With friends like Andy Pettitte, Roger Clemens doesn’t need enemies.
It had to sting when Pettitte, Clemens’ friend and ex-teammate told investigators that Clemens talked about taking human growth hormone ten years ago. Clemens and Pettitte were two of the biggest names mentioned in the Mitchell Report released last year. Clemens, one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball history, could face criminal charges if the allegations about his use of Human Growth Hormone and steroids are true.
Clemens’ response to Pettitte’s comments was that Pettitte “misremembers” the conversation. Really? Maybe Pettitte just has a knack for mishearing his old friend Roger. Here’s how the conversation probably went down:
Clemens: “Great game Andy, you wanna grab a beer?”
Pettitte: “You’re using human growth hormone?”
Clemens: “What? No, anyway, I guess I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Pettitte: “You did how much blow?”
Clemens: “This is the worst friendship ever.”
