I was able to hear a good portion of the wild show put on in Washington today as Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee testified in front of a congressional committee. Pretty much the only thing that is sure is that at least one of these guys is lying. Maybe both.

The thing that I keep coming back to is the fact that McNamee told the truth about injecting Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch with performance enhancers (both admitted to that in their depositions to Congress). Why would he tell the truth about them and lie about Roger, knowing that a lie could land him in jail? It just makes no sense. It seems that Roger has more incentive to lie than McNamee does.

Andy Pettitte really threw Roger under the bus. He said in an affidavit that Roger told him in 1999 or 2000 that he had used HGH. When pressed on this, Roger claimed that Pettitte misheard and misremembered (I'm pretty sure that's not a word) what he had said. Roger's denials seemed especially hollow here. I can't believe that Pettitte wouldn't remember Clemens telling him he had used performance enhancing drugs.

I thought both these guys came out looking bad. Even Clemens wife Debbie was dragged into the muck, as she apparently took HGH as well. At least it explains this:

A woman who has had four kids looks like that? Must have been something artificial going on.
