Grand Jury in Clemens Case

In a time of recession and war, it’s a bit jarring to return to the issue of steroids in sports, but here goes: The fate of Roger Clemens, the pitcher under investigation for lying to a House committee about his use of performance-enhancing drugs, is in the hands of a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C. The witnesses expected to testify will be familiar to anyone following the Clemens Sturm und Drang: Clemens’ trainer Brian McNamee; Kirk Radomski, who alleged supplied drugs to Clemens through McNamee; perhaps even Clemens’ former Yankee teammate Andy Pettitte. Clemens told a House committee last year: “I have never taken steroids or HGH.”
