The Yankee Captain Defends Roger Clemens…

Well, Derek Jeter, the Yankee captain on Thursday in the New York Post went out a limb and defended Roger Clemens in light of the allegations against him.

"From the NY Post: It seems right now people are rushing to judgment," Jeter said of his pal, whose name headlined the Mitchell Report last week thanks to the testimony of former personal trainer Brian McNamee. "You have to let it play out a little bit before you say he is guilty or not guilty."

Jeter talked tonight before hosting a Turn 2 Foundation night at the movies for 500 children at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

Jeter never has disguised his feelings for Clemens. When Clemens joined the Yankees in 1999, Jeter, who wasn't a fan when Clemens pitched for Boston and Toronto, gravitated toward the legendary pitcher. During the 2006 World Baseball Classic, they shared a house in California.

As well, he speaks out in defense of Andy Pettitte and he revealing he used HGH...

Jeter lauded Andy Pettitte for admitting last weekend that he used HGH in 2002 to help a balky elbow heal quicker. McNamee said in the report he injected Clemens and Pettitte...

"I talked to Andy and he knows how I feel about him," Jeter said. "He came out and was honest about it and it's time to move on."

We shall see what comes of Roger's dilemma; however, he's looked less than endearing in the past week...
