Andy Pettitte came out and admitted that he took HGH, corroborating the story former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee told George Mitchell.

Good for him. As Pettitte's teammate Jason Giambi found out, people are quite willing to forgive ballplayers for these kinds of ethical violations when they own up and take responsibility for their actions. People aren't going to hold this against Pettitte long term. They'll see him as a guy screwed up, but stood up and admitted it.

I'm wondering what this will do to Roger Clemens ongoing denials of his steroid use. Pettitte's admission enhances McNamee's credibility, which Clemens lawyer had been attacking. Roger is going to have to say something in the next few days. It will be interesting to see what route he takes when he finally addresses this in person.
