In the ongoing saga that has become Roger Clemens vs former trainer Brian McNamee, “new shit has come to light.” Clemens, who on January 6th filed a defamation suit against McNamee, is now surrounded by speculation of a decade long affair with country music artist Mindy McCready. According to McNamee’s attorney:
“When you sue for defamation, you put your whole reputation in the community at issue. Anything is fair game, including his claim of sanctimonious purity.”
Clemens will hold that McCready has been nothing more than “a close family friend.” Either way, this situation cannot play out to anything better than a game of he said/she said. The circus that surrounds Clemens seems to gain more and more dancing bears as the months pass, and you can flat forget any notion of Clemens ever going to baseball’s Hall Of Fame.
The only sensible action at this point would be for Clemens to drop the defamation case. Without such an action, Clemens’ family is going to be unfairly and mercilessly tortured by a sex hungry media.
