The shredded reputation of Clemens remains in limbo after last week’s mistrial in the perjury case against one of baseball’s all-time greats.

“I think there’s certainly some performance-enhancing drug fatigue,” said Charles Yesalis, a professor at Penn State and longtime outspoken critic of PED abuse.

“This prosecution in its zeal to go after Barry Bonds will forgive anybody anything including perjury and mortgage fraud if that person is willing to say something bad about Barry Bonds,” Bonds attorney Cristina Arguedas said.
