I don’t think it was with the Yankees but one does have to ask? How was he able to be so good sooooo long?
That there are shortcuts to accomplishment, and that performance is paramount above good sportsmanship and clean competition is part of the problem (see previous post on 60 minutes clip re drugging to be smarter). But back to Clemens. When Andy Pettitte came clean….. Roger needed to – and didn’t.
So I think back to the night that I was at Yankee Stadium and saw him pitch his 300th win. Do I think he was on performance enhancing steroids that night. No.
That was the real deal. And what steroid was it? HGH? It’s marketed everywhere. But it’s the lying I guess. And we’re all guilty of that. I say Roger f’d up – but if Giambi, and Canseco can walk (and what ever happened to Barry Bonds?), what is the problem with Clemens?
Now most likely he’ll go the route of Pete Rose, forget the hall, and because for a short time he shot up to keep up with everyone else who was shooting up, he’ll go down with the likes of the aforementioned.
If there’s anything to be learned from this – I hope it is. I’m not sure what is more important. Don’t do drugs? Or don’t Lie?
Maybe they’re both equally impossible to attain.
