From the AP:
A lawyer for Andy Pettitte’s former personal trainer said yesterday he believes the pitcher will tell Congress he discussed human growth hormone with Roger Clemens between the 2001 and 2002 seasons.
The lawyer, Earl Ward, said Pettitte talked about HGH with trainer Brian McNamee following a conversation with Clemens, who has denied he used HGH or steroids. McNamee worked with both Clemens and Pettitte.
“We’re hopeful based on Andy’s reputation that he will corroborate Brian’s statements with regard to Roger,” Ward said.
When first seeing the headline of “LAWYER: PETTITTE WILL IMPLICATE CLEMENS” on this story, I took it to mean that Pettitte’s lawyer was saying this – which would be a big deal. Reading the story, and seeing that it’s coming from McNamee’s camp, well, we’re better off believing this to be true only when we actually see it happen.
