LADY AT THE BAT: Clemens & McNamee Do The Waltz

Clemens & McNamee Do The Waltz

I didn't know Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee were such good dancers! They should be on "Dancing With The Stars." Check it out:



At the advice of his lawyers Clemens was careful not to say too much during the conversation he had with McNamee last Friday. His lawyers were in the room with him, making sure he didn't say anything that would be considered witness tampering in a court of law.

McNamee tried to give the impression that he was alone in a room somewhere, ready to slit his own throat. That couldn't be further from the truth. Even if he were alone, it was obvious that he was acting on advice from counsel. According to reports he asked Clemens "What do you want me to do?" a grand total of 21 times. He knew exactly what he was doing: he was trying his best to get The Rocket to "witness tamper."

There was one thing McNamee said on the tape that, I believe, does a lot to prove Clemens's case: “All I did was what I thought was right, and I never thought it was right but I thought that I had no other choice, put it that way" [New York Times]. He never thought it was right? If that's not saying a lot, I don't know what is.

Now comes Congress. Clemens, McNamee and Pettitte all in the same room. The "juice" should really hit the fan on that day!
