In a story that gets stranger by the second, Roger Clemens played a tape from an “emotional” conversation he had with former trainer Brian Mcnamee during a news conference yesterday. In it, McNamee kept telling Clemens “What do you want me to do?” but never admitted to lying to George Mitchell about Clemens’ alleged steroid use.
More from McNamee:
“I’m in your corner. I’d also like not to go to jail, too.”
Reaction: Allow me to paraphrase this quote: ‘Roger, I like you, but I had to tell Mitchell about your steroid use. They threatened me with jail.”
To me, Roger further implicated himself by playing the conversation. McNamee stands his ground and never says “You didn’t do it, Roger.” There will definitely be more to come from this story. Sports of Boston will have the updates as they develop.
