There is something sad about this Roger Clemens, bloated and desperate, clinging with white knuckles to a legacy he can't possibly keep.
Granted, he is mostly just trying to keep himself out of prison at this point. He has to fight that fight. But it began with his legacy. Against a lot of evidence to the contrary, he wanted us all to believe The Rocket had not been artificially propelled, and he was so unconvincing in front of Congress that two years ago a federal grand jury charged him with six felonies.
Clemens was too self-involved, too stubborn, too short-sighted to see that the Steroid Era was just that -- an entire era. It wasn't just about him. If you were a powerful player for a long time, and you played between the late 80s and the mid-aughts, everybody was already suspicious of you.

WASHINGTON -- Among the 29 questions the Roger Clemens jury wanted to ask the pitcher's chief accuser, Brian McNamee, one cut to the heart of the case. "Why should we believe you when you have shown so many inconsistencies in your testimonies?" "I won't ask that," U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton declared during a bench conference with trial attorneys...
The judge in the Roger Clemens perjury case ruled Thursday that the government can call former major leaguer David Segui and another man to testify about conversations they had with Clemens' chief accuser, Brian McNamee.

Former major leaguer David Segui may be required to testify in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, against his wishes. Prosecutors want Segui to speak about a 2001 conservation he had with Clemens' former strength coach, Brian McNamee.

Is it me or has the Roger Clemens perjury trial dragged on like the slowest episode of “Law & Order” ever? I’m talking pre-Jerry Orbach slow, man. Nonetheless, things might have just gotten interesting. Prosecutors want to drag former major leaguer David Segui in to corroborate Brian McNamee’s testimony. Former Oriole Segui is so reluctant to testify that Judge Walton...
At least one of the jurors in the Roger Clemens perjury trial
has some concerns about a key witness' credibility.
