Roger Clemens’ gal pal in good conditionCountry singer Mindy McCready, ex-gal pal of baseball slugger Roger Clemens, was admitted to Cape Coral hospital’s emergency department.

The 34-year old, who has many hit singles to her credit, including the recent release of her latest album, “I’m Still Here,” and a successful stint on VH1′s “Celebrity Rehab,” is now in good condition.

McCready’s attorney James Moon said admission to the hospital was because of a bad reaction to a pain reliever and all reports of suicide or overdosing were “irresponsible”.

  Roger Clemens – Doped Out an Dropped Out in 2008

debbie_clemens-steroidsThe year 2008 is definitely not a good one for Roger Clemens.

He started the year filing a defamation suit against his former strength coach Brian McNamee. McNamee testified that he had injected the seven-time Cy Young awardee during the 1998, 2000, and 2001 seasons with the anabolic steroid Winstrol.

Then in April, New York Daily News revealed Clemens’ illicit affair with country music star Mindy McCready. Their 10-year affair allegedly commenced when the singer was only 15 years old. McCready has her own share of the limelight when she was rushed to the hospital in December for another suicide attempt.

Also occurring on December 2008, McNamee filed a claim in Queens Supreme Court preserving the right to sue Clemens for defamation.
Now, the latest on Clemens is that his once stellar name is being dropped from the Roger Clemens Institute for Sports Medicine, according to the announcement of the Houston’s Memorial Hermann Medical Center. And to think Clemens donated $3 million to Memorial Hermann for its pediatric wing, that news could be a huge devastation to Clemens.

The statement reads: “To better reflect its commitment to all sports and athletes, the facility will transition to become known as the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Institute, effective Jan. 1, 2009. The move reflects a desire to promote the broad range of sports medicine services and programs offered by Memorial Hermann across the greater Houston area.”

It is the latest headache for Clemens, who saw his reputation and legacy hammered this year following the release of baseball’s Mitchell Report on Dec. 13, 2007, in which Clemens’ former trainer Brian McNamee claimed he injected the pitcher with steroids and human growth hormone several times between 1998 and 2001.
Last month, the Daily News reported that Clemens had been asked to end his involvement with the Giff Nielsen Day of Golf for Kids charity tournament he had hosted the previous four years with Nielsen, the Houston broadcaster and former Oilers quarterback.

“He is dealing with some tough issues,” Nielsen told The News then. “He is dealing with something that is very challenging. The accusations against him are serious. It just made sense to say go take care of these issues and we will revisit the relationship later, when it makes sense. He was very receptive. He was very understanding.”

Clemens is still under investigation by the Justice Department and FBI for perjury after he testified before Congress in February that he never used performance-enhancing drugs. He has continued to deny McNamee’s claims. Clemens filed a defamation suit against McNamee on Jan. 6 in the Southern District of Texas. Several months later, the News exposed his lengthy extramarital relationship with country singer Mindy McCready as well as affairs he had with several other women.

  Roger Clemens’ affair with steroids, young girls, and defamation suits

clemensmccready-steroidsRoger Clemens’ alleged romantic and controversial fling, country singer Mindy McCready, had another suicide attempt according to a report by the Boston Herald.

Police reported that the singer cut her wrists and took several pills in an apparent suicide attempt on Dec.17. She was rushed to the hospital after her brother discovered her lying bloodied in her bed.

McCready has two previous attempts to take her own life.

From Boston Herald:

McCready, 33, has had one No. 1 hit, “Guys Do It All the Time”, in 1996. She has struggled in recent years with legal and personal problems that included previous suicide attempts.

According to the police report, McCready called her mother and told her “she had seen her angel baby.” The report did not explain the reference, but it was enough to prompt the mother to call Timothy McCready, 29, who lives with his sister, to check on her.

He told police he found her stumbling in the kitchen but apparently OK. She went back to her room and he went back to his. He went to check on her again after he woke up later that morning and found she had cut her wrists and taken the pills.

“Malinda was not very alert and her bed had blood on it,” the report states, using McCready’s given first name.

In October, the 33-year-old was released from jail in Tennessee after serving about 30 days for violating probation on a 2004 drug charge. She only had to serve about half of her 60-day sentence because of credits she received for good behavior and doing janitorial work in the jail, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department said.

She was accused in June of falsifying her community service records and charged with violating her probation. McCready received a suspended three-year sentence in 2004 for fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers.

The New York Daily News has reported in April 2008 that McCready and Clemens had a romantic relationship which started when the singer was only 15 years old. The 44-year-old slugger  denied the report, claiming that they were involved only at a platonic level. Clemens described McCready as a “close family friend”. McCready, however, said they had a sexual relationship.

The blond singer later on denied in a TV interview that their affair began when she was only 15, stating in vague terms that they had sexual relationship “several years later”.

Clemens is currently embroiled in another controversy and this one is in connection with his alleged affair with anabolic steroids and human growth hormone.

The former Yankees pitcher was mentioned 82 times in the Mitchell Report, an independent investigation in the use of performance-enhancing drugs in the Major League Baseball.

In January this year, he filed a defamation suit against his accuser, his former friend and trainer Brian McNamee. McNamee told investigators that he had personally injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone.

This month, McNamee filed a counter suit, claiming Clemens libeled and slandered him folllowing the release of the Mitchell Report.

  George Mitchell thinks his report reduced usage of PEDs in baseball

mitchell_steroid_reportBy next month, the Mitchell Report will be a year old.

In his interview with AP, George J. Mitchell, the former Democratic senator who headed the investigation on the use of anabolic steroids and human growth hormone in baseball, thinks something positive came out of that inquiry. He said doping in the Major League decreased as a result of the report.

“The impression I get is that it’s had a significant impact of reducing usage, although that still remains very difficult to measure with any complete precision,” Mitchell said.

Mitchell, who now chairs an international law firm and works as the chancellor to a university in Northern Ireland, has some regrets when it comes to the report’s impact on the lives of the people who got implicated in the drug scandal.

“Obviously as a human being, I regret and don’t take pleasure in someone else’s misfortune, whether I have any relationship to it or not,” Mitchell said. “What we did was to try to meet the obligation which we’d undertaken, and we did so. Each player involved made his decision on how to respond.”

The 20-month and 409-page investigative report have named 89 players in all, including Roger Clemens whom the AP article tagged as “the report’s biggest loser”.

Headed to the Hall of Fame with 354 wins before the Mitchell Report, his Cooperstown chances deteriorated when Mitchell made public McNamee’s allegations that the seven-time Cy Young Award winner had used steroids and human growth hormone before they were banned. It led to a high-profile congressional hearing in February in which McNamee accused Clemens’ wife, Debbie, of using HGH, and the Department of Justice was asked to investigate whether the pitcher lied when he denied McNamee’s account.

In addition, Clemens sued McNamee for defamation, a case still in its early stages. In the fallout from the suit, the New York Daily News reported Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was 15. Clemens denied having an affair with a 15-year-old but didn’t specifically address whether he had a romance with McCready.

The former Majority Leader acknowledged that there still so much that needs to be done to eradicate use of PEDs in the sport.

“I would be very doubtful that it is completely clean in the sense nobody is using,” he said. “You don’t know whether this is a temporary response because of the attention it’s gotten and whether over time it will begin to resume an increase. I think that’s unlikely given the aggressive nature of the response, but it’s something you have to be continuously concerned about.”

“The most important thing is to create an attitude which reflects the awareness that this is a dynamic ongoing program,” he said. “You can never reach the stage where you can say, we solved it, that’s it. You may have solved this drug, but there’s a lot of money involved and there are a lot of people who are seeking to make some of that money by creating new illegal drugs. And so you have to have a constant attention, constant focus, constant effort.”
