Clemens and Pettitte not named in Grimsley affidavit

Newsday, as well as other outlets, are reporting that Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte were not mentioned in Jason Grimsley's affidavit when it was unsealed today.

The Los Angeles Times reported last year that both, as well as Brian Roberts, were in the affidavit.

While Clemens denies ever using any performance-enhancing drugs, Roberts and Pettitte have already come clean.

Clemens' attorney released a statement tonight:

"When this grossly inaccurate story broke in October 2006, Roger said it was untrue and the Los Angeles Times chose not to believe him. As the record now clearly proves, Roger was telling the truth then, just as he continues to tell the truth today. Roger Clemens did not take steroids, and anybody who says he did had better start looking for a hell of a good lawyer." (LoHud Yankees Blog)
This makes Clemens look good for the moment. However, I still want to hear from Clemens himself, and not from statements released by his people.

It shows he wasn't lying when he denied using drugs when the report on the affidavit came out last year.

It could mean he's not lying now, either.
