Roger Clemens can get the Mitchell Report notes

Roger Clemens’ perjury trial is coming up soon, and one of the little skirmishes in advance of it is whether Clemens would be allowed access to the notes of the investigators who helped put together the Mitchell Report. Today a judge ruled that, yep, he can have access to them.

The specific notes in question are the ones dealing with the questioning of steroids dealer Kirk Radomski and Clemens’ trainer Brian McNamee, each of whom said that they provided drugs to Clemens. Presumably he wants to be able to cast doubt on their stories and use it to bolster his own contentions.

No word on whether or not he’ll get to see the note that says “this whole investigation was half-assed from the start in an effort to make it look like Major League Baseball was doing something about steroids; it really only caught the low-hanging fruit of the PED epidemic and, in the end, told us very little.”

At least I assume that note will be in there somewhere.

    And which reporter will be allowed to leak them and make Mitchell, MLB and lawyers look (even more) foolish? I assume the Daily News will not make the list.

    If they can get a conviction against Bonds for lying under oath when he admitted to using steroids & didn’t lie at all then what are they going to do to Clemens? Roger you fool. Your ego cost you the hall of fame & no maybe will cost you time in jail.

    SAD.

    Good to see Joe Pesci aboard helping out the defence.

    Not sure if it’s admissable as evidence, but Skidmark definitely did show all the telltale signs of roid rage.

    I can tell you what the Mitchell notes said without seeing them

    Mitchell: “Holy crap- I can’t believe Bud Selig was stupid enough to put someone who is on the Board of Directors of a MLB team in charge of the steroid investigation. Okay, time to steer the evidence away from the Red Sox and make the two New York teams look like they made a deal with Satan. Woo Hoo! I love being me!!!”

    Life would have been so much easier (and less expensive) the past 5 years Roger if you’d just come clean and stopped making a horse’s ass out of yourself at every turn.

    Gotta love the silly anti-Clemens rants, you see them all the time and anyone with a ounce of common sense knows what its all about. One word for ya, Jealousy! Case closed
