Wow. Wow. Wow. That was some compelling stuff. Lawsuit filed against Brian McNamee. Countersuit being considered. A taped phone conversation. This is normal fodder for Law & Order.
I'm sick at home today, but well enough to watch the press conference. His attorney, Rusty Hardin, seemed to speak off his mind, without notes. Clemens is now answering questions from the press.
The most compelling piece was listening to the taped phone conversation between Clemens and McNamee on January 4. While there was no "smoking gun" where McNamee said he lied, the conversation seemed to be Clemens asking McNamee to "tell the truth" and McNamee simply not answering.
At this point, I'm still on the fence. Nothing seemed to indicate if it was a circumstance where Clemens thought he was getting B-12 shots and McNamee actually give him HGH or steroids. Andy Petitte's confession seems to lean toward the notion that Clemens is guilty as well. However, to file a defamation lawsuit, that's pretty much a flat out denial.
