Yesterday Andy Pettitte testified to lawyers of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Pettite was silent about what he revealed when questioned after. Pettitte has already admitted taking Human Growth Hormone when recovering from an elbow injury in 2002 so the line of questions were probably more about his knowledge of other users, namely Roger Clemens, Andy's good friend.
Today Roger Clemens, arguably the greatest pitcher of this generation, also testified to lawyers of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Unlike Pettitte, who looked like he was going to a funeral and was somber on the way out, Clemens entered his interview with confidence and came out- 5 hours later- taking to the microphone and once more claiming he has never used steroids or human growth hormone.
Talk about bold! He is up a major creek if he can be proven to be lying.
My heart wants to believe Roger, my gut is confused, and my head is telling me Pettitte was stressed and silent because he knew he was about to lose a friend for telling the truth.
We'll know what Pettitte said shortly, I think his testimony is key.
