In an effort to save not only face, but his reputation, Roger Clemens once again denied ever using steroids.
From the Baltimore Sun: Roger Clemens posted a video today repeating his denials of the steroids use alleged against him in the Mitchell Report. He also said he would be interviewed for a future episode of "60 Minutes," but a spokesman for CBS said nothing has been finalized.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner was accused in the report of using steroids, an allegation made by his former trainer.
In October last year, the Los Angeles Times reported Clemens was linked to steroids in the May 2006 sworn statement of a federal agent who cited former big league pitcher Jason Grimsley. At the time, the names of players in the public version had been blacked out. When the full affidavit was unsealed Thursday, Clemens' name was not in it, and the paper issued a correction and an apology.
"I faced this last year when the L.A. Times reported that I used steroids. I said it was not true then, and now the whole world knows it's not true, now that that's come out," Clemens said in the video, which was posted Sunday on the Web site of his foundation and on You Tube.
Looks like Roger is definitely going on the offensive to clear his name...
