That being said, I still beleive McNamee, and I think this "evidence" helps his side.
What if the 'evidence' wasn't a syringe, but Clemens fingerprints on the vial of some type of PED? What if he had an audio tape of Clemens talking about PED usage? We will see....
I agree with all you say, and I also believe McNamee. I don't think he has any reason to lie at this point.
He got snagged when Radomski called him out to Mitchell; and Andy Pettite corroborated his part of McNamee's story. Wonder what he told the feds the other day about what he knew concerning Clemens, or if they even asked him?
Very weird of McNamee to save the "evidence." Maybe he always knew this time just might come?
At any rate, Clemens reputation is wrecked from here on out, IMO.
