Roger Clemens’ denial is contagious.
In a Los Angeles Times story, The Rocket’s lawyers vehemently defended his client (shocking, I know).
“For them to say, ‘He’s not getting into the Hall of Fame because I know he did it’?” co-counsel Michael Attanasio said (latimes.com). “I think that’s shameful.”
“I would think that if a baseball writer really wanted conscientiously to cast a vote on one of the greatest pitchers of all time, go look at the evidence,” lead counsel Rusty Hardin said (latimes.com). “See, after you read it, why the jury did it. It wasn’t a crazy jury.”
At least they’re getting paid for their delusion.
