McNamee Going to The Internets To Make a Buck off Clemens...

Guess Brian McNamee is profiting off his association with Clemens and others in Major League Baseball anyway after having his life thrown through the ringer...

Brian McNamee is selling between 50 and 60 pieces of signed Roger Clemens memorabilia through a Boston-area dealer.

McNamee, who faces a defamation lawsuit from Clemens after testifying to Mitchell report investigators and Congress that he injected the seven-time Cy Young Award-winner with steroids and human growth hormone, has turned the items over to sports memorabilia dealer Phil Castinetti of Sportsworld in Saugus, Mass.

The story was first reported by the Boston Herald.

Items signed by Jose Canseco, Andy Pettitte and Jason Grimsley are also part of the sale.

Castinetti believes the items, including signed hats, jerseys, photographs and baseballs, could fetch as much as $75,000. He has already starting listing them on the Internet auction site eBay.

"He was going to throw this stuff away," Castinetti told the New York Daily News. "Because of the hard feelings between him and Clemens, he wanted nothing to do with it."

Ah, only in America...
