Interesting interview with Roger Clemens on The Big Show (WEEI) on Friday. Although he refused to talk about his legal troubles, during the interview Roger was asked if he and Andy Pettitte are friends and still talk. His response:
We don’t. My boys went out to a game quite a bit, but we don’t.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Pettitte’s testimony that Clemens used performance-enhancing drugs is likely what led to the indictment. If not for Andy’s testimony, it would have been Clemens’ word against Brian McNamee’s, and they probably wouldn’t have had a case. So I can’t say that I am surprised to hear this quote and that things played out this way, but it is certainly interesting to read about.
Obviously the two were the best of friends during Clemens’ first tenure in pinstripes and it is believed that when Pettitte went to the Astros it was a big factor in Clemens joining the team.
