Roger Clemens, former Major League Baseball pitcher, has challenged a U.S. request to block his defense team from making certain comments to jurors in opening statements at his retrial on perjury charges.

“The government should not be afforded this second bite of the apple to parse Mr. Clemens’s opening statement from the safe refuge of their offices after they caused a mistrial,” Rusty Hardin, a lawyer for Clemens, said in the filing.

“At defendant’s first trial, defendant presented an opening statement containing an appeal that the jurors put themselves in defendant’s shoes,” prosecutors said on March 19. “This type of argument is inappropriate and should be precluded because it invites jurors to decide the case based on bias, personal interests, and prejudice instead of the evidence and the law.”

The government’s only eyewitness to Roger Clemens‘s alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, Brian McNamee, was allowed to name other former teammates of New York Yankees who allegedly used human growth hormone.

Testifying for a sixth day in the perjury trial of Clemens, McNamee, told jurors that he offered HGH to Andy Pettitte and Chuck Knoblauch while helping Mike Stanton to obtain the drug.

“You cannot infer Mr. Clemens is guilty merely because he said other ballplayers used these substances and he provided these substances to them,” Walton told the jury.

A-Rod happy to be considered eliteAlex Rodriguez, popularly known as A-Rod, never realized how much he missed the game of baseball until he viewed the All-Star Game on television last year.

Though Rodriguez had many other things on his mind like the spring steroids scandal and his comeback from hip surgery, but it seems like he missed it nonetheless.

Andy Pettitte said A-Rod has always been in the All-Star game and it feels like this is the place where he belongs.

Rodriguez to appear at Taylor Hooton Foundation fundraiserIn what would be nothing but amusing to many, Alex Rodriguez who cheated the game of baseball and fans by making use of anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs is all set to lend a hand to a fund-raiser for the Taylor Hooton Foundation next month following a home game against Detroit.

A-Rod will make an appearance at an Aug. 19 fundraiser and will be joined by many of his ex-teammates, including pitcher Andy Pettitte.

It is worthwhile to note here that A-Rod admitted using performance enhancing drugs (PED) last year during spring training and Pettitte admitted using HGH two years ago.

  DID PETTITTE TEAM UP WITH THE PROSECUTION?

did-pettitte-team-up-with-the-prosecutionThe latest news on the Clemens case makes you wonder what Roger Clemensthought when he first heard about it. Remember Andy Pettitte? He used to be one of Clemens teammates and also one of his close friends. Their closeness was overpowered by the “closeness” Pettitte had with the scandal. Pettitte, unlike Clemens, admitted to the charges that he had been using performance enhancing drugs. Pettitte spoke in front of the Congress, in front of the news, and in front of the public, and his admission boosted the credibility of Clemens’ former trainer, Brian McNamee. McNamee was the one who charged Clemens with using steroids and human growth hormone. Pettitte saying that he used human growth hormone basically went every denial Clemens had made and made the public question the latter’s honestly.

At present, it is still unknown where the information on the meeting came from or what the meeting was about. The United States attorney’s office still chooses not to disclose any information on the issue.

  MORE WITNESSES AND EVIDENCES TO CLEMENS STEROID CASE

Roger Clemens’ name has been quite the buzz in the recent Major League Baseball news. Have you ever wondered who is the man behind all these evidences and reports that have been released? It is federal agent Jeff Novitzky who now finds himself away from the back stage where he had been working for the past year.

Novitzky serves as the bridge between the prosecutors and two major witnesses to the Clemens case — convicted anabolic steroids dealer Kirk Radomski and Clemens’ then-trainer, Brian McNamee. Novitzky has been helping in the investigations and in gathering evidences to present to the grand jury. These will help determine if Clemens has been telling the truth in saying that he did not use any performance enhancing drugs.

Two athletes had been found to use steroids based on McNamee’s accounts. These were Andy Pettitte (who has now declined a contract with the Yankees) and Chuck Knoblauch (who is currently not playing anymore). While the two have confirmed that McNamee had been providing them with performance enhancing drugs, it is still unknown when they will testify in Washington.
