Mitchell Report Names Names - Including Roger Clemens

Published 14 December 07 08:02 AM | scoutmom

The long awaited, much-speculated on Mitchell Report - all 409 pages of it - has finally been released.  And, as promised, it names names.   And some of them are pretty big.  In fact, there is at least one All Star from every position in baseball. 

One of the biggest newly released?  Roger "The Rocket" Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner.  In nearly nine pages of information, Clemens was singled out.   Much of that information came from former New York Yankees major league strength and conditioning coach Brian McNamee.

Now, granted, not everyone one of the guys named used steroids.  No, some were a bit more clever and they are alleged to have used HGH - human growth hormone.   While steroids are detectable in a urine test, HGH requires a blood test.  And while some of the more than 80 players named were listed as users, others were buyers.

As for Clemens, "according to McNamee, from the time that McNamee injected Clemens with Winstrol through the end of the 1998 season, Clemens' performance showed remarkable improvement," it stated in the report.   "During this period of improved performance, Clemens told McNamee that the steroids 'had a pretty good effect' on him."

Investigators were also told by McNamee that "during the middle of the 2000 season, Clemens made it clear that he was ready to use steroids again. During the latter part of the regular season, McNamee injected Clemens in the buttocks four to six times with testosterone from a bottle labeled either Sustanon 250 or Deca-Durabolin."

There will be more denials.  More "explanations", more "but I took it for a legitimate condition", more "I had NO idea" statements from some of these guys.  Whatever.   The bottom line is it was illegal, it was dangerous, and it was just plain STUPID.
