pettitte to say that, after all these years, he really couldn’t be sure that Clemens once told him he had injected HGH. When Pettitte backed down off his initial statements, the government fell behind.
for his generous support.
